Cuisine of Hvar Island for gourmets. Places for dinner - best restaurants

Hvar On the island, you can taste all the best Croatian dishes. Due to the proximity of the sea, the seafood courses are also very popular and varied here. However, the most significant dish for local culinary experts is still the most famous prhut. This is a pork ham, which is smoked on coals, and then it is dried in the sun. Each cook has his own recipe for cooking this dish, and therefore you won’t find two identical portions of prsut. Those, who prefer meat, will like the kulen, a sausage from chopped pork with a lot of various seasonings. Please note that due to a large amount of red paprika, these sausages are mostly very, very spicy.
Hvar ranks first among the Croatian islands in terms of the number of sunny days per year. The island is ideal for the fans of calm hiking, bicycle tours, and for divers. Those, who like to … Open
Bordet can be considered another landmark of the local cuisine. Initially, this dish was the prerogative of poor chefs and was prepared from the remains of vegetables and seafood. Today, bordet is the most popular stew in Croatia. Its recipes also differ for different chefs but the general principle is unchanged: fish and seafood are stewed on an open fire in open containers with the addition of wine, vegetables, and spices. When almost all the liquid is evaporated, the dish is considered ready and is served with corn porridge.
Dalmatian pasticada is popular among the meat courses. It is beef stewed in a wine sauce. Pasticada is usually served with dumplings. You can also try visovacka begavica, lamb meat with sour milk. But still, Hvar is famous for its fish courses. Here it is worth trying a black "rizhot", which, in its essence, is a variation of the Italian risotto with the addition of cuttlefish ink. Very delicious! Try grilled fish with chard. Pay tribute to pasta with shellfish and dishes from oysters and calamari. The variety of types of cooking the seafood here is huge. By the way, please note that in the menu prices for fish are indicated per kilogram, whereas the real weight of the serving is likely to be less. Copyright

The local method of cooking called "under the lid" Is very interesting. On the menu, you can often find Ispod peke. The dish is prepared quite simply: take the meat of lamb, veal or octopus, put it in a stove together with some potatoes and cover with a lid. On the top of the stove, the chefs put the coals. And that's all! The ingredients are slowly baked in their own juice, and the lid is lifted only when the dish is ready. It turns out incredibly tasty, nourishing and fragrant.
Vis, Croatia If you like sweets but limit yourself for fear of gaining weight, then Croatian desserts will suit you. The local cakes are low-calorie, usually, they are made with fresh fruits, as well as almonds and walnuts. It is worth trying medjimurska gibanica, a pie with a layered filling of cottage cheese, apples, poppies, and nuts sprinkled with sugar powder. Do not go past the povitica roll with nuts and the Ston cake, in which the nuts, so loved by the locals, coexist with the pasta. Rabska cake, which original recipe the residents of the Rab island still keep a secret, is also delicious. Paprenjak and Kremsnita also deserve attention.

If you are used to drinking coffee in the morning, you should look for the nearest cafeteria. They usually open at 6 am. Those, who prefer tea, should take into account that the Croats like all kinds of herbal collections, therefore the traditional version of this drink you can get if you order "Indian tea". Wine is very respected by the local people but they usually drink it in the form of Gemischt, white wine mixed with mineral water, or Spritzer, wine mixed with soda. Sweet Malvasia and Prošek are very popular. Among strong drinks, sljivovica and travnica are popular here.
