Happy Valentine’s Day! Here is it is Sveti (Saint) Trifun’s day. He is the saint of wine. I think these two holidays go well together. Somewhere, an Ompah band is belting out in celebration.
This year I doubt we will do much to celebrate but a few years back here in Serbia we had a nice night out. The food was spectacular and the wine made into a drink called bambus was wonderful.
I had to share a picture of the wine I had with my meal. Medveda Krv or blood of the bear is the name of the wine. It was very nice. I mixed it with Coke, half and half. This is called Bambus. Don’t knock it til you try it.
Kod Sasha’s was the name of the little place we ate. Literally translated, it means “at Sasha’s”. The owner waited on us, and the food was exquisite. We had salad, two main courses, wine, beer and coffee. All this cost the same as two Combo meals at McDonald’s back home. There was home-made bread and cheeses and even home-made horseradish. Oh my, I was stuffed as a turkey on Thanksgiving.
If you are ever in Knjazevac this is the place to go! Sasha’s has won several awards for its food. The decor of the place is antique Serbian. The service was great and the food was nothing less than amazing. Before we left, the owner said he had a dish made of cows tail. Sounds really interesting and I am anxious to give it a try next time.
