You are traveling on a budget and you don’t want to spend too much money on food?! Or, maybe you are living in Belgrade and you want to eat some delicious, but affordable food. In any case, we are issuing this short guide to assist our readers to eat well while staying in Belgrade.
Take a look at our top 5 budget meals.
BUREK AND YOGURT AT BOBE
Burek is a traditional Serbian meal. It’s a pie filled with cheese, meat or sometimes it’s just empty. The most famous one is cheese burek. Usually, locals eat burek for breakfast and it is known to be a great hangover killer. Since the burek is a bit oily it is recommended to drink yogurt while eating.
You can find burek in almost all local bakeries. However, we recommend one historical-Dorcol bakery called Bobe.
Price: burek+ yogurt cost around 1-1,5 e
PLJESKAVICA WITH KAJMAK AT DEKI
Pljeskavica is a genuine Serbian burger. You can eat it in all traditional kafana (tavern/restaurant) or on the street, however, the quality of the meat is questionable in the majority of places and that of course affects the taste. The one we would like to mention is pljeskavica with kajmak (Serbian dairy product) and lepinja (local bread) at one downtown restaurant called Cevap kod Dekija.
Price: pljeskavica+kajmak+local draft beer cost around 4-5 e
PIZZA AT BUCKO
Street pizzeria Bucko is a Belgrade classic. One piece of pizza costs less than 1 euro, but since the taste of the pizza is actually nothing special the locals put different salads on the top, such as chicken or beef, and in that way transform less than average pizza in a delicious meal that you won’t find everywhere else than in Belgrade.
Price: a piece of pizza with beef salad cost around 1-1,5 e
ASIAN FOOD AT WOK REPUBLIC
If you are a lover of Asian food don’t hesitate to drop by Wok republic. This fast food place offers a variety of vegetarian and meat options you can order online or at Wok. The food is fresh and always delicious. The brand is local, but the chefs are Asian.
Price: a box of Asian food costs around 4-5e
BREAKFAST AT NACHOS
Nachos is one of the oldest bars and restaurants, that is located in the former Silicon Valley. The good side of this place is the breakfast. You can choose until 1 pm your favorite breakfast. The selection goes from English to Mexican and Serbian ones. The price includes one juice and one coffee.
Price: breakfast+coffee+juice costs around 3 e
