It’s not so easy being vegetarian or vegan in the proud carnivorous nation like Serbia. Many Serbian people like to say that the meal is not the real meal without at least something made out of meat. The eating trends are slowly changing, and the proof is the growing trend of vegetarian and vegan-friendly restaurants around the country. Naturally, Belgrade, the urban center of Serbia, holds the most of them. Here is a list of the four inspiring vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Belgrade.
The name of this restaurant means “Happiness Nice Cuisine.” That’s pretty much a perfect description of the atmosphere and ambient in the restaurant. Through different combinations of flavors and foods from the world countries, Radost Fina Kuhinjica offers a tasty, happy and healthy vegetarian meal that will certainly make your day better. Each dish shines out with the inspiration, attention and artsy cooking skills so the guest can enjoy in the visual part as well.
