Slightly hidden jn a side street, Caka is run apparently singlehandedly by a redoubtable lady. Food is basic but excellent, best stuffed aubergines we’ve eaten in Albania. Communication in a blend of Albanian, Italian and English. It’s also very affordable!
I visited this town around 20 times over the course of 2015-16. Each time, I would go to this restaurant every day. The head chef, Ajsha, is a kind woman and an excellent chef. I really recommend the bean soup with meat (fasule me mish)...and pilaf on the side. But, I recommend all her soups and the mixed soup that she serves is a good way to try whatever she has (it's quite seasonally based upon what vegetables are fresh). Other than that, she makes many tasty dishes like broiled potatoes, pastas, sauted trout, and baked stuffed egg plant. However, as I said, it is quite seasonal and the menu varies a bit day to day.
Unfortunately, I don't think that many people there speak too much English and it's a bit tricky to see what she's cooking. I had the good fortune to help out in her kitchen from time to time and so she may let you in if you smile and ask, so you can point out what you'd like. Otherwise, if you ask for a "mixed" plate and say 500 or 1000 leke (depending on your budget), I'm sure she will come up with something satisfying.
Do note that the restaurant has the most options between 11 and 2. So, there will be less food afterwards but you can usually get a bowl of soup with rice and bread whenever.
I miss you Ajsha! -Master ChefMore
The owner herself does the cooking and waiting all on her own. Plenty and extremely delicious food with grilled vegetables to die for , hot cheese, potatoes and tomatoes, that you are not likely to encounter any time soon again finished off with a wonderful...kebab. And very moderately price. The restaurant is a must if you should pass through Bajram Curri.More
This is a simple, but well known, restaurant for locals and visitors, located in the centre of the town; we had shared starters: huge platters of braised potatoes in tomato sauce and small, & delicious mixed vegetable stuffed little aubergines. Mains included fried local wild...trout (small, delicious and 4 per helping) stew of lamb and beans, meat balls - deemed to be very good. A complimentary coconut and cream cake for sharing and a bowl of local cherries followed. Together, with beer all around, was about £8 per person. It’s local reputation is clearly well deserved.More
