    Pekara Crmnica: The BEST Borekas we tasted yet!

    by budapest8 Written Sep 12, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After the majority of places geared to you
    spending €10 to €15 for a sit down meal upwards
    unless you want post cards, local nick nack touristy
    paraphenelia like painted plates,
    pictures etc
    Then this small bakery run by a chap from Kosovo is
    a real welcome and he is really friendly, unlike some of
    the sour puss faces I saw on some other shop keepers.
    He baked everything in the back and even invited me to
    see all the baking machinery and ovens. For the usual
    price of €1 you can get either a cheese or meat boreka,
    but his were much bigger and tastier than those I had in Ulcinj.
    I mean the ones in Ulcinj were tasty, but these were even better..
    He had also a large selection of rolls and bread which I bought
    a varied selection. I suggested he make fresh pizza and he would do a roaring trade,
    but suspect this would interfere with his position in the town, it would
    drain off customers from some of the towns restaurants.
    There were tables outside but belonged to the restaurant
    next door and shame he probably
    wasn't allowed a table or 2,
    would have made the perfect place to eat some
    burek and drink a turkish coffee.

    What to buy:

    Burek is regularly available at most bakeries, and usually eaten as
    "fast food". It is often consumed with yoghurt.
    Apart from being sold at bakeries, burek is served in specialized stores
    selling burek (or pitas) and yogurt exclusively (Buregdžinica).

    What to pay:
    bread rolls can cost as little as €0.10 to €0.50,
    Burekas or Burek usually cost €1 and bread about the same
    or less.

    Not that I would fancy my chances
    in some life threatening situation,
    here is the phone number for the
    ambulance in Virpazar.
    Hopefully one would be taken to
    Podgarica and not Bar.

  • Impressive Monument

    At the southern entrance into Virpazar, stands an impressive 15-20 meters high rock that is topped by the remains of a defense tower. On the tower has been built a statue to honor the memory of the partisans. Two carved slabs are fixed in the rock. The left one was sealed on July 13th 1964 "to honor the memories of our sons and daughters that freed...

  • Fountain

    In the middle of the square, a fountain bears the head of four lions. I suppose that at some time, water flew freely from the mouth of each lion into the basins. That was not the case any more but on one of them, a tap allowed, nevertheless to get water.

  • Fishes !

    Skadar lake is also the home of eels (Anguilla anguilla), carp (Cyprinus carpio), pike (Esox lucius), perch (Perca fluviatilis) roach (Rutilus rutilus). This photo of the bucket that a fisherman was bringing home shows on top 2 carps, on the right 2 perches and far right and far left 2 roaches.
