Serbian 'fast food' Jun 27, 2014
Kopitareva Street, know better as Tinkers Alley, is a charming place in the centre of Niš where many local kafanas (cafes) are located. All of them serve traditional Serbian ‘fast food’ dishes like pljeskavica or ćevapi which are perfect for a rather big lunch or dinner.
We ventured out there to have another typical meal. Amongst all the kafanas, we picked the one that actually does not have a name – it is the only one with yellow marquis and Jelen logo. It looked pleasant and wasn’t as fully packed, which was exactly what we were after.
Being now towards the end of our trip, we weren’t expecting to find anything different on the menu from what we have already tasted. To our surprise, a big burger-looking dish on the table next to us caught our attention. After enquiring with the waiter, it turned out to have been a well-known dish – pljeskavica (mincemeat burger stuffed with cheese, ham and mushrooms), which we still haven’t tried.
Due to enormous (and I do not over-exaggerate here) portions of the dish, weighing about half a kilo each, we decided to order only 2 of those with a portion of sopska salad and no fries.
The dish was very tasty, but we never managed to finish what we ordered. The portions were far too big to eat in just one sitting.
Nonetheless, it was another interesting experience of Serbian cuisine – the one not to miss if you in the country.
The total price paid – around €9.
