Lorenzo and Kakalamba is the most eclectic place I have ever seen. Some would say it’s too kitschy but it certainly won’t leave anyone indifferent.
As you walk into the restaurant, you will get the impression that you are in a theater. No matter how many times I’ve been here, I am always enchanted with all the details that give me the impression I’ve gone down a rabbit hole and am facing Alice in Wonderland. Take a look downwards and you’ll see that part of the floor is made out of glass through which you can see the staff preparing food.
Once I am escorted to my butt-shaped chair, my eyes have started to get used to all the glitz, so I notice armchairs made of stuffed toys, makeshift Pirot rugs, curtains made out of pink neon lights, comic reproductions of the famous Florentine sculptures etc.
Food-wise, Lorenzo and Kakalamba combines Italian and the cuisine from the south of Serbia. Whatever I order, I always ask for pepper. The waiter then takes a pepper grinder that is so large he has to lean it on his shoulder.
My personal favorite is the chocolate sphere which I usually share with my friends if we have had dinner prior to dessert. As the name implies, it comes as a chocolate ball on top of which the waiter spills hot chocolate so that the sphere starts to melt slowly, uncovering a chocolate brownie and chocolate ice cream.
