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

Korcula The cuisine of the Adriatic coast was influenced by neighboring Italy and France slightly larger than the cuisine of central Croatia. In Korcula, you can easily order the usual Croatian meat courses as well as the popular seafood courses at any local restaurant. When ordering the latter, note that in the menu the price is usually indicated per kilogram, and the real portion can be bigger or smaller. Also, it is worth remembering that usually only fresh seafood is cooked here, which means there is no guarantee that all courses will definitely be available for the order because the catch is different every time. Do not expect a plentiful meal in the morning: before lunch, in many restaurants, only part of the courses are cooked, because the locals usually do not eat much for breakfast.
Korcula has two main beach recreation centers, the capital and the picturesque village of Lumbarda. The attractive pebble BanjeBeach is in the immediate vicinity of the capital’s … Open
Brodet can be called one of the most popular local fish courses. Once it was prepared from the seafood leftovers and vegetables, and now brodet is the local delicacy and culinary landmark of the Adriatic. The recipe is quite simple: add fish, spices, and vegetables to the open utensil and steam everything in wine until most of the liquid evaporates. Brodet is served with corn porridge. Do not be afraid of the appearance of the "black rigot". This dish may look unusual but it tastes great.
Be sure to try the catfish on the grill with navaga called "sea-suma" and prshatari, a dish made from lobsters. In general, the choice of seafood on the island is simply huge – from all kinds of fried, baked, stewed, and sun-dried fish to mussels with rice, oysters in lemon juice, and octopus fried in wine. When you order the dish you like, remember that portions here are really huge and sometimes it is worth taking one dish for two. Copyright

If you prefer meat to fish, then you will not stay hungry on Korcula. Here in any restaurant, you will be served a world-famous prsut, dried pork ham, spicy sausage from chopped pork with paprika called "kulena" and a visovacka begavica – lamb stewed with sour milk. It is also worth paying tribute to pasticada, stewed beef in wine sauce. It is usually served with dumplings. Another time they can serve rice, and potatoes, and pasta, and a variety of cereals as a garnish. Salads here are usually the simplest – chopped vegetables and fruits.
Do you like sweets? Here you can eat all kinds of desserts as much as you want, without worrying too much about your figure. The thing is the Croats prefer to use walnuts, cottage cheese, poppy seeds, fruit in cakes and pastries – in short, everything that is not too high in calories. One of the most delicious desserts here is rightly considered the medjimurska gibanica, a pie made of puff pastry stuffed with apples, cottage cheese, nuts, and poppy seeds. Rab cake, which recipe was invented on the island of Rab and is still unknown for certain, is also very delicious, and local chocolate with pepper, and honey, and candied fruit, and gingerbread, and jam from dried figs.
Korcula, like the other island territories, is not a good place for large-scale shopping. If you want to buy things from the world's leading manufacturers at low prices, it's best to take … Open
The local cafeterias are opened since 6 a.m. The coffee here is served by default in the form of espresso, but you can order one of many other types. The Croatians like this drink very much and they can make it well. Both soda and juices are popular, and traditional tea is hidden under the name "Indian". When you order, you will bring you an infusion on herbs anyway. More than coffee the locals like, perhaps, only wine. Though the beer is also very popular, especially light, it is far from the fermented grapes drink. Hrvatica, Pinot, Teran, Traminac, Posip, Burgundac – there are many varieties of local wine, and each dish is best with its own type of wine. The strong infusions are also popular, usually the one on fruits or herbs: Sljivovica, Viljamovka, Pelinkovac, Biska. Many advise trying the liqueur Maraschino and the local brandy Vinjak.
