- In Bosnia, a country where minced meat in the form of burek or ćevapčići is elevated to the status of a national symbol, it can be extremely hard to be a vegetarian. Sarajevo's Karuzo Restaurant is so far the only veggie joint in town and probably in the whole country. The interior of the restaurant resembles the inside of a boat, decorated with helm, old maps, paddles, compasses and fish nets. The atmosphere is so cozy and realistic, that it looks as if the Captain will come in any moment from the 'deck', in fact a small garden outside the restaurant. All the decorations originate from Cavtat, a small coastal town further south from Dubrovnik. A keen health food fanatic, the owner, Saša Obućina invested his own passion and lifestyle into the restaurant, where he also does most of the cooking. He says he prefers a combination of vegetarian, macrobiotic and Mediterranean cuisine, while at Karuzo Restaurant he also offers fish, most notably sushi. The original vegetarian menu includes many house specialties but the owner recommends: pancakes filled with chick peas and other vegetables in Tahini (sesame paste) sauce, as well as Tofu Risotto. The cooks in Karuzo Restaurant use only whole grain flour, sea salt and brown sugar, for their recipes, and both pizza and pancakes, are made from rye flour. Type of Food: Lacto, Vegan-friendly, Beer/Wine, Mediterranean, Fish, Sushi, pizza... - No meat or eggs.
