Harriet Ruff, a 21-year-old woman from Warsash (UK) living in Geneva, Switzerland decided to visit Serbia:
Telling people that I went to Serbia on holiday generally ensues a series of raised eyebrows and questioned intentions…Serbia is not the third world country that everyone imagines.
Yes, it’s not. Harriet Ruff enjoyed her holiday in Serbia and wrote a great blog post talking quite exclusively about Serbian food. It’s seems that the British woman loved Serbian food. Here is a short excerpt but read the whole blog post:
A palačinke is essentially a pancake or crêpe. Sweet or savoury but with a specific base. Savoury always comes with sour cream. It’s a great addition. And sweet are either a Nutella or Eurocrem base. Eurocrem is a sort of white chocolate and milk chocolate mixed spread. It’s delightful. Plazma are another Serbian great. Apparently biscuits for babies that everybody eats. They’re a cross between a rich tea biscuit and a digestive. Crumble that on a eurocrem palačinka and you are living the Serbian dream.
Jessica, a young black American woman, and her friend Grace Lee Barlow made a trip to Belgrade last month. They had both a great time in Belgrade, enjoying Serbian food, Skadarlija (the bohemian quarter of Belgrade), Kalemegdan fortress, and Rakija (plum brandy) at 11am!.
Kon Tiki Travel, one of the top travel agencies in Serbia, made a nice video presenting Serbia. ‘Welcome in Serbia’ is showing Belgrade, Serbian monasteries, Serbian nature, Serbian food and Serbian sports stars. Great job! Good music! Enjoy! This is Serbia. Welcome in Serbia:
In his video, Luka Skrbic recommends people to move to Serbia. Why? Because, Serbian people are friendly, Serbia is a beautiful country, Serbian food is fantastic and the cost of living is really low. Well, watch Luka Skrbic’s video, and move to Serbia:
I know that French cuisine is fantastic as I lived 40 years in France before coming to Serbia. But if you’re looking for the best food in the world, look no further. Serbian food is one of the great pleasures of travel in the Balkans. Well, watch this video uploaded yesterday to Youtube, Serbian food is fantastic:
A ‘crazy’ Serb trying to order Serbian food specialities (Burek, pljeskavica, etc.) in fast food chains in the United States. This ‘crazy’ Serb is even trying to pay in Serbian Dinars in the United States! A funny video:
Serbs don’t get fat, but they do eat bread and pastry, drink wine, rakija, beer, and regularly enjoy pljeskavica (Serbian hamburger) the best hamburger in the world. Of course you can also (here in Serbia) go to McDonald’s, but is it really a good idea?
Here’s a great video showing Kafana, New York’s first Serbian restaurant, located in Manhattan’s East Village. Serbian cuisine is a favorite cuisine among food lovers everywhere. A little piece of Serbia in New York:
Back in November 2011, I wrote about an American woman, V-Rah, from Washington, D.C., who is living with her husband in Belgrade for two years. She pointed out that Belgrade was not Washington. Talking about food and restaurants, it seems that Belgrade is not Washington at all! V-Rah wrote recently a well written, and funny blog post talking about Serbian food, drinks, and restaurants in Belgrade. Here’s a short excerpt, but it’s worth reading the whole thing:
Authentic Serbian restaurants serve heaps of sausages, steaks, chicken, lamb, veal (which I think is little cruel, but nonetheless), and two really cool, authentic Serbian specialties: the Ćevapčići and the Pljeskavica . I am not exactly sure of their difference in terms of seasoning, but they are both basically made out of ground beef and pork, mixed together in the form of sausage links or a giant hamburger patty, respectively. They are both really, really good and can be served either in a sandwich or a platter, with plain yogurt or tzatziki sauce, pickled cabbage, paprika (which is what they call the red pepper flakes), and tomato, and if you go to the right place, they’ll put the french fries inside the pita. They both cost less than 5 dollars and are conveniently sold everywhere in kiosk type establishments.
Just one thing. V-Rah, stop trying to compare Washington to Belgrade. It’s useless. They are fundamentally different from each other in sooooooooo many ways. That being said, here are my two cents: Serbian food is the best (even Serbian hamburgers). And Serbian restaurants are far more cheaper than in the States. What else?
