A traditional casserole/stew dish that’s especially popular during the winter and New Year, like many local treats this one’s relatively simple to prepare with little more than the help of some large chunks of beef and plenty of whole small onions, garlic, white wine and herbs for flavour. Simply delicious, many Macedonians contest that the best čomlek comes from Ohrid. Others on the other hand, such as the authors of this guide, much prefer the variation they make and serve in Pelagonija. Find it on most menus and wash it down with any local beer or wine you choose.
