Editorial Review of Klopa Grill & Cafe

If you're one who enjoys things wrapped in bacon, Klopa Grill is about to become a staple in your diet. The recently opened restaurant (December 2009), located near the bustling intersection of Western and Lawrence, serves up Serbian cuisine for its Lincoln Square inhabitants. Dark cherry tables and chairs with red-tufted cushions make a cozy place to curl up in the building's otherwise stark (read: cold tiled floors, drop ceilings and beige walls) interior. But the exotic dishes coming out of Klopa's kitchen make the restaurant's ambiance or lack thereof a mere afterthought.

Chef and owner Nash Zivkovic remains true to his country's roots and his restaurant's name (Klopa means "good food" in Serbian slang) with well-seasoned dishes like the leskovacki opanak (a mix of ground pork and beef, rolled up with ham, wrapped in bacon and served grilled). It's a must for any meat lover; just make sure you come with a serious appetite, as Klopa's generous portions are no joke. Zivkovic's cabbage slaw makes for a light starter, as does his urnebes salad with feta, sour cream and hot peppers (you'll need something to help wash this one down).

You can BYOB for a measly five bucks, or try a strong cup of Serbian coffee. We recommend saving the black stuff for dessert, which boasts a menu of crepes spread with sweet fillings like Nutella.

Average cost: <$10
