Food in Belgrade

No matter where you go, you have to eat. Right? Right!
So what can one get on his plate when in Belgrade? Here are a few dishes from different restaurants around Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.


Despite of the fact that Belgrade is nowhere near the Adriatic (or any other) sea, one can choose from quite a wide choice of seafood dishes. Some of the seafood restaurants are even supposed to be quite good.
These two grilled mackerels looked and tasted like they have died at least three times and even that weeks ago. Not very tasty at all...



Most of the restaurants have at least some of the traditional dishes on their menus. The most famous are pljeskavica

(a Serbian version of a hamburger), cevapcici (or ćevapčići to be specific, are made of same kind of meat as pljeskavica, but shaped differently), burek (cheese- or meat-filled pastry).
On the photo is a generous portion of cevapcici with fries. If anything, you don't need to worry about portion sizes in Serbia. Any meat dish ordered usually has at least enough meat to satisfy a hungry lumberjack. This portion was delicious.


Regardless if it is a main dish or desert you want, you can stop at one of the Pancake places. There one can choose from a variety of sweet and salty pancake dishes.
The choice of the evening was a chocolate filled pancake with walnuts and ice-cream. And it was a huge one. The salty ones looked just as good.


Considering the prices I guess everyone was satisfied with the food. Sometimes you just need to be prepared to wait a little bit longer - after all this still is the Balkans. Time does run a bit slower there. I guess when on vacation, that's just what you want. ;)

Mmm... the traditional dish seems quite lovely to me, and the pancake does seem quite a large portion as well. Is there any other dishes (esp. the traditional one) you could show us? :)

Unfortunately these are all of the photos taken on this trip in the department of Serbian traditional food.
However, you can try the Google images search. Try entering: raznjici, burek, pljeskavica, prebranac, pasulj and odojak.

Those are all widely known dishes. If you like meat, you should do just fine in Serbia. ;)
