Dzenita – Where traditional food is at its best!

On the account of you being a tourist here of course you’re going to go out and look for traditional food in Sarajevo and for that, this is a fantastic place to recommend. Traditional to the core with tastes of homemade, loving food.

Dzenita has a special vibe, although it is located in Bascarsija, old town, surrounded with many traditional restaurants, it still manages to be unique – thanks to their fresh, homemade food and such kind staff. Prices are very affordable – rich soup, main dish and dessert you can have for under € 10 with quite generous portions. I often come here for an early lunch and it is mostly beautiful when we can sit outside, talk and enjoy warm weather and food. 

Everything in Dzenita is fantastic, but note something- if you are planning to try out our traditional cevapcici, then please go to specialised restaurant – called cevabdzinica. But if you feel ready to taste some of the great food we Bosnians grew up eating, then Dzenita is the place to be. These dishes are something we all eat at home often, but that doesn’t stop so many locals from stopping by and enjoying the famous barley-veal soup, then some of the meat filled vegetables, grilled or carefully cooked meat.

Lately I’ve noticed a lot of tourists coming to Dzenita, and it must be because of that power of positive word of mouth. It’s authentic food at its best.
