“While in Croatia, eat as a Croatian.”

 Prosciutto

 Croatia has been recognized as one of the most famous home countries of prosciutto.

There are two different types’: Drniski prsut (prosciutto from town Drnis) and Istrian prosciutto.

The best is to serve it with cheese, olives and homemade bread called pogaca.

Brudet

This is my favourite dish. Brudet is a fish stew from Croatia, similar to an Italian Brodetto or Greek Bourdeto. It is made of delicious fish stew cooked in a tomato base. The best one is made of Monkfish (Grdobin ). Usually served with polenta.

Burek – from bakery

 It is pastry originally made of meat, but in Croatia, the most famous one is the one with cheese (in Bosnia they call it pita). You can find burek in any bakery and it is the best meal after a long party night.

 Lamb from Boraja (Janjetina s Boraje)

 If you ever happen to drive trough countryside in Dalmatia, Boraja should be one of the stops. There are few restaurants run by local families and everything is 100% natural.

Janjetina

Baked veal (Teletina ispod peke)

 It is also the speciality of Dalmatian countryside: the best meat you will ever try. It is served with baked potatoes and salad.

The marinated beef is then roasted and cooked with roasted bacon, onions, parsley root, nutmeg, prunes, tomato paste, water and Prosecco up to five hours, depending on meat.
