Our neighbours eat a lot of meat, like Romanians do, so the famous “cevapcici” , called in Romania “mititei” and considered here a traditional dish, are to be found everywhere. Like pizza, which became international. Every location at the seaside has a lot of pizza shops. The Turkish doner chebab can be eaten in every location too, especially in Ulcinj, near Albanian border.
Our drink was mainly the mineral water, as we both drive, taking turns. The best seems to be Kneaz Milos. In the evening, on the terrace of the villa where we had accommodation, we didn’t refuse a glass of white wine, which came along with the beautiful sunsets on the sea…
The prices are, more or less, similar with those in Romania but certainly lower than in Western Europe. For example, a lunch for two, but having as drinks only lemonade, has been 24 euros but a dinner for two, with fish, in a specific restaurant came to 37 euros. But that was the only “excess’ we made, as we like to eat more simple, spending the money for visiting cultural and historical places,instead.
Bucataria romaneasca are suficiente influente balcanice, ca sa nu ni se para ca schimbam complet regimul alimentar cand vizitam una dintre tarile vecine din Balcani.
Ca si noua, vecinilor nostri le place carnea, asa ca “cevapcici” (pronuntat in diverse moduri in functie de tara), adica mititeii “nostri”, se intalnesc la tot pasul. De multa vreme am inteles ca acesta este un fel de preparat tipic pentru Balcani si nu neaparat pentru Romania, desi noi insistam inca sa ii trecem printre mancarurile nostre specifice. La fel ca pe mamaliga, cand toata Italia mananca “polenta”… Ciorbele sunt si ele raspandite, mai ales ciorba de vitel si cea de peste, daca esti la mare sau langa un lac. Doner chebab-ul turcesc nu e nici el asa specific. La Ulcinj, dar si in alte parti, gasesti o multime de mici restaurante specializate. Desigur pizza este un alt fel de mancare raspandit pe mapamond si nelipsit din zonele de vacanta. Si fiindca suntem soferi…apa minerala Kneaz Milos. Cand stam insa pe terasa vilei unde ne-am cazat, ne permitem si un vin demisec, care sa insoteasca apusul soarelui pe mare…
Ceea ce adauga farmec mancarii este insa locatia si amenajarea restaurantului. Iata cateva exemple mai jos.
A gastronomic tour of Montenegro seems to be an interesting and quite unexpensive option!
Yes, it is, VP!
Haha, deci micii nu-s autentici? 😀
Not much for vegetarians, but foods looks really yummy and fresh!
I would love wine in the evenings!
By the way, you have splendid wine in Romania!
Nu, Liliana, ei se regasesc in toata zona balcanica, inclusiv la turci.
Yes, Joo, our wines are very good, many kind of wines, many vineyards but they are less known outside the country. I am glad you appreciated it.
Looks like a fun place. Think I will skip the fish dish but the others look great!
I am not a great fan of fish either, but that is one I am eating, the plaice.
I want to be here. The servings of the food are big. Love the interior of that restaurant.
It’s a rustic restaurant, near a river, Rizalenio. Ducks came on water, near us, and we fed them bred.
It’s always good to have nice food on holiday but sometimes it’s worth throwing in a budget meal in order to stretch the money a little further in things that one may not see again. I must say that this is most unusual looking food to what I’m used to.
It’s my idea too about using the travel budget. The food is characteristic for this zone.
