The Serbian gastronomy is a strong mix of oriental, central European and local Balkan cuisines (such as Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Macedonia), offering an overwhelming variety of meals. Besides in restaurants and kafanas (Serbian name for something like a tavern), Serbs tend to eat lots of fast food, especially grilled for lunch, and pastry for any other meal. There is also a nice variety of seafood that you’ll find, given it’s close proximity to the Mediterranean coast (Adriatic sea).
Serbian food is mainly heavy, with plenty of calories. Meat, pastry and local vegetables dominate in Serbian cuisine.
