Restoran Čačanin, Rakovica

BELGRADE | In Serbia for a couple of days, and I wanted to try some traditional dishes that I’d not eaten before. My friend Boris told me that he knew just the spot. A half hour bus ride to the outskirts of Belgrade, and some confusion until I realised that the place I was looking for was behind the bakery at the address, I found myself at Restoran Čačanin.

Restoran Čačanin is one of those unfancy places that you always find casual catch-ups and multi generation family get togethers happening. It’s been around forever, focusing on traditional Serbian dishes done right, with a focus on regional Čačak-style cooking.

Ingredients are quality, and servings are large. You’ll find all of the classics here. Starters like kajmak, cheese, pickled veg, and smallgoods, an array of salads, and larger plates. Karađorđe, a rolled, breaded, and fried veal cutlet filled with kajmak, is a must try. So to, the hearty mućkalica, a stew of barbecued meat and vegetables.

Peppers in all their forms are wonderful, be it roasted, marinated, or breaded, fried, and stuffed with kajmak. There’s cevapcici, pljeskavica, and an assortment of grilled meats, and sarma of course. Be sure to leave room for dessert. The krempita, a vanilla slice-like chantilly and custard cream cake dessert, is a must try.

Wash it all down with some local house wine. It’s cheap, tasty, and served in a carafe.
