BELGRADE - A city encapsulated by heart, food & culture

BELGRADE - A city encapsulated by heart, food & culture

As part of Future Food’s European projects and our most recent project in Budapest, our team sets off to Belgrade to explore what the city has to offer.

There’s plenty of reasons to visit Belgrade, The capital of the Republic of Serbia, but as usual for us, it’s all about food!  

Belgrade is the natural meeting point of the rivers, Sava and Danube. It is a very cosmopolitan city as you’d expect in a Central/Eastern European Capital and the raw, hard streets speak a story of the history of its people. But under the hard exterior, you’ll find that the people open up as soon as they realise you’re a visitor. Many can, and are willing to speak English and are happy and proud to demonstrate their culture, food and beverages (the infamous Rakija). And food is a big part of the culture!

But this way of life started long before these big companies found it thanks to a group of forward-thinking, health focussed and quality driven chefs and entrepreneurs. We’ve picked five interesting and innovative food outlets that have been plugging the plant-based life long before the ‘trend’ rolled around.
