Living The Serbian Dream: Serbian Food

Living the Serbian dream: Serbian food

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!.

Well, follow the free walking tour of Belgrade of Jessica and Grace thanks to the 48 pictures of Belgrade they took! For more information about Belgrade, visit the website of the Tourist Organization of Belgrade.

Belgrade Is Not Washington… Hopefully

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?
