Qofte, Albania (big) Several Albanian dishes have Byzantine and Arabs origins; Albanian dishes are made of spices such as garlic and hot pepper and the basic ingredients are mainly meat and vegetables. Grilled chofte (Albanian meatballs) are probably one of the most popular dishes in the Albanian cuisine
Tavë kosi is a national dish in Albania, but I only had it once, at a restaurant at the top of a mountain pass at Llogara. I wasn’t predisposed to like it. Lamb with rice and yoghurt doesn’t immediately appeal, but it turned out to be very good indeed, the same sort of dish as moussaka.
