This is a portion of this Momondo experience collection, in which Momondo challenged me into a expertise in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I believed it’d be the perfect place, Because Sarajevo is the capital and biggest city in the country.
Sarajevo has from, so that I began my gastronomic tour as anyone with a caffeine addiction does — with conventional Bosnian java.
See our episode about What to See and Eat in Sarajevo
Bosnian coffee is powerful, but is not bitter. It’s always served with sugar cubes and a glass of cold water. As much as you might be tempted into, don’t gulp it quickly. Bosnian coffee should be enjoyed. Stir the foam at the top and fall from the sugar cube stir some more.
Do some people watching before starting and we picked Miris Dunja near the Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque from the Bascarsija to take advantage of the weather.
After holiday around the old town (Stari Grad) for a little while more, we worked up a desire for the go-to fast food of the country, pies! The most typical of these would be Börek (conspicuous boo-reck), that is essentially fried, flaky paradise made from layers of crispy delicate phyllo dough and stuffed with meat, cheese, spinach, potato, or a combination of these. For a true Bosnian dish, then it must be baked in a sac (big metal pan) and wrapped up into a coal-burning oven.
If you would like to be traditional, eat your pie. The yogurt will coat your stomach and quench your thirst better than water, which you will love after a meal like pie. Buregdzinica Sac at Stari Grad is prepares, cheap and clean the pies the conventional manner. My favorite is that the minced meat and potato pie, with cheese Börek coming from strong.
No trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina is complete without looking for the unofficial national dish,? Evap?i?i (conspicuous che-vap-chee-chee). These minced meatballs are the undisputed kings of foods that are fast that are Bosnian. It is possible to locate them throughout the Balkans.
Family and every restaurant has its own secret recipe for making them , and almost anywhere you walk into Sarajevo between the hours of 10 and 1 PM, you will catch the smell of? . We have a consensus? Evap?i?i is currently in restaurant Ferhatovi? At the Bascarsija quarter. And they were put on! The meatballs were amazing, especially with a chopska salad.
? Evap?i?i is often served with chopped raw onions and fresh Somun bread, which might appear to be a plain old pita at first glance, but is the job of master bakers and can be quite a laborious procedure. As soon as you taste it, then you will see why it is so good — the perfect mix of softness, chewiness, and crustiness that goes with tender juicy? evap?i?i. We had the pleasure of seeing Somun bread has been created in the Alifakovac family bakery in Sarajevo.
Nobody needs to leave Sarajevo without experiencing its fine dining scene. ? Pies and evap?i?i are great, but sometimes it’s great to change gears to get a more refined meal. We wished to sample Bosnian mix meals and Herzegovina wines at a modern, relaxing setting, and we ended up in the very best restaurant at the Sarajevo, 4 Sobe Gospode Safije (“The 4 Rooms of Mrs. Sofia”).
The name of the restaurant Adheres to the love between Safije, a Muslim Woman, along with Johan, an Count .
The restaurant is located only a 5-minute cab ride.
A warm, welcoming ambiance and gorgeous classic furnishings functioned to the meal we had there. The menu of risottos, salads, fish, and pastas has been a nice change from the rapid casual eateries of their Stari Grad. Following a menu of chocolate soufflé, mushroom risotto, tuna steak, lamb stew, and beef carpaccio, we knew Bosnian gastronomy is.
We expect you one day find yourself in Sarajevo that is amazing, and that you take part! Bosnia and Herzegovina does not have any lack of herbs, produce, fresh meats, as well as wines. There’s literally something grilling at every turn, which means you will be spoilt for choice, frying, roasting, and sour. Food is delivered by sarajevo !
