Manufaktura

Manufaktura. Toliko u poslednje vreme slušam o ovom restoranu. Neko ga obožava i hvali na sva usta, neko se žali na lošu uslugu i male porcije, nekom je klopa vrh, nekom nije.. Pa daj, da ode i Gastro policija i da da svoj sud o čuvenom restoranu Manufaktura.

Restoran se nalazi u mom kraju, u Starom gradu, u Kralja Petra, te ga ja otkad se otvorio doživljavam kao lokalni restoran, pa verovatno zbog toga nisam nešto bila ni zagrejana da odem. Reših jedno veče sa drugaricom da odem na pićence i večeru, bez rezervacije. Kakva greška!! Utorak veče, bašta krcata. Stojimo mi tako na sred bašte, ni hostesa ni konobari, niko da priđe da nam pomogne da se smestimo. Posle nekih pet minuta tako šetkanja (jer i ako nema mesta, Gastro policija ne odustaje tako lako), prilazi nam hostesa sa idejom da nas smesti za neki minijaturni sto gde jedva dve čaše mogu da stanu, a kamoli večera. Posle nekog vremena snimim sama sto koji je unutar restorana ali odmah pored otvorenog dela, te se najzad smestimo. Prvi zaključak - hostesa neprofesionalna. Idemo dalje. 

Manufaktura - enterijer

Restoran je u industrijskom stilu. Autentičan, sa drvenim policama sa strane na kojoj su namirnice. U jednom delu restorana vise butkice i pršuta, zaista zanimljiv koncept. Imate utisak kao da ste u nekom velikom špajzu. Fensi špajzu, što bih ja rekla. Bašta je u skladu sa unutrašnjim delom, sa drvenim stolovima i stolicama, ponekim drvenim buretom i slatkim malim jastucima. A iznad vas vise stotine crvenih kišobrana. Originalno, nema šta!

Manufaktura - eksterijer

Da vidimo kakva je usluga, pošto sam se na neljubaznost već spremila što zbog pogubljene hostese što zbog komentara koje sam čitala na njihovoj fejsbuk stranici. Pošto izvesno vreme niko nije prilazio stolu, same smo uzele meni. Ok, cene su smešne, preniske, samim tim očekujete i smešno male porcije. O, pojavljuje se i konobar! Za divno čudo preeeljubazan, nasmejan, posvetio nam je dosta pažnje objašnjavajući kakvi su koji ćevapi, ima li priloga, i sve ostalo što nas je zanimalo.  Drugi zaključak - konobar za čistu desetku!!


Manufaktura


Naručujemo pazarske i leskovačke ćevape, srpsku salatu i točeni Heineken. Usluga je bila brza, zaista smo čekale onoliko vremena koliko i treba da se sve to pripremi. Ok, prvi utisak je bio da su porcije zaista premale. Po pet ćevapa serviranih vrlo originalno sa prženim krompirom i hleb serviran u situ (što me je zaista oduševilo, jer nije bitan samo ukus, bitno je i kako je sve to servirano pred gosta) odaje mi utisak da ću pojesti sve za par minuta i ostati gladna, međutim pogrešila sam. Zaista mi je bilo dovoljno. Zajedno sa salatom i preukusnim hlebom ovo je jedan normalan obrok. Još da smo uzele neko predjelo, pošto zaista imaju preveliki izbor sireva, suhomesnatog i ostalih domaćinskih proizvoda, još bismo se i prejele. Pa da smo posle predjela prvo pojele po čorbicu obrok bi bio i više nego korektan. Tako da sledeći put kad budemo otišle na večeru u Manufakturu, krenućemo po redu. Jer to i jeste princip ovog restorana. Više manjih porcija i dobijate kompletan i raznovrstan obrok za uživanje. Da ne zaboravim, ćevapčići su bili mali, sočni i preukusni. Tope se u ustima. Uživala sam!! Onaj ko kaže da mu klopa u Manufakturi nije ništa posebno, taj vas laže!! Hrana je predivna, jedva čekam da ponovo odem da probam i ta predjela i čorbicu.


Leskovački ćevapčići


Što se tiče atmosfere i ljudi koji dolaze na ovo mesto, zaista je šarenoliko. Veselo, prepuno, puno graje, mladih, starih, parova, ma svega ima. Manufaktura zaista spaja sve generacije. Račun smo malo duže čekale, ali posle sjajne klope i dobrog piva, ništa vas više ne može iznervirati. 

Manufakturu od srca preporučujem svima koji nisu bili da posete. Ja ću svakako ići ponovo, samo što ću ovoga puta prvo da rezervišem, jer želim da osetim tu atmosferu u bašti koja odiše životom.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________


Manufaktura. I hear about this restaurant so much lately. Someone worships and praises it, someone complains about the poor service and small portions, someone loves the food, some not .. So, let the Gastro police check this place and make a judgment about the famous restaurant Manufaktura.

The restaurant is located in my neighborhood, in the Municipality of Stari grad, in Kralja Petra street, so ever since it opened I think of it as a local restaurant, and that’s probably why I wasn’t too excited to go there. So one evening, I decided to go for a drink and dinner with a friend, without making a reservation. What a mistake !! Tuesday night, restaurant’s garden is packed. We are standing in the middle of the garden, not the hostess nor the waiters, nobody came over to help us find a table. After about five minutes of walking in circles (because even if there is no free tables, Gastro police do not give up so easily), the hostess approached us with the idea to put us on a tiny table where barely two cups can stand, let alone dinner. After a while I find a table by myself, that is inside the restaurant but next to the open area, and we finally settle. The first conclusion - hostess unprofessional. Moving on.

Manufaktura - interior
The style of the restaurant is industrial. Authentic, with wooden shelves on the side where the groceries are placed. In one part of the restaurant hams and prosciutto are hanging, a really interesting concept. You feel like you're in a large pantry. Fancy pantry, I would say. The garden is in accordance with interior, with wooden tables and chairs, occasional wooden barrel and cute little pillows. A over our heads hundreds of red umbrellas. Original, indeed!


Manufaktura - exterior

Let's see what the service is like, since I was already prepared to unkindness because of the undone hostess and because of the comments that I read on their Facebook page.Since some time no one approached the table, we took the menu by ourselves. Ok, the prices are ridiculous, too low, and therefore you expect small portions. Oh, here comes the  waiter! Miraculously polite, smiling, he devoted a lot of attention to us explaining each kind of  kebabs, side dishes, and everything else we wanted.The second conclusion – the waiter gets an A+!!

Manufaktura

We order Pazar kebabs and Leskovac kebabs, Serbian salad and draught Heineken beer. The service was fast, we waited just as long as it needs to get it all cooked. Ok, the first impression was that the portions are really small.  Five kebabs served with fried potatoes and bread served in old wooden sieve (which really impressed me, because it is not only about the taste, it is also important how it is all served to the guests), it gives me the impression that I would eat everything in a few minutes and stay hungry, but I was wrong. It really was enough. Together with salad and delicious bread this is one normal meal. If we had taken a starter, since they  indeed have a large selection of cheeses, dry meats and other homemade products, we would have been gormandized . And if we had a soup after the appetizer it would be more than enough. So next time, when we go here for dinner, we will try everything. Because it is the principle of this restaurant. Several smaller portions and you get a complete and varied meal to enjoy. Not to forget, kebabs were small, juicy and delicious. Melting in your mouth. I enjoyed!! Anyone who says that the food in Manufaktura is nothing special, he is lying to you!! The food is wonderful, can not wait to go back and try those appetizers and soups.

Leskovac kebabs



As for the atmosphere and the people who come to this place, really versatile. Cheerful, crowded, a lot of chatting, young people, elders, couples, everyone.Manufaktura really connects all generations. We waited a little longer for the bill, but after great food and good beer, nothing can upset you.

I heartly recommend Manufaktura to anyone who had not been there. I will definitely go again, only this time I will first make a reservation, because I want to feel the atmosphere of a garden that is full of life.

Love, Gastro police !!

Bajloni

Prijatno i ušuškano su reči koje ćete u startu čuti od mene kad se pomene Bajloni bar. Smešten u centru Beograda, u Cetinjskoj ulici, Bajloni svojim šmekom neodoljivo privlači prolaznike da svrate i uživaju u onome što nudi. 

Kada se odlučite da svratite ovde, prvo ćete zakoračiti u prostranu i lepo, originalno uređenu baštu, a u skladu sa tim da li želite da popijete piće ili jedete, odlučićete da li ćete sesti za veći sto za ručavanje, ili manje stolove gde ćete uživati u piću po vrelom danu, ili za stolove u obliku šanka, koji se nalaze odmah sa desne strane, pri ulazu u baštu. Preko puta tog šanka, ispred vas je gomila stolova pod strehom somersby suncobrana, a ispred njih šank u kom šankeri rade punom parom, tako da je leti bašta pravi bar na otvorenom.  Baš ti drveni stolovi i stolice, pretežno bele i braon boje su ono što daje šarm ovom mestu, jer istovremeno odaju domaćinsku toplinu i spoj običnog, a vrlo originalnog. Enterijer će vas, takođe, kupiti. Kao i u bašti, drveni stolovi i stolice, sa vazama sa cvećem na stolovima, kredencima i starinskim prozorima, sa zanimljivim crtežima po zidovima, poput saksofona, peći, ili starog telefona je nešto što zaista ne može da vam ne izmami osmeh na lice.

Bajloni - eksterijer

Pored takvog ambijenta, kako odoleti i ne probati nešto sa menija? Pre nego što sam ovde došla, pogledala sam meni na njihovom sajtu i bila sam i više nego oduševljena zanimljivim, raznovrsnim menijem. Jedno od jela koje mi je privuko pažnju na sajtu bilo je pileća rolnica sa kafom i kozijim sirom u sosu od višanja i bila sam prilično sigurna da ću to naručiti. Međutim, kad sam pogledala meni na licu mesta, tog, kao i još nekoliko izuzetno zanimljivih jela uopšte nije bilo u jelovniku. Bilo mi je prilično krivo zbog toga, jer se meni na sajtu i u restoranu dosta razlikuju, a od malo egzotičnijih jela u meniju je bila samo hobotnica na puteru sa sokom od pomorandže, što mi je bilo ok, jer sam veliki ljubitelj morskih plodova. Drugarica se posle malo razmišljanja odlučila za ramstek sa začinjenim krompirom, pečurkama i boranijom (1140 rsd), u čemu sam je podržala i rekla da bih verovatno i ja to naručila da ne jedem hobotnicu. Kada je ljubazni konobar prišao i kad mi je rekao da nemaju hobotnicu moram priznati da sam bila razočarana. Pored tako bogatog menija na sajtu i oskudnijeg u restoranu oni čak ni to nemaju... Shodno tome, naručila sam isto što i moja drugarica. Ramstek je bio srednje pečen, baš po mom ukusu, tako da nemam zamerke, moja drugarica voli ipak malo pečenije, tako da su možda eventualno mogli da pitaju kako želimo da bude pečeno, ali ne smatram to za propust, uvek možemo da zamolimo da nam nešto bude manje ili više pečeno, ako želimo. Bio je i ispunjen papričicom, koja je bila ljuta, takođe po mom ukusu, a začinjeni kromiri su isto imali dozu ljutine jer su bili blago začinjeni tucanom paprikom, tako da je uz pečurke i boraniju ovo jelo skroz odgovaralo mom ukusu i zadovoljilo moje čulo ukusa, tako da sam relativno brzo prebolela hobotnicu. Karta pića je veoma raznovrsna, bilo da su u pitanju sokovi, flaširani ili ceđeni, piva, vina, kokteli, itd.

 
Ramstek sa začinjenim krompirom, pečurkama i boranijom

Ekipa je pretežno mlađa, do 35 godina, ima, naravno, i poneko stariji, ali Bajloni ima dozu hipsterskog, što potvrđuje mlađa populacija. Cene pića su pretežno kao i svuda u centru grada, poneke malo jače, ali ništa drastično. Skoro uvek su svi stolovi zauzeti, pa je poželjno rezervisati ako hoćete ovde na ručak ili večeru, a naročito kad im nastupa dj, tada je to prava žurka na otvorenom.

Ono što mogu da izvedem kao zaključak je da ovaj bar definitivno treba posetiti, to će vam zaista biti jedno prijatno iskustvo gde ćete uživati. Samo bih kao sugestiju zamolila menadžment da uskladi meni sa sajta sa menijem u restoranu, kao i da jela koja su u meniju u restoranu, a nema ih, ili nabave, ili sklone sa menija, to je prijateljski savet. Vreme provedeno ovde mi je zaista bilo lepo i rado ću se vratiti, naročito po ovim vrelim, letnjim danima.

___________________________________________________________________________________________


Nice and cozy are the two words that I would use when you mention Bajloni bar. Located in the center of Belgrade, in Cetinjska street, using its charm Bajloni attracts passers-by to stop by and enjoy what it offers.

When you decide to visit this place, you will first step into a spacious and beautiful, originally decorated garden, in accordance with whether you want to drink or eat, you will decide between a larger dining table, or smaller tables where you will enjoy a drink on a hot day, or tables in the form of the bar, which are located immediately to the right, at the entrance to the garden. Across this bar, in front of you is a bunch of tables under the eaves Somersby parasols, a bar in front of them where bartenders work at full speed, so during the summer this garden is a real outdoor bar. Exactly those wooden tables and chairs, predominantly of white and brown colors, are what gives the charm of this place, because at the same time they give homely warmth and blend the ordinary and original together. The interior will also get to you. As in the garden, wooden tables and chairs, with vases with flowers on the tables, cupboards and antique windows, with interesting drawings on the walls, like the saxophone, stoves, or old wire phone is something that really can not fail in making you smile.

Bajloni - interior


In addition to such environment, how to resist and not to try something from the menu? Before I came here, I looked at the menu on their website and I was more than delighted with interesting, varied menu. One of the dishes that caught my eye on the site was The chicken roll with coffee and goat cheese in sour cherry sauce and I was pretty sure I'm going to order that one. However, when I looked at the menu on the spot, that dish wasn`t on it as well as several other very interesting dishes. I felt bad about it, because it believes the menu in the restaurant and the one on the website are quite different, and the only little more exotic dish was Octopus in butter with orange juice, which I was ok with because I am a big fan of seafood. After some thinking, my friend ordered Rump steak with seasoned potatoes, mushrooms and green beans (1140 rsd), I approved her choice and said that I'd probably  order the same if there was no octopus. When the friendly waiter came over and when he told me that they do not have the octopus, I must admit that I was disappointed. Such a rich menu on the web site and slimmer version menu in the restaurant, they do not have this dish as well... Accordingly, I ordered the same thing as my friend. Rump steak was medium rare, exactly according to my taste, so no mistakes there, my friend likes it a little more cooked, so they might have ask us how it should be done, but I do not consider that as a mistake, we can always ask for something to be more or less done, if we want to. There was a bit of hot chili pepper in the steak, which was nice, and seasoned potatoes were also a bit spicy , because they were mildly spiced with grounded hot pepper, so, along with mushrooms and green beans this dish completely suited my taste and satisfied my taste buds so I got over that octopus fairly quickly. Drink list is very diverse, whether it comes to juices, bottled or of fresh fruit, beers, wines, cocktails, etc.

Rump steak with seasoned potatoes, mushrooms and green beans


The guests are mostly young, to 35 years old, there is, of course, someone older, but Bajloni has this hipster dose, which the younger population confirms. Drink prices are mainly as everywhere in the city center, some little higher, but nothing drastic. All the tables are almost always occupied, so it is advisable to make a reservation if you want to come here for lunch or dinner, especially when there is a DJ show, then there is the real outdoor party in here.
 

What I can conclude is that this bar is definitely worth visiting, it will truly be an experience where you will enjoy. I'd just, as a suggestion, ask the management to align the menu from the website with the menu in a restaurant, and about the dishes that are on the menu at a restaurant, but there do not have them actually, either purchase them or take them off the menu, it's friendly advice. Time spent here was really nice and I'll happily come back, especially on these hot, summer days.

Korzo

Leti su noći najlepše. Još kada ih podelite sa sebi dragom osobom, uz hranu i piće, zadovoljstvo se udvostručuje. Ovoga puta rešila sam da uživam svim čulima, te sam iz tog razloga rezervisala splav Korzo. Moram da naglasim da sam prilikom rezervacije bila oduševljena ljubaznošću. Gospodin sa druge strane žice mi je lepo objasnio da petkom i subotom nastupa DJ, i pitao da li će mi to smetati dok večeram. Naravno da neće. To će mi upotpuniti doživljaj.

Splav Korzo nalazi se na Savskom keju, i jednostavno je nemoguće ne primetiti ga. Kao biser u školjki, izdvaja se iz okoline. Okupan pravim letnjim bojama, belom i bež, sa palmama, daje vam osećaj kao da ste negde na Jadranu. Sav je od stakla, i jedini je splav koji nema zidove na Savskom keju. Ima dve terase, na donjem i gornjem splavu. 

Splav Korzo

Na samom ulasku na splav, moram priznati da sam bila malo šokirana osobom koja me je sačekala. Bez pozdrava, i upita da li imam rezervaciju, čovek je počeo da vergla kako nema mesta, eventualno jedan sto, te da ga nisam prekinula u sred rečenice sa rečima da sam rezervisala, pitanje je koliko bi on još pričao. Međutim kada nas je odveo do stola na gornjem spratu koji je bio savršen, cela nesuglisica pre toga činila mi se nebitnom. Pogled sa visine na reku je bio fantastičan.

Splav Korzo - terasa


Nakon što smo se smestili, red je došao na meni. Moram da naglasim da se cene u meniju razlikuju u odnosu na cene na sajtu, za nekih 50 rsd. Restoran je internacionalnog karaktera, meni je šarenolik i egzotičan, za svakog po nešto. Kompletan meni možete pogledati na sajtu splava Korzo, koji je zaista jedan od bolje urađenih sajtova (ako izuzmemo razlike u ceni koje treba prepraviti). Što se tiče izbora pića, ne zaostaje za hranom. Ja sam bila posebno oduševljena što imaju jedno od mojih omiljenih vina - Radovanović rose. 

Kada je osoblje u pitanju, mnogi su mi rekli kako su ovde svi uvek nasmejani i preljubazni. Ja baš nisam stekla takav utisak. Naš konobar je bio smrknut (oke, kapiram da je vrućina, i da je teško da se radi, ali malo osmeha nije na odmet). Jedva mi je objasnio kada sam ga pitala kako se servira sos uz jelo (pošto na kraju menija imate spisak sosova koje možete da dodate svom jelu, pa mi nije bilo jasno da li se jelo sprema zajedno sa tim sosom, ili se sos dodaje naknadno), tako da definitivno sam nailazila na mnooogo ljubaznije osoblje. Elem, mi smo se na kraju odlučili za Piletinu u kori od slanine ( sa sosom od šumskog voća) i Njoke sa biftekom i tri vrste pečuraka. Kada smo dobili jela, što naš narod kaže, bila su "ki upisana". Sve pohvale za kuvara!!

Piletina u kori od slanine sa sosom od šumskog voća


Njoke sa biftekom i tri vrste pečuraka

Što se tiče cena, malo su više, ali zaista imate potpuni užitak. Večera, vince, talasi i otvoreno nebo - vredi svaku paru.

Za dobru atmosferu zadužen je DJ, te u skladu sa tim, preko dana ovde možete očekivati nešto malo stariju, a uveče mlađu populaciju. Ali opet, ni to nije pravilo, najbitnije kako se neko oseća u duši.

Splav Korzo - uveče

Pa da zaključimo - ovo je zaista po meni najlepši splav na Savskom keju i sa velikim ushićenjem ću ga svima preporučiti, što zbog klope, što zbog pogleda. Pa ukoliko želite da jedan dan provede na moru, ne morate da odlazite iz Bg-a, samo dođite na Korzo.

Nights are the most beautiful during summer,. And when you share them with loved ones, along with food and drinks, the pleasure is doubled. This time I decided to enjoy with all of my senses, and for this reason I made a reservation at floating raft Corso. I must emphasize that during the call, I was thrilled with their courtesy. A gentleman on the other side of the telephone, nicely explained that on Fridays and Saturdays they have DJ performances, and he asked me whether that would bother me during dinner. Of course not. That will complete my experience.

Floating raft Corso is located on the Sava quay, and it is simply impossible not to notice it. As a pearl in seashell, it stands out from the environment. Like bathed in  natural summer colors, white and beige, with palm trees, gives you a feeling like you are somewhere on the Adriatic sea. Made completely of glass, and it is the only floating raft on the Sava quay that has no walls. It has two terraces, one in the lower and one in the upper level.
  
Floating raft Corso



At the entrance, I have to admit I was a little shocked by the person who greeted me. Without saying hello, or asking if I had a reservation, the man started talking that there was no place left in the restaurant, maybe just one table, and if I did not interrupt him in a mid-sentence by saying that I have made a reservation for a table, the question is how long he would have kept talking. However, when he escorted us to a table on the top floor, which was perfect, whole previous misunderstanding seemed irrelevant. The view of the river was fantastic.

Floating raft Corso - terrace


After we got settled, it was time to look at the menu. I must emphasize that the prices on the menu are different as compared to the prices on the website, for about 50 RSD. The restaurant is of an international character, the menu is colorful and exotic, there is something for everyone. A complete menu can be found on the website of Corso, which is really one of the better websites (with the exception of the differences in prices that needs to be updated). Regarding the choice of drinks, it does not fall behind the food choice. I was especially thrilled about them having one of my favorite wines - Radovanovic rose wine.

When it comes to the staff, many have told me that everyone here is always smiling and that they are too kind. I just did not get that impression. Our waiter was depressed (ok, I get that that day it was very hot, and it is hard to work, but a little smile does not hurt). When I asked him how the sauce is served  with the meal (because at the end of the menu you have a list of sauces that you can add to your food, but it was not clear whether the dish allready comes with the sauce or it is added later) , he had some trouble explaining me, so I definitely encountered more polite staff. Anyway, we finally decided to order Chicken in bacon (with forest fruit sauce) and Gnocchi with steak and three kinds of mushrooms.When we got the dishes, they were picture perfect.  Bravo to the chef !!

Chicken in bacon crust with forest fruit sauce

Gnocchi with steak and three kinds of mushrooms


As for the prices, they are a little higher, but you really get a complete pleasure. Dinner, wine, waves and the open sky - it's worth every penny.

DJ is in charge of the good atmosphere, and accordingly, during the daytime, here you can expect a bit older crowd, and in the evening the younger population. But again, that's not a rule, most important is how one feels in his soul.


Floating raft Corso - at night


The conclusion - in my opinion, this is truly the most beautiful floating raft restaurant on the Sava quay and with great enthusiasm I recommend it to everyone, both for the food and the view. So if you want to spend a day at a seaside, you do not have to leave Belgrade, just come to Corso.

Kaldi

Moderno i izuzetno opuštajuće - to su dve reči kojima bih opisala još jedan u nizu super mesta na Novom Beogradu, tj. Kaldi! Smešten u egzotičnom delu NBG-a, između Merkatora i Arene, ovaj gastro bar mami i svojom lokacijom i onim što se nudi u njemu.

Kaldi

Ono što je u meni prvi put probudilo želju da dođem ovde bila je veoma lepa bašta sa palmama, koje su u par navrata učinile da se osećam kao da sam na moru. Posle kraćeg razmišljanja da li sesti u baštu ili unutra, odlučile smo da se smestimo za sto pored prozora. Enterijer nikako ne zaostaje za eksterijerom. Prostran i lepo uređen šank svakako će vam privući pažnju i ostaviti na vas utisak velike urednosti, a kada sednete u izuzetno udobne i prostrane stolice ili fotelje, jedino što posle toga treba da uradite je da lepo pogledate kartu pića i meni i uživate i vizuelno i u dobrim ukusima.

Nije mi bilo lako da odlučim šta da jedem. Meni je internacionalnog karaktera (detaljan meni imate na njihovom sajtu) tako da sam više puta listala. Drugarica se lako odlučila za beef burger (juneće meso, džem od luka, paradajz, iceberg, gauda, aromatični krompirići, barbecue sos), ali zato sam ja bila na teškim mukama, s obzirom da sam tog dana pravila pauzu od dijete. Posle mnooogooo razmišljanja i premišljanja, odluka je konačno pala na ramstek u blue cheese sosu (ramstek, orasi, šampinjoni, plavi sir, puter, bundeva, cimet), međutim, ljubazni konobar je rekao da trenutno nemaju bundevu i ponudio da mi umesto nje stave pire od celera, što mi nimalo nije smetalo i nije pokvarilo opšti utisak o jelu. Ramstek je bio lepo pečen, a svi ovi dodaci su ga učinili dodatno ukusnim i time ga stavili na listu jela koja obavezno morate da probate, ako ste ljubitelj mesa. Kako pauza od dijete zna često da izmakne kontroli, morala sam da probam i burger svoje drugarice i bila sam oduševljena - preukusni, sa lepo prženim i svežim mesom, uz barbecue sos koji daje finu slatkastu notu i super pomfrit, uverila sam se da su čula moje drugarice zadovoljena isto koliko i moja. Pijuckanje erdingera samo je doprinelo našem uživanju.

Ekipa se sastoji pretežno od mlađe i srednje generacije, mada ima i dece i starijih osoba, što potvrđuje kvalitet Kaldija, kao i svih dobrih mesta, uostalom, a korektne cene takođe ukazuju na to da ovde mnogi sebi mogu da priušte izlazak.

Jedino što bih izdvojila kao manu je što iz jednog dela restorana imate pogled na veliki Maxi preko puta, što, složićemo se, nam nije želja kad odemo u restoran, ali pošto je to jedina mana, smatraću da nema manu, jer ipak ne mogu oni da utiču na to šta će da se nalazi pored njih. Uvek možete da sednete u baštu, ili pored prozora, gde ćete imati pogled na šetalište, tako da Maxi nećete ni primetiti.

Na kraju mogu samo da zaključim da je Kaldi mesto koje vredi posetiti i da ću im sigurno opet biti gost, samo neka tako nastave i posao će im još više cvetati, a verujem da su i oni svesni svojih kvaliteta, ja ih samo potvrđujem.

Modern and extremely relaxing - these are the two words to describe yet another great restaurant in New Belgrade, ie. Kaldi! Located in the exotic part of NBG's, between Mercator and Arena, this gastro bar lures us with its location and with what it’s offering.

Kaldi

The first thing that evoked my desire to visit this place was a very beautiful garden with palm trees, which have made ​​me feel like I was by the sea, on several occasions.
 After some thinking whether to sit in the garden or inside, we decided to sit at the table by the window. The interior does not fall behind the exterior. Spacious and beautifully decorated bar will definitely attract your attention by its great neatness, and when you sit in a very comfortable and spacious chairs or armchairs, the only thing you need to do then is to peruse the drink list and the menu, and enjoy in the view and tasty food.

It was not easy to decide what to eat. The menu is of an international character (you have detailed menu on their website) so I looked it several times. My friend easily decided for a Beef burger (beef, onion jam, tomato, iceberg, gouda, aromatic potatoes, BBQ sauce), but I was in torment, since that day I paused my restricted diet. After a lot of thinking and deliberation, the decision was finally made, I chose the Rump steak in blue cheese sauce (rump steak, walnuts, mushrooms, blue cheese, butter, pumpkin, cinnamon), however, the kind waiter said that currently they do not have a pumpkin and he offered me that instead of it they serve me some celery  puree, which I did not mind at all and it did not spoil the overall impression of the meal. Rump steak was nicely cooked, and all of these added ingredients have made ​​it extra delicious and thereby this dish was added on the list of dishes that you must try if you love meat. As a break from my restrected diet can often get out of control, I had to try the burger of my friend, and I was thrilled - delicious, with a nicely roasted, fresh meat with BBQ sauce, which gives a nice sweet note, and tasty fries, I was assured that the palate of my friend was satisfied just like mine. Sipping Erdinger beer only contributed to our enjoyment.

The guests are mainly of young and middle generation, but there are also children and the elderly, which confirms the quality of Kaldi, like of every good restaurant, after all, and normal and fair prices also suggest that many can afford to visit this place.

The only thing I would single out as a disadvantage is that from one part of the restaurant you have a view of a big local supermarket Maxi, which is across the street, and that, you will agree, we do not want to look when we go to the restaurant, but since this is the only drawback, I'll consider that there is no flaws, because they still can not choose what will be located next to them. You can always sit in the garden or by the window, where you have a view on the park, so you won’t even notice the supermarket.

In the end, I can only conclude that Kaldi is a place worth a visit and I will definetely be their guest again, if they continue like this, their business will flourish even more, and I believe that they are aware of their qualities, I am just acknowledging them.

Love, Gastro police !!
