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++
