radost fina kuhinjica

Let’s be honest that it’s not a secret that Belgrade isn’t really vegan friendly. The Serbs tend to be big on meat  and kafanas are all over the city. Still, we have recently  visited a riveting vegetarian restaurant, situated in a converted apartment near Kalemegdan Fortress. Radost fina kuhinjica (Radost House) stands next to none in Belgrade with their  offer which includes organic and gluten-free vegetarian specialties

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 vegetarian paradise. Meals are lavish, healthy and delicious 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 home-made 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 7 euros. Some of the world celebrities ate here whilst staying in Belgrade, such as members of 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 cosy little place.
