ČardakAnother quality restaurant on one of the most bustling little streets in Skopje, the waiters here must run the equivalent of a marathon on Friday and Saturday evenings such is the popularity of this place and the top notch food that’s prepared in the kitchen. The excellent grilled meat is served on wooden boards to add to the general rustic theme of the place and there’s regular live music featuring a range of usually very good and entertaining musicians. It was founded in 1963, it takes back in time with its delicious traditional food and pleasant music. They are especially famous for their traditional pies.
A timeless Debar Maalo favourite combining the very best qualities of traditional Macedonian cuisine and modern culinary practices, this is one of our favourite places for emptying our wallets and filling our stomachs in Skopje. The menu is heavy on grilled meat dishes, although there’s plenty of other options available to keep all diners happy. If you happen to be reading this and spring is in the air, we recommend their terrace complete with sweet-smelling flowers.
