If you still think that Serbian food is heavy, than think twice! Actually, Serbian cuisine blends Mediterranean flavors with the heartier eating habits of Central Europe. Apart from delicious sarma, stuffed peppers, kajmak, podvarak and other famous dishes which are a bit harder to digest, there are lots of light and mild dishes which make you feel balanced and calm :-)
