Butik Badem – Nut store

Badem in Bosnian means almond. This little shop was opened more than fifty years ago right in the middle of Baščaršija, the old part of the city. The first thing you will notice when you walk in is the scents of all the spices and mixtures – I hope they inspire you to try something new.

This shop has any spice you can think of, as well as oils, seeds, herbs and traditional Bosnian sweets like “tahan halva” and “rahtlokum”. But the reason why most people come is to buy their delicious mixtures like almonds in tiramisu or various nuts in chocolate or cinnamon – there are lots of combinations. The biggest problem is to decide which one to try and since they sell everything by the kilo I usually end up filling a bag with a little bit of everything.

Also, if you are in the search for gifts, I would suggest to look here – they have things specifically packed for gifts with a selection of traditional Bosnian sweets to try. One of the greatest things about is that, even if you are buying sweets and snacks, you know it’s all healthy with the greatest ingredients…
