Mala Fabrika Ukusa (Small flavor factory) is a restaurant situated in a peaceful green area below the Temple of Saint Sava. The relaxing atmosphere with natural wood/brick/stone look is a plus to the good food. Once, I ate grilled dry plum filled with goat cheese and wrapped with bacon. And it was delicious, but I was surprised by how it was served. As you know, some of the streets in Belgrade are covered with cobblestone. Plums in Mala fabrika ukusa are served on wooden sticks stubbed with cobblestone! And with other meals Mala fabrika ukusa gives us the opportunity to taste a little bit of tradition with a modern dressing: Monastery chicken, gypsy dances…
Definitely this restaurant succeeds in passing on high-quality tradition in a new modern style.
Mala fabrika ukusa is at the “Neimar” (it’s not named after the famous Brazilian football player), one of the old parts of Belgrade which is still resisting change. In some other parts of old Belgrade, you can see new metal / glass buildings rise up in place where beautiful old buildings used to stand — faster than the growth of a magic bean.
So, after you wake up in Belgrade, visit Saint Sava Temple, go to colorful Kalenić square, and then come down to Mala fabrika. And there it is — a perfect day in Belgrade!
