Das ist Valter Restaurant serves typical Bosnian food such as ćevapi (grilled minced meat) that is normally eaten with lepinja flatbread, onion and ajvar (red pepper sauce).
This restaurant that is located in Radovljica is a sophisticated fast food restaurant.
They also offer typical Bosnian desserts such as baklava and Bosnian coffee that is served in a pot called džezva.
OUR ORDER: The menu board with pictures next to the restaurant was inviting passers-by to have some typical dishes of Balkan origin, such as ćevapi’, ‘pleskavica’ (meat patty), different kinds of pies, spoon dishes composed of beans (‘prebranec’, ‘kondor’), ‘šopska’ salad and some desserts (‘balkava’).
We decided to have some ćevapi that originated in the Balkans and are still widely eaten in the countries that used to form Yugoslavia (Slovenia and Bosnia were part of it).
In some countries, they make ćevapi of different types of meat (beef and pork) while in Bosnia they only use beef.
OUR EXPERIENCE: The food came promptly. Apart from ćevapi – that were soft and as greasy as they should be – we also had the following dishes: sudžukica sausage that tasted delicious (but different as typical Slovenian sausages), spinach pie (that comes with yogurt) and roasted bell peppers.
The spinach pie which is called ‘zeljanica’ was tasteful (it is very filling, therefore, you are supposed to drink yogurt with it) while roasted bell peppers were a good alternative to salad.
After finishing the main course, we decided to have a dessert. You can choose from three different desserts while the majority of them includes nuts.
We went for baklava, a very rich pastry made of layers and filled with nuts that would be normally served in Bosnia on special occasions.
CONCLUSION: Even though the selection on the menu is not wide, you will for sure find something for yourself if you have craving for some Balkan food. If you have not eaten any food of Balkan origin yet, then beef ćevapi is an excellent choice.
If you are very hungry, you can order bigger portion of ćevapi (called desetka) with ten pieces, or go for petka that is composed of five ćevapi if a smaller portion is enough for you. In any case, do not forget to order ajvar with it as only like that your eating experience will be as authentic as possible.
