Cattle meat simmered with fresh local veggies, slowly cooked, buried in burning charcoal..

,melts in your mouth , washed down with excellent local wine or local beer from mini brewery, enjoying mountain breeze, that would be one of our favourite meals that we have over here……

Our favourite wines:

  • Blatina (red wine)
  • Žilavka (white wine)

Both types of wines are favored by locals  in this region.

We preferred the ones from Stojić vineyards.

It wasn’t just the children who were excited about the cakes! 🙂


-Pepi cake shop is well known among the locals. Located opposite near the Mepas Mall, you can’t miss it. Tel: 00387 36320 709.

My favourite desert would be ‘tufahija’, that is, cooked apple, stuffed with crushed walnuts and topped with fresh cream.

My husband’s and my daughter’s would be ‘hurmašica’, a sweet local pastry.

Nb- the “feast fit for royalty’ is regrettably postponed due to my husband’s work schedule as we would need quite a drive to reach our destination. Will update all soon on the home page. Look out for the date, it is definitely not a meal to be missed if you are in Bosnia! 🙂 In my humble opinion. …
