Just like many Asian countries, Slovenia’s cuisine is strongly influenced by its surrounding nations. Some of its culinary delights include zganci which is roast buckwheat flour garnished with lard with cracklings, jota which is a boiled dish with smoked pork and brodet, a Mediterranean fish stew.
If you are looking for a restaurant, the word you need to look for (or ask for if you are feeling ambitious) is ‘restavracija’ which is your average restaurant. But if you want to dine out more like a local you will have to find a ‘gostilna’.
Eating out in Slovenia, if you have a few Tolar (Slovenia’s currency) to spare spend it on some wine as this is where some of the best wines in the world are produced. Today, Slovenia has a total of 38 wine varieties grown in 14 wine districts.
