In a city where carnism is a part of dining culture, definitely, it is not easy to be vegetarian. Mercifully, there are a handful of nice foodie spots where one can find vegetarian specialties and raw food dishes. So, let’s see our recommendations:
RADOST FINA KUHINJICA
Radost has this delightful atmosphere and a pleasant interior complete with its wooden pieces of furniture. It’s a small place cosseted away from the city hustle and bustle and not too open to the gaze of random tourists. There is no sign in the street whatsoever that this restaurant even exists and the owner doesn’t seem to like websites either, so basically the word of mouth made this place visible on the culinary map of Belgrade.
I personally love it. In this restaurant, I caught a glimpse of a vegetarian paradise. Meals are lavish, healthy, and deliciously full of nutrients that most of us rarely get to eat at home. Tacos with lettuce and pomegranate are surely a perfect choice, soups, and homemade burgers with beets and buckwheat without meet as well. I am also a big lover of wine, so I would recommend Serbian wine “Tri Morave” or alternatively one can just drink some smoothie.
Surprisingly enough the most costly meal in this restaurant costs as little as 8 euros. Some of the world’s celebrities ate here whilst staying in Belgrade, such as members of the Depeche Mode band, Italian jazz musician Nicola Conte and Hollywood actress Salma Hayek. But do not let these famous guests put you off. Radost Fina Kuhinjica is a very cozy little place.
Hidden behind the residential building in Svetogorska St., Mezestoran represents a unique oasis of quality Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. Foodies can choose between delicious meze (hors d’oeuvre) such as Croquettes with mild tahini sauce, Summer rolls with shrimps, Fresh mussels “Agioli” (in a sauce of garlic and wine), and salads and Italian pasta. We would recommend Cretan wine and the finest krempita in town. On sunny days guests can dine in a lovely garden that now works all year round.
Zadruga, is a local healthy food concept. It includes a restaurant, cafe, bakery, and store. Guests can choose from tasty raw vegan cakes and ginger juice to salads and pottage, rolls, and other healthy and delicious dishes. This place is super popular and very busy.
MAJSTOR & MARGARITA
Majstor & Margarita (Eng. Master and Margarita) is a must-visit pizzeria that has recently moved to Vuka Kardzica St. Next to the vibrant atmosphere, Majstor & Margarita serves the finest pizza in town. Our favorites are the vegetarian pizza and a sweet pizza with Nutella (yes, this is a must-try).
If you visit this place don’t hesitate to order “house wine”!
The first vegan and low waste bar in Belgrade stands in Donji Dorcol (Eng. Lower Dorcol) in Venizelosova st. In this cozy place called VeZa vegans can have a meal, drink a local craft beer and grab a coffee. Veza is also suitable for working on a laptop.
A unique cafe, store, and eatery that sells locally made health products such as wine, ajvar, cheese, meat, and so forth. As well, it serves awesome sandwiches and salads like a multi-vitamin salad for example, or salad with eggs. Next to serving delicious food, this place works as a cafeteria and has a very lovely minimalist interior and super friendly staff.
Cao sugar pastry shop sells, natural cookies, and cakes without additional sugar are available at the price ranging from 1 to 30 euros. Delicious, creamy and healthy products are available at 15 Rige od Fere Street in Dorcol historical. Do not hesitate to try Chocolate- cherry cake or maybe Blueberry pistachio.
An old-school place situated on King Alexander Boulevard. Jazzayoga eatery serves sandwiches, wraps, salads, freshly squeezed juice, tapas, muesli, and a breakfast menu.
