Balkan pljeskavica

Pljeskavica is a popular dish in the Balkans, made from ground meat. It is similar to a hamburger or a meat patty, but it is usually larger and more flavorful, as onion and herbs with a strong and aromatic taste are used to season the meat. Pljeskavica is grilled or fried in a pan until it is perfectly cooked.

One of the things that make pljeskavica so tasty is the mix of meat types used. The combination of beef, pork, and lamb provides a perfect balance of flavors and textures. The spices used in the dish give the meat an interesting taste, while breadcrumbs help bind everything together and give the patty a crispy surface.

A great feature of pljeskavica is its versatility. It can be served as a standalone dish with a side or used as a filling for sandwiches or burgers.

Balkan pljeskavica

I had a gourmet version of pljeskavica with bacon and cheese at my favorite restaurant Staria Chinar in Varna. One perfectly cooked portion with an incredible taste and a bowl of homemade ljutenitsa cost 12.5 BGN, which is approximately 6 EUR.

If you haven’t tried pljeskavica in Bulgaria yet, make sure to do so. You won’t regret it!

Accommodation Varna
You can get great accommodation at a fantastic price at the Bolero Suites, just a short distance from the center of Varna. The rooms are clean, and it's quiet at night. Excellent value for your money. Additionally, you'll be just a stone's throw away from the excellent restaurant Staria Chinar! I stayed there last in October 2022 and was very satisfied.
