Food Tour in Tirana will walk you through the New Bazaar in Tirana.
The New Bazaar of Tirana is the place where everyone can find things for themselves. This place is the oldest newly renovated. The Bazaar lately has changed its facade into a more modern look. However it’s a place where even those who do not speak English will find a way to communicate with you. This the capital’s newest tourist destination.
In this Food Tour in Tirana, you will find a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy products. All of them are local products by local farmers and presented in the New Bazaar. But you will also find fish and meat, wine and raki. Even souvenirs to take home with you. Not to mention the beautiful colorful buildings around it.
The vibe around the place is completely positive, with a mix of the old-style and new styles. Around the bazaar, there are many restaurants and places to try traditional food.
During this tour, you will sample many local, traditionally cooked dishes (adding up to quite a big meal, so come hungry!). You will learn the history of Tirana, the influences of the social climate of the last few centuries, and how Tirana itself affected the lifestyle of the surrounding area. You’ll then see how all of this culminated in our modern lifestyle, cuisine, architecture, and Albanian traditions.
Starting from Skanderbeg Square, your path will take you past the Ethem Bey Mosque and the Clock Tower on your way to the New Bazaar. Kornacka Korca meatballs paired with beer brewed both locally and in surrounding regions will start your tour through the dairy, meat, and fish market stands of the Bazaar. Next up on the menu are locally grown grapes, figs, blackberries, cherries, pears, plums, apricots, olives, seeds, nuts, baked desserts, and baklava.
By the end of the tour, you won’t be able to eat another bite, and the memories you’ve made and the knowledge you’ve acquired will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Meanwhile, in this food tour in Tirana, you will be learning more about Tirana’s social and culinary culture.
