There are a variety of choices to choose from such as Italian, Japanese, American, Mediterranean,and Turkish, as well as many local options.


Tuzla Dining

Since Tuzla is a small town, there is not a high presence of international cuisine. There are some restaurants that serve Italian, Mediterranean, and European cuisine but the majority are restaurants that serve the usual Bosnian dishes are available throughout the town. There are many traditional Bosnian fast food restaurants where you can eat ćevapi prepared in a different way than in Sarajevo. The best one in our opinion is Limenka.
