You’re a vegan in Belgrade? Or you fast in order to comply with the rules of the Orthodox calendar? Having specific eating habits in Belgrade can make you hungry. Worldwide trends of going vegan are luckily starting to see its ways in Belgrade, and we have made a selection of places that have vegan options.
Most of the traditional Serbian restaurants will have an option without meat and dairy products – but this would mean only french fries and grilled vegetables. The options we picked have real vegan dishes. Enjoy!
No need to explain this one. We all love falafel and everything that goes with it. Hummus, tahini and all those perfectly matching salads.
- Hummus Market – Beogradska 66
They offer falafel in two sizes – with two or five balls. They also serve amazing sandwich with french fries, hummus, tahini and all salads that go to falafel sandwich. You could also choose meal salad in bowl – very healthy and nutritious!
- Shawarma Bar – Svetozara Markovića 37
They make thin tortllas with flafel patties. You should go with their spicy, hot sauce, it does burn your mouth but it’s delicious!
- Lebanese restaurant Hanan – Svetogorska 2
Lebanese pita bread with olive oil and all those oriental spices, dipping sauces, fatoush salad with pomegranate, and of course chickpeas in all ways.
