Eating & drinkingEating & drinking

While Croatia may not have ‘haute cuisine’, you really should try the traditional dishes. The Croatian kitchen is very diverse, and it is therefore difficult to say what a typical Croatian meal is. The coastal areas are well known for their delicacies made with truffles and their ‘maneštra od bobic’ soup, found particularly in Istria. The fresh fish and seafood dishes are definitely worth a try. Istria is known for its truffles and truffle based products. Local wines in Croatia are of excellent quality. The viniculture boasts traditions and recipes that are often centuries old. Red grapes are grown mostly along the coast while white grapes dominate the areas inland. The Malvazija and Teran wines of Istria are well worth trying. Traditional spirits include Lozovaca, Šljivovica, and Travarica. Croatians usually end their meals with a Maraschino or Proek.
