Tirana is an interesting destination for culinary delights. There are restaurants offering traditional cuisine as well as rich Mediterranean cuisine. Foreigners are more keen to try traditional culinary and are always looking for authentic Albanian dishes. “Fërgesa, ” is the traditional dish of Tirana, which we recommend to all those travellers who visit Tirana. From now on, the Fergesa dish will have a day a dedicated to celebrate.
The Mayor of Tirana was in one of the restaurants located on the outskirts of Tirana, in the restaurant Ceren Ismet Shehu, to launch “Fergesa Fest”.It was a cooking show of fergesa dish and a great atmosphere with traditional songs and dances of Tirana.
"The same way as we do on social media by tagging our friends in a new place we want to go, we can do the same by tagging them on photos of a turkey, olive oil, a traditional dish, so that we can promote our delicious cuisine.
Tirana is surrounded by this crown of villages. I hope that this village will mane to develop further what started today, and we could all return year after year to tell the story,"- said Veliaj.
A traditional food festival was missing in Tirana, so this is a great initiative to attract more visitors. Other traditional fests are planned in Tirana villages.
