The Slovenian Week of Restaurants 2015 (spring) pt.1

Recently I did a Quiz from BBC entitled Why do you love the world? And I must say the results were pretty accurate. Among other things it said I am a foodie, which is true :) When I have the chance to discover new places to eat I am always ready to dive in.

And what better way to do it then in the Week of Restaurants?!

For the spring edition I went with the two choices both of which I've been wanting to try for some time now - first will be revealed today...

In recent years I drove a lot pass Gostilna Pri Danilu and after hearing quite some praise for its food the only natural thing was to try it out.

The menu prepared was a three course with additional being the welcome course. 

Welcome course - Cheese lollipop with pumpkin seeds

What I will definitely remember is the Spring soup with shells and trout dumpling. Great taste, fresh and warm at the same time. All ingredients working with each other, right textures, simply perfect. (I apologize for the low quality of the below photo)

The second course Visoška pečenka (roast) named after a settlement in the Slovenian municipality Škofja Loka was correctly made, but it probably won't stick with me for a long time. 

Roast with carrot puree, caramelised carrot & carrot in the oven 

The dessert was also something to talk about. Again a typical Slovenian dessert made a little bit different - 'Prekmurska gibanica'. And I don't usually like so much cream, but this was different. A true harmony.

All in all I would say Danilo was a good choice, I would probably want to visit it again, because to be honest I wasn't completely relaxed while dining. So, if there will be a chance I would love to dine once again at Danilo's. For now this experience was fine and correct. 

If I had to give points from  from 1 to 10, I would say food was 8,5 and the service could be better, so overall a good 8 would be my vote.*

*bearing in mind my all time favourites have a vote of: Gostilna Mahorčič 10+ and Gostilna pri Lojzetu 10++

Music Monday

This is probably a familiar story to most of you: ''I went on youtube just for one track, but ended up discovering 5 new artists''. Well that's what happens to me often, so today I want to share my current playlist with you. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Hello & yes we're back!

I've been thinking for a while now about all the things that make me happy. Writing for paintmyteacup is one of them. Just yesterday I spoke with my sister Alice and we've agreed it's time for a comeback. As our schedules kept growing our posts became rare, but hey we're back right where we stopped. 

Just to give you a quick update on what's been going on with my life. I started my own business with portable chargers/powerbanks and building my own brand from scratch (www.simplebatt.com). I also decided that 2015 will be the year I finish my master degree on Media studies and popular culture. Music keeps being an important part of my life (more info ), I still love to travel and try out new restaurants, so as for me I feel nothing has really changed. Hopefully I am just a little bit more experienced & wiser :)

I am sure Alice will also give you and update on her life very soon.
