Below are some of the cuisines that you shouldn’t miss to savor in your Bosnia tour.

Meatballs are cooked by frying, backing, steaming, or even braising in sauce. There are many types of meatballs using different types of meats and spices.
Don’t think I have forgotten “p” between “a” and “h” in this word to make the word ‘graph’, no! Grah is a type of food loved by many locals and travelers who visit Bosnia & Herzegovina. This flavorful, tradition hearty soup is made from dried beans stew with meat and it’s very yummy.
Popara is bread soaked in boiling milk or water and spread with kajmak (a creamy daily product). Sometimes back Popara was viewed as a traditional kids’ breakfast meal but today many people have embraced it due to its health effectiveness.
