Grilled vegetables are popular in Albania as well as in the rest of the Balkan countries. Eggplants, zucchini, onions, peppers, tomatoes, and so on, used as appetizers or accompaniments of main dishes. If you love to eat vegetarian, don’t worry, even in the grill houses, you’ll find perime ne zgare.

Fish
Located right on the Sea, Albania is famous for its seafood. In the restaurants located along the coast and in the main towns through the Riviera, such as Vlora and Saranda, you can eat fresh, excellent fish.

Trilece
Another excellent cake well known in Albania is trilece. The word comes from Spanish and means “cake made with three kinds of milk”; indeed, trilece is prepared with milk, cream, and concentrated milk. Calling it “delicious” is not enough.
