    Kolonat: Albanian McDonalds

    by Skibbe Written Aug 11, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I actually didn't eat here, I just thought this McDonalds knock off was amusing. I was told that inside its even more McDonalds-esque. Strangely, Albania is a nation without a McDonalds. I'm sure that will be fixed before long and Albanians will get to be just as obese as the rest of us.

    I did go to a couple of good restaurants. One of them was the Skyclub, Vodafone Tower, Rr Deshmoret e 4 Shkurtit. Great views of the city and good food. Their phone number is 04-221666.

    Albanian Recipes

    by Angjel Written Mar 4, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This section contains recipes for Albanian dishes from Albania, Kosova, and other Albanian communities in the Balkans and elsewhere.

    Favorite Dish: Soups
    Sup‘ qengji me majdanoz
    Lamb soup with parsley
    Cut 1/2 kg (about 18 ounces) of lamb meat in small equal pieces, wash it, put in cold water and let it boil. Once the water has boiled, add salt. When the meat is half cooked, lightly fry a batch of young onions cut in fine pieces and 1 spoon of flour in 2-3 spoons of butter, then add 2 to 3 batches of parsley, also cut very fine. Add the fried things to the soup. Continue to boil the soup, at the end serve it with 1-2 boiled eggs and 3-4 spoons of yogurt.
    Sallat‘ me speca t‘ mbushur
    Salad with filled peppers
    Roast long peppers (they must have a straight shape), peel them, lie them down lengthly and remove the seeds. Seperately roast eggplants, roast well, add garlic, salt and oil. With this mass fill the inner part of the peppers, which you then must place on the salad plate and sprinkle with a little bit of oil and finely cut parsley. You embellish the plate by adding thin circle-cut tomatoes.
    Main Course
    Boiled trout
    Take 1/2 kg (about 18 ounces) of clean trout, 1 cup of vinegar, salt, 1/2 batch of parsley, 2 spoons of butter. Leave the fish in vinegar for about 15 minutes, then take it out and place in a pot containing 2 cups of water, salt and a spoon of vinegar. After the trout has been boiled, place on a platter and sprinkle from above with melted butter, thinly cut parsley and lemon juice.

    Angjelos International Food: Authentic Albanian Cuisine

    by Angjel Updated Mar 4, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This section contains recipes for Albanian dishes from Albania, Kosova, and other Albanian communities in the Balkans and elsewhere.

    Cooking Recipes in English
    Albania has been under the domination of different empires: from the Greeks and Roman in antiquity, to more recently, the Ottomans. Albanian food has been heavily influenced by all of these conquerors, as well as by their neighbors. Indeed, many of the recipes I write were modified versions of Middle Eastern/Mediterranean Staples: qofte (savory meatballs fried or grilled), dolma (stuffed grape leaves) and baklava among them. Greek-influenced stuffed vegetables are also quite common as are Turkish-inspired meat-filled-pastries. As in most countries, Albanian food used to vary considerably from region to region. It seems, however, that during communist times the food has become more homogenized, as well as lightened - though it continues to rely heavily in the use of oil.

    Manger à l'albanaise

    by CliffClaven Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you hunt the backstreets of Paris or New York, you'll undoubtedly find an Albanian restaurant that will feed you adequately. Old Cliffie recalls trudging the streets of Prizren in Albanian-speaking Kosovo, peering into one smoke-filled room after another, before ending up with a bowl of greasy bone soup. But after a bottle of the local rakija, who cares what the food tastes like!?

    This is quite a new building set on the side of the park in Tirana. Plenty of coffee shops here with seating in and outdoors. A lovely place to sit and people watch.

    Tirana Beer

    by SirRichard Written Sep 7, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I like to taste beers of every country I tried. Here, the national beer is named Tirana, as the capital. It was not the best beer I tried, but is a rather good, though mild, export lager.
