Breakfast on the East – dinner on the West Coast of USA

In October, although there were not many texts on the Chakula Web, this does not mean that this month was not extremely busy. Namely, Chakula is among 70 startups from 42 countries, which are part of the YTILI program. More about the program and the American experience will certainly be in the following articles. In the meantime, my friend Nihad has prepared for Chakula his gastro experience from a recent trip to the United States. Nihad is the author of the text. Photos are from his private album and from the Five Leaves NY website. Traveling through the United...

Gastro review: Noovi Sarajevo

In the past week, Sarajevo has been blooming in the aura of Sarajevo Film Festival. We watched a lot of movies, socialized and of course ate. Sarajevo at the time of the Festival hosts a multitude of tourists. Regardless of whether my friends visit me during the SFF or during the rest of the year, everyone has already learned that we start the tour in my other house Noovi. For years, in Noovi, I’ve been eating what they offer on the board, not the menu. On arrival, they bring me my prosecco, and so I start every good story....

Gastro review: Megi Mostar

Megi is a place where locals and guests come to eat. It is holiday season and if you go to one of the neighboring countries on vacation or you are off to the coast of BiH, all the roads lead over Mostar.

It has meat and vegetarian dishes, pasta, fish dishes, as well as children’s portions. I remind you that the goal of gastronomic stories is to be “undercover”, so...

Torte i to, Sarajevo

This is a story for all hedonists and lovers of quality and real cakes. Although to tourists or someone who is less often in Sarajevo will seem that we have a lot of places where you can really enjoy great cakes and coffee, the truth is completely different. People often ask me why Chakula is different and ask whether it is that another blog about healthy cooking. And some more expectations and illusions I’ll have to break you. Namely, Chakula is not gluten-free, yeast-free, sugar-free, blunt space. Same as with Sarajevo and its places. Chakula is a place where...

Where to eat the best falafel in Sarajevo?

The main ingredient of the Israeli falafel are fava beans or chickpeas. Falafel is invented by the Egyptian Bedouins. It is easy to prepare and it is served with tahini sauce. Falafel is a great option no matter whether you are vegetarian or not, because it is abundant with fibers, proteins and folic acid. You can prepare it yourself, but from the several I tried in Sarajevo, by far the best one is in Bon Appétit restaurant. I remind you that the goal of gastronomic stories is to be “undercover”, so photos are from the cell phone. The main...
