The MICHELIN Guide Belgrade 2021 was unveiled today, 7th December. This inaugural selection brings together 14 restaurants and includes everything from a restaurant in a shopping centre to one in a former customs house… and the range of cuisines is equally diverse, from classical and authentic to modern and creative; Serbian and Mediterranean to Japanese.
The country’s multi-faceted cuisine – brought about by its geographical location between East and West, and the richness of its exchanges throughout history – has created a strong and varied culinary culture, where Turkish, Hungarian, and other Balkan influences abound.
The Serbian landscape, full of rich and fertile lands, supplies a wonderful range of high-quality produce all year round – while, throughout the ages, Serbia has also been known for its viticulture. The result is a culinary scene that is vibrant, popular and accessible to all.
