A visit to Sarajevo wouldn’t be complete without trying some traditional Sarajevo pita (pie), which is prepared according to original family recipes at Oklagija Buregdžinica.
You can find several kinds of pita at this eatery, from the must-try burek (meat pie), krompiruša (potato pie), sirnica (cheese pie) and zeljanica (spinach pie), to buredžici, tikvenica, kljukuša, etc. Oklagija’s specialty is heljdopita, pie made from buckwheat flour, four kinds of cheeses, locally produced eggs, sour cream and kajmak (rich cream cheese). There are also a few varieties of pita that are made from whole-wheat flour.
In Sarajevo, pita is usually eaten plain, without any toppings, and it’s good to have some yoghurt with your meal. We make special mention of ayran, a salty yoghurt drink.
Oklagija has two floors and the interior has old Bosnian motifs, such as traditional seating units, carpets and stools that complement the wooden elements. Come and see for yourself why the top floor is so special.
