Macedonian cuisine is unique in its mixture of different cultures. It is based on a Balkan diet (predominantly using meat and vegetables), but with a Mediterranean and slight oriental influence. Below you can find some of the traditional specialties from Macedonia that will tickle anyone’s taste buds.
Musaka is a layered dish, mainly consisting of sliced potatoes. In between each tender and ooey-gooey layer lies a bed full of eggplant, onion, ground meat and an assortment of veggies. The top layer is usually finished with a beautiful egg-yolk glaze, giving it a wonderfully golden colour and crispy texture.
Pastrmajlija is an oval shaped fried dough pie. Pastrmajlija is usually topped with salted, cubed meat.
Kebapi, similar to what we all know and love as sausages, are grilled minced meat composed into the shape of a sausage. Onions, vegeta (which is a very popular mixture of Macedonian herbs) and paprika are what give this dish its savoury flavour. Kebapi are usually served with freshly baked flatbread and kajmak.
