Tirana, Albania 2021 šŸ‡¦šŸ‡± Traditional Albanian Food

we're trying traditional Albanian food todayĀ 
found a place on Tripadvisor that was recommendedĀ Ā  didn't really know what to order so we just askedĀ 
our server basically to give us just all theĀ Ā  traditional Albanian food so i'm not actuallyĀ 
sure if this is the right restaurant that'sĀ Ā  on Tripadvisor but we'll try it we'reĀ 
just gonna go with it it should be good look at these big beans they said bigĀ 
beans on the menu and i thought you knowĀ Ā  i put them in a big bowl of beans this was the traditional casserole this was the traditional salad and this breadĀ Ā  it looks so good do you want to try theĀ 
beans since you ordered the beans yeah please and then i don't know do you eat this with the I'd say with the bread with the bread those are sizzling it's still it's still very hot it's still so hot i've never seen a big bigger bean how is it i've never tasted that kind ofĀ 
bean before it's very creamy creamy is it like a lima bean its like they overgrew it goodness yeah that's really good that's a good bean that's a big big bean so i'm going to try the traditional casserole it's cheese and peppers i'm sure there are otherĀ 
ingredients as well but that's all that was on the ricotta cheese it reminds me of what you wouldĀ 
dip in like i don't know that's so good the bread my word no the cheese oh but what about theĀ 
bread though the bread's amazing too but kinda tastes like a taco the bread immediately reminded me of turkey i can't figure out whatĀ 
reminds me but it's so good grilled vegetablesĀ  and it looks like there's likeĀ 
a balsamic glaze on it maybe its good it has a ton of balsamic on it whichĀ 
you say i appreciate it but it's almostĀ Ā  overpowering that it is a little bitĀ 
because it's the only thing that'sĀ Ā  less balsamic to taste theĀ 
grill of the veggies but its so good and what's hilarious is we just orderedĀ 
a whole bunch of stuff and we didn't knowĀ Ā  if we had enough food this isn't even theĀ 
main course we saw a whole big plate of meatĀ Ā  but i could just eat all this you said you thinkĀ 
you figured out what the casserole tastes like it reminds me of like when you'reĀ 
having a seven-layer dipĀ Ā  or something at a party butĀ 
it's just a very American thingĀ Ā  like it tastes like that on your palate butĀ 
it's gonna feel better than that in your stomach Layla's going to try the traditional salad i got olive feta cheese there's a tomatoĀ Ā  cucumber and lettuce and i'mĀ 
going to try it it's a big bite so how is it very good is it salad-y the olive and the feta reallyĀ 
goes to sweet cucumber and lettuce very very fresh yeah because so fresh it kind ofĀ 
tastes like has like a melon taste one interesting thing about Albania that we'veĀ 
noticed so far is that most the restaurants serveĀ Ā  small plates as opposed to having one big meal youĀ 
order a couple of small plates family style whichĀ Ā  is pretty cool you can really easily get a lot ofĀ 
variety and it's all still really cheap talkingĀ Ā  about plates the plates are too small to fitĀ 
all the yummy food just gonna add that typicallyĀ Ā  i don't like my food to touch or i try at leastĀ 
not too too much especially with different saucesĀ Ā  but for this i don't care at all it's alsoĀ 
good it can mix all on my plates totally fineĀ Ā  there's several different types of meatĀ 
in this platter and this is the small oneĀ Ā  chicken lamb sausage chicken wings what are you going to try i'll try some of this sausage i feel like ever since we've been to theĀ 
balkans the meat has been next level it'sĀ Ā  so well seasoned and so good what is this cameĀ 
from the sky tastes like what i got mostly fatĀ Ā  the season is good though one thing that i've noticed umĀ 
albania that's different thanĀ Ā  a few of the other places we've been is there'sĀ 
a huge vegetarian and also vegan optionsĀ Ā  it's nice because i don't always likeĀ 
a ton of meat so it's nice to be ableĀ Ā  to eat a whole bunch of yummy beansĀ 
and salads and veggies and meat so they cooked the meat fresh like right behind ourĀ 
table and then grilled it's all so so good likeĀ Ā  i said there's lamb and chicken wings and grilledĀ 
chicken and sausage the chicken wings are amazingĀ Ā  some sort of rib piece i thinkĀ 
it was all so so good it's insane what i like meat the good thing aboutĀ 
the meat here is that you pretty muchĀ Ā  know it's fresh just the other day i sawĀ 
a guy putting two lambs in his trunk ofĀ Ā  his minivan so there's meat markets allĀ 
over the place butcher shops fish marketsĀ Ā  i'm going to attempt to give the chef aĀ 
message the food was amazing thank you so much we thought we were finished butĀ 
our waiter just brought us someĀ Ā  fresh fruit like this really pretty fruitĀ 
salad and some cloves on the bottom orangesĀ Ā  and some walnuts and a glaze itĀ 
looks like the fruit's so fresh let's go to england and get someĀ 
crumpets yeah and i can't remember what's happening we're eating food guysĀ 
meat some beans beef i'm a villager give meĀ Ā  emeralds
