Marko Batricevic’s Balkan Express – Eastern European Home Cooking
Marko has been living in the Philippines for some time now. He completed his high school at La Salle Greenhills and is soon to finish his Marketing degree at De La Salle University. He played two seasons for the Green Archers in the UAAP and was a member of the 2007 championship team. When injuries cut his basketball career short, he decided to become a restaurateur.
The food business runs in Marko’s family. His brother is actually the one who cooks the meals. Marko plans to settle here and focus on his business full-time after he graduates.
Marko’s fondest memory of his college playing career was of course winning the 2007 UAAP men’s basketball title after the Archers were suspended the year before. “During the suspension year, that was when the team was very close with one another and we won all the tournaments we participated in”, he said. He still faithfully watches the games of the Archers and he is optimistic that the team will regain their footing as a legitimate contender in the coming years.
So to all you foodies out there, if you are in the mood to try some Serbian-style cooking, you may want to check out Balkan Express. You can check a review of this restaurant at Our Awesome Planet.
