My work brings me to Serbia these days.
I would like to share with you my impressions after visiting the Pasha restaurant in the city of Novi Sad.
The restaurant is next to the tennis court of Dunavski Park, a beautiful small park 100 meters from the Dunau River.
The clientele is mostly locals who have the money to pay for a rather expensive by local standards meal.
The fried green pepper is juicy and with loads of garlic.
The salmon is lightly marinated in lemon and dill and served as carpaccio. Good, but not exceptional, I would like it to have more flavour.
The beef carpaccio is exceptional, the visit to Pasha is justified by it alone.
The beef tortellini that I tasted were rather bland, while the four cheese sauce was so overpowering that any trace of taste left in the tortellini was lost in the battle against the cheeses! I do not comment on the use of the work tortellini, as the picture reveals them to be tortelli in the best case!
The most appealing feature of the restaurant for me is that I can have a decent glass of local wine. As an example, I want to mention Harizma of 2007, by the Aleksandrovic Winery http://www.podrumaleksandrovic.co.yu/about_us.shtml.
It is powerful Chardonnay with very rich bouquet. I tasted the 2007 wine and it was brilliant!
