Albanian cuisine is surprisingly good and tasty, a mix of Mediterranean and Balkan traditions, with plenty of fresh fish and produce. Standards are often high, with many members of the Albanian emigrant diaspora returning with years of experience in the catering industries around the world. Dining in Tirana is still affordable and even more upmarket restaurants a main course will not cost too much.
