Tip # 6 .... EAT , EAT, EATTTTTTTT!!!!

I have traveled to many countries but have never seen or eatn such awesome food!!!!!!!!!!!! They are a country that prides themselves on their food. Most families are not wealthy but they eat soooo much awesome healthy food!!!

It shows even in the markets.. I bought some eggs in a cartoon and they still had manure on them!!! ahhaahh.. Shows they are fresh…

Ajvar is a great treat for those that have never been to Serbia. It is a added condiment like ketchup but has soooo much taste.. it is made with Eggplant, peppers and spice!!! I was in love the first time i sampled it!!! I love to add it to my hamburgers and add cheese for a dip!!!

They eat lots of pork and chicken in their meals so it would be a tough place to be a veggie lover!!! ahhaah…

Cevapis are a MUST have too!! They are made from rolled up bits of hamburger in a bun the size of your head and great with ajvar, sourcream and onion!!!

My all time favorite and most unique serbian food is Sarma!!! It is made from soured cabbage with rice and meat rolled into it!!! They eat it a lot on their holy “slava” or saints day!!! You have to have it!!! I could eat them all day!!!!!!!

    Btw, when you mentioned Slava, you should write a new post about it, because as far as I know, you Americans don’t have “Slava”, there are just thanksgiving, independents day and these holidays for winter… Tell America what is Slava here 😀 I hope you’ve been to some of them 🙂

      Serbs are the only ones who have Slava. Greeks have Name Days but that’s not the same. So yeah, it would be a good post for him.

      @Charles – Make sure you get good facts and details from friends though about Slavas. Not all in info found in English online is correct.

        I taught that too… but, no!
        Serbs are not the only ones to have Slava… in Egypt, there are Ortodox people as well – The Copts and they have Slava in a same manner as Serbs…. each family has a saint protector.. and so on, and so on…

    …been in Zrenjanin today and ate one of the best pljeskavica you can find in Serbia, in my humble opinion…
    So, this time, yours truly is making a suggestion for a not so romantic, but really tasty serbian dinner. What can you lose- give it a go! 🙂
    Location- “Bjeko Grill” in Zrenjanin, choice of the day- famous “pljeskavica a la Bjeko”… just beware- one is more than enough for two people (880gr of meat!)… tip- goes really well with sour cabbage on the side…
    Bon appetite! 🙂
    …and if you like it, let me know so that I can suggest more yummy serbian stuff. 😉

    Hey! just to precise, Sarma is a turkish dish that was spread to the Balkans during Ottoman Empire’s reign, but I guess Serbian’s developped a personalized one. We still say sarma in Turkey too. Also, there are other turkish food common in balkans, such as Borek.
    Just to share! I think I’d like to try serbian plum dumplings…

      This is true of course. I guess we just grew to love sarma and burek so much that we consider it our own and forget the origin of those delicious meals 😉

    I’ve been living in Serbia for over a year now and that is really my only complaint other than working wages is the food. For me it is lacking in spice and overall taste. I am from the deep south however so maybe my bar for spicing up food is a little high. I prefer my bacon still cooked which my wife thinks I’m nuts for doing and she thinks I’m even more crazy for using the bacon grease in other food. I miss American hot sauce also. The hot sauce here is more like ketchup and not hot enough for my taste and the beer is nothing to write home about. Oh how I love Rakija though. Its the best stuff ever! Anyway, keep up the good work on your blog and showing the world the true side of Serbs and their beautiful country.
