Traditional Macedonian Food
We highly recommend you to try traditional Macedonian food in a kafana (local traditional restaurant) while you are visiting the country. In Skopje there are lots of options to choose from. Here are our well tested favorites:
Their garlic paste dip (makalo) served with cheese filled crust is absolutely delicious. Many locals come here in the mornings especially to eat chorba which is a traditional Macedonian soup/stew. Can be made with beef, chicken or fish.
