Although Montenegrin specialities vary according to region there are some key traditional dishes to try, perhaps one of the better-known being, Kacamak . Kacamak is a weighty dish consisting of mashed potatoes, wheat and corn flour, served with cheese and milk, and is a popular dish among Montenegrins. It is seen as a great source of energy and the perfect sustenance for a long day exploring the country.
Aside from its key traditional dishes, Montenegro is also famous for its prosciutto, known locally as Njeguški Pršut and its cheese, Njeguški Sir. Both of these products come from the village of Njeguški, which is known as the birthplace of the Montenegro’s Royal dynasty. This prosciutto has a dry consistency and is a rich red in colour.
When it comes to sweet delights, one of Montenegro’s better known dishes is Priganice . These small airy doughnuts are prepared with flour, water, oil, salt and sugar and are traditionally served with honey, but Priganice can also be enjoyed as savoury dish.
