Tacos, pasta, sushi, falafel, you name it. Aside from the popular world cuisines, available for both in-house dining and takeaway, experiencing the rich and vibrant wonder known as Serbian food should also be on the top of your list. Pljeskavica is the local variant of the American burger, a grilled meat patty particularly popular among the swarms of Belgrade’s youth in the early morning hours after a night out in the city. Other local delicacies include sarma, a type of slow-cooked cabbage roll, pastries like gibanica or proja, the roasted pepper relish known as ajvar, the creamy kajmak that should be spread over freshly baked bread. Serbian food alone is worth a visit to Belgrade.

As for those looking to complement a healthy lifestyle with tasty, but nutritious dishes – have no fear, Belgrade gets you. From all-vegan restaurants to places serving fresh organic snacks, there is an abundance of delectable options to satisfy even the most health-conscious bunch.

Last but not least, it’s worth noting that local eateries and fast-food joints alike are all affordable compared to Belgrade’s European peers, with prices ranging from €2 for grabbing a bite at local street food vendors to €10 for a main course at more higher-end restaurants. Enjoying a budget-friendly meal in Belgrade is easy, picking just one place from the vast line-up of restaurants – that’s a whole other story.

And once you’re done indulging in some of the local specialties or more cosmopolitan dishes, make sure to down a traditional Serbian/regional coffee. As one of the top coffee cultures in Europe, Serbians like their coffee strong and black, often with a side of ratluk (Turkish delight).
