Meaty goodness

Apparently Serbia has a law that says each main course has to have 250g of meat. That may or may not be true, but it certainly gives you an idea of what to expect from a Serbian dinner experience. There’ll be lashings of barbecued chicken, pork and beef, sausage, chops, mince and skewers of meat that are far, far, far removed from the dodgy 3am kebabs you’ll find in many cities. And it’ll be heaps cheaper too.

Wine and beer

Serbian wine doesn’t have an international reputation for its quality, but there are some very good locally-produced white wines that are worth trying. Beer (or pivo as its known in Serbia) is cheap and pretty good.
