Fodor's Expert Review Stara Kuka

$$ Skopje Eastern European

Stara Kuka, which means "old house" in Macedonian, is set in a charming landmarked wooden building, close to the Old Stone Bridge, that's been home to the same family for six generations. As you might expect, the menu focuses on traditional regional dishes with an abundance of wild mushrooms from the nearby forests, artisanal sheep-milk cheeses, and hearty meat casseroles and stews overflowing with vegetables and tender local lamb, veal, or pork. Freshwater fish—carp, trout, and catfish—from the areas many lakes and rivers are grilled in locally produced olive oil and best complimented with a light Macedonian white wine. In warm weather, ask for a seat in the picturesque yard, where you'll dine among the sounds of a gurgling fountain and live traditional music.
