Kilu Sandwich

They say that caviar is an acquired taste. They haven’t tried kilu.

Me and kilu first met at Hell Hunt. And it didn’t go well. As you can see in the video at the bottom of my first Estonian post :-D But, the first thing I did as soon as I got back to Tallinn was to buy kilu. I don’t know why, but my hand just took it from the shelf in Rimi supermarket.

bread & co breakfast serbian food 5 Comments


To have a fried dough for breakfast… After a teaspoon of slatko and a cup of coffee. In Sumrakovac village. Love it! The dough is called mekice, or mekike more often, and slatko is a type of fruit preserve that in Serbia we usually offer to the house guests as soon as they enter the door.
