What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

It's the Balkans, so plenty of meat. And more meat. Nice sea food from the Mediterranean. But you won't starve if meat isn't your choice. Try: barbecue (dimljena bela vešalica, and such), kaamak (polenta with melted cheese), telea, orba (beef soup), crni rižoto (risotto with squid ink), kajmak (buttery cheese), pršuta (prosciutto), etc. There are many restaurants which might not be there when you wish to pay them an extra visit; some places change fast. Good local restaurants I visited often are "Pod Volat", "Mayka", "Beer Academy" (Akademija piva) and Sicilia, although you will find plenty more (I'm focused more on the western side because that's where we live). Note: Montenegrins don't like spicy foods. However, there's a great Indian place called Masala Art in Podgorica and Taste of Asia in Budva. Check donesi.com for home deliveries. Bakeries and sweet shops: Mina torte i kolai, arolija, Nonna, Zdravi kolai, Pekara Dušan, Pekara Zora, 3 or 4 donut places. And "Kod Feta" has the best pies (and a mural of Bob Marley). - Jul 2020

No fast food! Almost all restaurant food is either Italian or pizza. Not a wide variety here. It can get old fast. Pizza is very cheap and decent at about 4 Euro for a large cheese. - Aug 2010
