Food Tip: If you're in Belgrade and looking for street food, try ordering 'burek'' or 'pljeskavica'. Burek is a type of flaky dough pastry that is usually filled with either minced meat, cheese or various fruits and is served hot. If you're up for a real burger, try a pljeskavica! Similar to a regular burger but usually a blend of meats like pork, lamb and beef. The patty itself is always very big and traditionally topped with Serbian Ajvar and Kajmak.
