Ljubljana now has its own menu, called VISEAT LJUBLJANA. It can be tasted at Strelec restaurant in the Ljubljana castle, in the embrace of the Archer’s Tower. This restaurant has earned exclusively great reviews and praise since its opening. The menu was created with the objective that the visitors of Ljubljana would get an authentic and top-level menu with the signature of Slovenia and Ljubljana in the perfect ambiance in the most visited tourist location in Ljubljana.
The menu was created in cooperation with Ljubljana Tourism, the recognized Slovenian ethnologist Prof. Dr. Janez Bogataj and the Strelec restaurant team. The VISEAT LJUBLJANA is also a wordplay; namely, `When you VISIT Ljubljana, EAT Ljubljana style`.
We would like to remind you that at last year`s St. Martin`s Day celebration, Ljubljana, like several other prestigious European capitals, got its own dessert: a cake that carries the name Ljubljana and should become the trademark of Ljubljana. Since Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia and represents the centre of all happenings, the Ljubljana cake integrates ingredients from various regions of Slovenia: pumpkins, chestnut, honey, buckwheat and figs. Following the invention of the cake, the creators also made a recipe for macaroons, called Kiss from Ljubljana, which captures the taste of the cake in cookie form. Now, Ljubljana also has its own Ljubljana menu, which will only increase its recognition further in the culinary area.
For the taste buds… Let`s become familiar with the new Ljubljana menu (it is a four-course meal including a greeting from the kitchen)…
