The Macedonian traditional food is probably one of the best in the Balkans. Here you can find the list with the top 10 dishes that you must try. In the Macedonian cuisine you can find food for each taste, almost all of these traditional specialties can have also a vegetarian/vegan version. The Macedonian food is mostly based on meat and vegetables. One very important thing regarding our fruit and vegetable is that they have a very natural taste. Another interesting thing that we have in here and it is connected to the baked beans, is that we eat baked beans every Friday, so in almost every family the Friday lunch most of the time is baked beans 🙂
