This last Friday night I was Milwaukee. Now, here is a question from the Foodie catechism.
Q. What MUST a foodie do on a Friday night?
A. A true Foodie MUST go out to eat at some unusual place, somewhere. This applies especially when not in your home town.
Nathan D. who is a good friend, and definitely a fellow foodie, invited me out for Serbian food. We decided to check out Three Brothers, a place neither of us had been before.
We started with a Serbian Salad.
A Spinach and Cheese burek (pronounced boo-rhek).
(Nathan is probably wondering how I got these pictures, because I had no camera. I just happened to find some guys who went out to the same place and got the same food and took pictures. : )
We split a Serbian Salad, and I must say I really liked the salad, although it needed more tomatoes. (Never thought I'd say that...) The salad consisted of tomatoes in small chunks, diced onions, diced green pepper, and feta cheese. It was quite delicious.
The next part of our meal we had separately. I had a Spinach and Cheese Burek (same as pictured above), and Nathan had Beef and Pork Kebabs. The Burek is made of philo dough and can be made with several different fillings, usually beef, cheese, or spinach and cheese.
Overall, the I would certainly recommend Three Brothers for an excelent meal, with great service. We were greeted as soon as we stepped in, and were seated even though we didn't have reservations.
Presentation seemed to be lacking. My burek was served on a simple plate. It kind of looked like a small cartwheel on a plate. Some might consider that to be positive : ) The place was also a bit loud and crowded by the time we left.
Our next stop was at Old Town Serbian, where we had dessert. Crepes to be exact. I had a Apricot and Walnut crepe. It. Was. Amazing. It was very sweet, but with a slightly lemony taste.
Nathan had a Chocolate crepe. There was something else in it but I just can't remember... can you refresh my memory Nathan?
This place had the coolest atmosphere. They had live music. Xylophone and Guitar. Really nice combination. Plus, there were very few people there, so it was very quiet. And, the food was fantastic! Very nicely presented. Sorry no pic...
The parking wouldn't be obvious to someone who had never been there before, but besides that...
Thanks Nathan for such a fun Serbian experience!
