Mala Kuhinja

The tiny restaurant operates on a rather unusual basis - there are no menus, but rather a conversation with the waiter about your individual preferences, likes and dislikes. This is followed by a suggestion from the staff, and locally-sourced food is prepared in an open kitchen before your eyes.


Like most areas in the Balkan region, Sarajevo’s cuisine is made up of fresh local produce such as meat (particularly lamb), dairy products, different breads, fresh fruit and vegetables. Traditional dishes to look out for include jagnjetina (lamb grilled over open fire), begova corba (chicken), one of the many stews and the local fast food cevapcici (minced meat sausages). However, be sure to leave space for a piece of baklava, a sweet honey pastry.
