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. If, like me, you are not a fan of lamb and restaurants along the way, then Megi is the right place for you. In Megi there is something for everyone. 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...

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...

Tastes of Portugal

When I was in Portugal for the first time, we had quite a lot of time, as tourists do to discover all the great places, for eating of course.

Also, I could share with my fellow travellers the tried-and-true impression of something  and whether it is really as claimed on Trip Advisor. And believe me, I enjoyed a return visit to Portugal. As a travel guide, I guided my friends and talked about everything I knew. But given that my company...

Tastes of Asia: South Korea

For some time now, I have been announcing that Chakula’s associate is wandering around Asia and that I will share some of her gastronomic experiences. The first one is from Seoul and Jeju Island in South Korea. I believe that these photos and various dishes you will rarely see. Our associate points out that the food is quite spicy and that some of the dishes have a very intense smell, which certainly takes time to get used to. Initially, she did not like like what was served, but in time she was very accustomed and enjoying all tastes and...

Gastro review: Ferdinand dumplings, Belgrade

I know that as soon as you’ve seen the cover photo, you knew about what I’m going to write. We were recently in Belgrade and I shared a photo of Nutella dumpling on Instagram, which caused an overall enthusiasm. Certainly it cannot be measured with our enjoyment while we tried the very dumpling. Since we got there early in the morning, we waited for the rest of the dumplings in the photo to be made, so we could pack them in the box and bring it to Sarajevo. On the photo there are dumplings with almonds, pistachios, nuts, plums, blackberries,...
