Salaš (in Serbo-Croatian, Czech and Slovak, from Hungarian szállás "house, accommodation") is a traditional type of farm in the Pannonian Plain region, particularly in Bačka and Slavonija. A salaš is typically remote from a town or village. It consists of a family house, agricultural objects such as barn, stable and granary, surrounded by arable land and pastures. They were owned and inhabited by single family, who lived there for generations.
In Slovak, salaši were remote encampments for sheep-guards, and eventually came to denote small countryside restaurants housed in such houses, providing sheep products and traditional home meals such as bryndzové halušky.
