Indulge in authentic Serbian cuisine at Mitsi’s Food Festival from 9 Sept. onwards 

With Sri Lanka’s gastronomy landscape evolving at a phenomenal rate, the country’s first-ever Balkan restaurant – Mitsi’s Delicacies – is set to reveal more of its latest culinary secrets at the inaugural Mediterranean Food Festival specialising in Serbian cuisine in Sri Lanka.

“This Mediterranean Food Festival will be unique as it would be the very first gastronomic experience focusing purely on Serbian culinary delights. We invite all food-lovers to visit our hiding spot in the heart of Colombo - 34A, Bagatalle Road, Colombo 13. We are thankful to our strategic partner East West Marketing Ltd. for partnering in this first-ever Mediterranean Food Festival,” said Mitsi, who founded Mitsi’s Delicacies way back in 2012.

A celebration of fine Mediterranean taste will be open for the general public for a week starting from Saturday, 9 September onwards. Make your reservation today for a traditional Mediterranean delight with your family and friends via 0777 163 090 or visit

Dejan Paunković, the dynamic Executive Chef of Mitsi’s Delicacies who leads the culinary team, eagerly awaits to indulge the discerning Sri Lankan restaurant-goer with an array of scrumptious delicacies led by its signature national dish of Serbia – Pljeskavica. 

This heavenly culinary masterpiece is prepared with beef, lamb or chicken, along with onions, Kajmak (milk cream), Ajvar (Serbian roasted red pepper sauce), and Urnebes (spicy cheese salad) served either on plate with side dishes, or with lepinja flatbread. “Pljeskavica has become a symbol of Serbia which is now served in specialty restaurants all over Europe. I’m sure Sri Lankan foodies will love our authentic Serbian dishes,” said Dejan.  

Correspondingly, the Serbian Cevapcici, a delicious little grilled minced sausage-like meat dish served with Lepinja flatbread, often with chopped onions, sour cream, and roasted red pepper sauce mixed with pickled cheese is straight from its traditional birthplace, the Balkans. 

Additionally, to wake up each cell of our taste buds, Mitsi’s is thrilled to treat with its exclusive, iconic Serbian Risotto dish – a special chicken, seafood or vegetable broth, baked mushrooms or rice along with exotic Mediterranean BBQ. The restaurant is popular for its succulent Prawn Buzara, Serbian Cheesy Pasta, homemade Pogacha bread, Mediterranean Fish Soup and Mitsi’s Special Karađorđeva Steak.

To add a realistic Balkan ambience, a tasty side of traditional Serbian music is in line with its family-friendly theme.

From the very beginning, Mitsi’s goal was to make its customers happy, both through its amazing dishes and family-friendly, personalised service. Through the years, Mitsi’s scaled up from only doing catering and cakes to a full-service restaurant in Colombo city specializing in Serbian cuisine.

“We are proud to supply many of Colombo’s finest cafés with our cakes and dishes, such as Barista, Tea Avenue, Heladiv Tea Club, Odel, Macchiato, Cup Café, London House, Café La Défense, Shanghai Terrace, Chapter One, Double Cheese and we even export our pastries to the Maldives. We hope that Sri Lanka will be able to not only experience authentic Serbian cuisine, but also to indulge in traditional Serbian culture in your hometown,” concluded Mitsi.  “Taste Serbia: Feel Serbia!”
