Don’t miss out on ajvar
Ajvar is more than just a condiment in the Balkans; it's an integral component of local cuisine. The key ingredient is a special kind of fresh red pepper, but the spices used can vary from region to region. To make Ajvar, the peppers must be grilled, peeled, and stewed with a variety of herbs and spices for a long period of time. Ajvar's versatility is a big part of why it's so popular as it can be enjoyed as a salad, sandwich spread, or delightful addition to a meat-based meal.
Vegetarians will have a tough time
Meat is one of the crucial parts of Montenegrin cuisine which is why those who don’t eat meat will have a tough time finding vegetarian versions of the local dishes. Even if the recipe doesn’t include meat, it may be fried in lard or use eggs. Your best bet while staying there would be vegetarian sarma or many types of local salads and cheeses.
Seafood lovers will love buzara
This traditional Montenegrin meal includes a variety of seafood, generally prawns, although it may also be made with squid or fish. The red buzara utilizes red wine and tomato whereas the white buzara uses white wine for the signature sauce.
Discover as many restaurants
Though Montenegro is quite a small country, it is best explored by car. You don’t want to be confined to only one tourist city. Therefore, travel by car when in this gorgeous coastal country. If you don’t have access to your own car, renting is always an option. This way you’ll be mobile enough to explore most of the country and its lovely vineyards, restaurants, and hidden gems.
Restaurant culture is a bit different
Visiting local as many local restaurants as possible should be on your bucket list while in Montenegro. However, be wary that you will get your bill immediately with your order. If you opt for more food or beverages, the waiters will keep delivering extra bills. That's something to keep in mind. They don't expect you to pay the bill or bills until you finish the meal but don’t be surprised when you get the bill at the same tie as your hearty plate of sarma.
Cevapi are the finest option
Smoky and aromatic served with flatbread and onions, cevapi are some of the best foods Montenegro has to offer. As well as Bosnia and Herzegovina and the neighbouring nations of Serbia, Croatia, and the North Macedonian Republic, the Cevapi are immensely popular in the southern European region as a whole. Sliced onion, ajvar, and sour cream top off the entire meal. The sausages lay on a traditional flatbread called lepinja.
