Come and enjoy authentic Serbian food, dancing and live music

COME ENJOY THE FLAVORS

Delicious Food

     Due to the heavy influences of the neighboring cuisines, there exists debate over whether any Serbian cuisine is indeed Serbian. Many see this amalgamation as the reason for its unique mix of various traditions; Serbian confectioneries are places where koljivo, baklava, strudel and sachertorte live in perfect harmony. In recent times the Serbian diaspora has spread the kitchen across the world.
    Most people in Serbia will have three meals daily, breakfast, lunch and dinner, with lunch being the largest. However, traditionally, only lunch and dinner existed, with breakfast being introduced in the second half of 19th century.
    A number of meals, which are simply bought in the West, are often made at home in Serbia; this includes rakija sljivovica (fruit brandy), jam, jelly, various pickled food, sauerkraut (kiseli kupus - pickled cabbage), ajvar (a relish made principally from red bell peppers, with eggplant, garlic and chilli peppers) and even sausages. The reasons for this range from economical to cultural, one being that food preparation is a strong part of the Serbian family tradition.

    According to our faith, on Friday we will be serving large selection of seafood, pastries and sweets.
