Restaurants and "restaurants" in Serbia
« on: September 17, 2016, 04:17:53 am »
Restaurant "Kovac" ("Blacksmith ") in Belgrade.



The menu is dominated by traditional Serbian cuisine - corn bread, cheese, cream cheese and ham for breakfast.
Then, as the day goes - homemade bread, veal and lamb, stuffed peppers, gourmet ribs podvarku, stuffed cabbage, beans, goat in milk, smoked pork knuckle with flakes, Leskovac beater, delicacies from the grill ...
Orasnice, famous cold pancakes and homemade custard tarts - as dessert for last. Or to start.

Let me put this way. For foreign tourist - Not. For me - Yes. I eat at "restaurants" ( fast or junk food ) when I do not eat at home. If you pay extra cash more - you tried extra Serbian cuisine ( there is live music also ).
One madam from forum is interested in restaurants in Serbia then I opened this topic. This is just a beginning.

Oh Wow, Thank you Al for starting this thread.  It looks
very nice and thank you for including traditional Serbian menus.

The photo looks like a very nice "relaxed" environment and I can
see myself sitting there.   I like the neutral wood tone colors and
the very  architecturally unique looking roof pitches  in the background.

They anchor this restaurant and make it look - feel - very private where
a couple of people could sit there and have a very relaxed meal and
enjoy their conversation , even if they sat there for two hours. 

Al, I followed everything on the menu except for this one -

Leskovac beater

And the tarts for dessert, homemade custard tarts, perfect dessert.

Is Coffee on the menu also?  I like really good strong coffee.

Are tips included in the price of the menu items?  Here in the U.S.A.
basic tip for a waiter or waitress is 20%  of the total, before tax. 

And about stuffed cabbage... good stuff!

I knew that you ask what is Leskovacka muckalica ( Leskovac is city in Serbia so do not brake your tongue jus say muckalica ).
I love picant and hot food like Muckalica. But stuffed cabbage ( sarma ) is the best. We married because sarma.

Here the recipe to surprise your family:

Serbian tip: "keep the change".  waiter and waitress are satisfy. Same is in taxi ( cab), hairdresser...but is they no satisfy when custom do not give the tip. That custom is for long years in Serbia.

Do most of the fine restaurants have a dress code? 
No jeans and tennis shoes, type dress code?

Ever have escargot Al?  It's good when prepared in a creamy
garlic white sauce.  Grand Marnier Souffle  is also really good
for a dessert.   

High end fancy restaurants are nice, but then so are what we
American's call "Hole in the wall" type places too,  the good
restaurants that are off the beaten path, don't advertise but
word of mouth gets around, you have to try this...and that...
at the hole in the wall restaurants.

When I'd stomp around San Francisco, some of the best
restaurants in Chinatown were literally back alley entrances.
You walk down an alley and then go in through an unmarked door.

I'd like to find an authentic Italian Restaurant sometime in the big
city a couple of hours from me and see if their Lasagna compares to mine :)
