Il paradiso gourmet sulla cima del Monte Maggiore
Under the very top of Mount Učka - Vojak - at 1,000
meters above sea level, lies restaurant Dopolavoro, with a
gastronomic tradition that goes back to the beginning of the
twentieth century. The dense forests of Učka, among which it is situated,
inspired the restaurant’s offer so on the menu you will find mostly products of the forest and game meat specialties, such as selected dishes from deer, roe deer, wild boar, bear, as well as dishes under the peka or čripnja (baked in a fireplace under a bell-like dome) - such as veal and lamb dishes, veal shanks. Along with game dishes, prepared in an autochtonous way, you should taste the excellent homemade soups and dishes of wild mushrooms and asparagus as well as the famous dessert known as “bakin poljubac” (grandma’s kiss), while the richness of flavor is further emphasized by the authentic rustic décor of the restaurant.
