Another taste of the Balkans (Aug. 9 and 10)

August 7, 2008

In St. Louis there’s no shortage of really good Bosnian dining options (my faves include Grbic at 4071 Keokuk and Berix Coffeehouse at 5053 Gravois).  This weekend we’re going to try something a little different … or not.  We’ll be sampling the fare at the 22nd annual SerbFest.  My guess is that it’ll be much the same, although perhaps with different names — witness the Greek gyro vs. Turkish doner.  Actually, Bosnian cuisine shares that same dish, appearing on menus locally as gyro, but it also includes many other rich soups, stews, grilled meats and pastas.  And the desserts!!  You simply can’t go wrong.

The fest is at Holy Trinity S.E.O. Church, 1910 Serbian Drive, just off Interstate 44 and Jefferson.  It runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday (Aug. 9) and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday (Aug. 10).  Besides the food, there’ll be traditional music and dancing and church tours.  Admission is free; call 314.776.3262 for details.
