Brain And Stomach On The Menu At Hospital Restaurant

Brain And Stomach On The Menu At Hospital Restaurant

A Serbian cook who managed to open a restaurant in the middle of a busy hospital offering dishes like fried brain or stomach soup says business is booming despite local media highlighting the fact that the offerings might be seen as insensitive to patients.

The Mace Restaurant owner is located in the southern Serbian city of Nis, where Milorad Djordjevic said that he had managed to rent space at the hospital for a fraction of the cost that he would have paid on the high street. He said that just because it was a hospital, it did not mean he was not allowed to offer gourmet foods, even if it might seem strange to have devilled kidneys, stomach soup or, as it says on the menu of specialities listed outside the restaurant, pohovan mozak which is boiled brain.

He said: "I can see that it makes a few headlines but at the end of the day I serve good quality food and I'm always busy. If it's not doctors and nurses queuing up then it's patients or their visitors and I haven't had any complaints despite the newspaper headlines."

He said that in fact the only difference between his restaurant and any other was that he was used to medics suddenly leaping up and rushing off with their meals unfinished after getting an emergency call: "When that happens, we simply put the half finished meal to one side and if they want, heat it up for them again when they come back. The hospitals emergency department is on the same floor so we are used to people not having a lot of time to eat."

And with business booming, as far as he is concerned the decision to offer exotic foods from his restaurant at the heart of the hospital made good economic sense.

"We are full all the time and the overheads low, so what could be better," he said.
