Beachside Dining at Porec's Promenade
Many beachside restaurants, bars and cafés are found along the Poreč promenade. A wide variety of freshly caught seafood from the Adriatic is a staple in the cuisine, while traditional Istrian dishes are a fusion of Italian and Mediterranean flavours. Enjoy the taste of the gastronomy of Poreč along the boardwalk, taking in the sea and sun.
The Poreč cuisine is a fusion of Mediterranean and Central European flavours, influenced by its geographical location and historical ties. Here are some of the specialities enjoyed in Poreč:
Seafood: As the city of Poreč is located on the Adriatic coast, seafood is a staple in the area. Fresh fish, squid, scallops, and shrimp are often grilled or prepared in buzara (a local seafood stew).
Truffles: The forests of Istria are famous for their truffles. They are frequently used in a variety of dishes, from pasta and risotto to omelettes and meat dishes, adding a luxurious feel and flavour to the local cuisine.
Pasta and Risottos: As there is an undeniable Italian influence in Poreč, pasta is a very popular meal. Be on the lookout for dishes like fuži (a type of hand-rolled pasta) and pljukanci, which are often served with truffles, cream sauces, or seafood. Risotto is also a common dish, usually made with local seafood or seasonal vegetables.
Wine: The Istrian region is well-known for its excellent red and white wines. Malvazija and Teran are two local varieties popular with locals. Malvazija, a white wine, is aromatic and pairs well with seafood, while Teran, a red wine, is stronger in flavour, and goes well with truffle dishes and red meats.
Cheese and Cured Meats: Locally made cheeses, typically made with goat and sheep’s milk, have a distinct flavour due to the Mediterranean herbs the animals graze on. Cured meats, like pršut (a type of prosciutto), are also the main parts of gastronomy. Cheese and charcuterie are often served as starters.
Sweets and Desserts: Desserts like fritule (small doughnuts with rum or citrus zest) and kroštule (fried pastry ribbons) are traditional treats, especially enjoyed during the holiday season. Perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth!
