Adriatic Café Oslo – Taste of the Balkans

"Adriatic Café" in Oslo brings me back all the sentiment of living in the Balkans. The atmosphere is unpretentious, the food is cheap & the burek fatty...

Back home in Slovenia, there isn't a picnic without cevapi or party night without burek at 3 o' clock in the morning. Surely that is a reason for my occasional sentimental moments when Adriatic Cafe feels just the right choice. The atmosphere is unpretentious here, the food is cheap, the cevapcici is juicy and the burek fatty - just as it should be in any proper Balkan cafe.

Adriatic is conveniently located right by Sofienberg park, one of the most popular “let's enjoy the sunny day outside” parks in Oslo. It gets packed in summer, with music blasting from the speakers, spontaneous jam sessions and tai-chi classes, kids running around and big families wrapped in the distinct smell of “eingangsgrill” (single-use grill that is incredibly popular in Norway). So what can be more perfect than to join the vibe, lay on the grass and share some cevapi with your friends? And is there a better cure for hangover than burek and a big glass of cold yoghurt? I don't think so.
