I had the best dinner in this family restaurant (at least while I am in Europe) located in Berat Albania. The restaurant was in their private house and literally located in a stone cave. The waiter was the husband, while all the foods cooked by the wife. They were extremely nice.
It was romantic - as it was so quiet, there were only 5 tables and most of the guests were couple. All foods were amazing and they even gave us rakiya (Albanian liquor) for free bcs it is part of the culture. This place is the reason why Berat was worth to visit #Berat#Albania#instafood
I finally cut my hair short (to throw away the bad lucks and bad hair) to mark the end of my trip in Albania!! Many asked about my trip in Albania and whether it is worth the penny. Below is my quick review about the country:
1. Albania is cheap. I spent "only" 200 euro for one week staying. With such amount of money, I can have fancy foods (a lot!!), chairs and umbrella in the beach, all bus tickets and taxi from one place to another and a good haircut!! 2. The people are insanely nice, the airbnb owners, the taxi drivers, the restaurant owner are attentive, even one of the restaurant owner in Berat gave me rakiya for free to have a toss.
3. The beaches are so beautiful and have many good cafes on it. Not to forget, it is not really packed so you can take good photos and swim undisturbed. Albania has also many bizarre things you may have never seen, like stone castle, the coldest and bluest water source, the unique tradition and weird architecture in Tirana.
4. The foods are amazing. Done!! 5. The unpleasant thing about Albania is the public transportation. It has no train or fancy bus. Though, the bus is still bearable.
In conclusion, this trip is worth every penny. I would love to come back next year for the beaches!
