Eating My Way Across Slovenia -

Hello RS Members -

We arrive Slovenia 8/12 from Budapest where I am familiar with the food culture ( think: savory and sweet palacsinta; retesh; langos; pogacsa and so much more...)

What are the don't miss bites in Slovenia? Stuff you can find at a sausage stand? bakery? restaurant? food store?

Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated...oh! you can toss in some local beverages to wash things down!

Thanks much!

On Lake Bled, they talk up their Cream Slice, like a big Napoleon, and a few other pastry specials to enjoy with a coffee or tea; see p. 611 if you have Rick's Slovenia/Croatia book.

At Lake Bohinj, the most memorable meal I had several years back included local cheese and versions of polenta and yogurt or sour milk, both of which I like in normal circumstances; that may have been at

Ljubljana tends toward more modern restaurants.

Thank you Laura - I've read about the cream cake.
Plan to do a lot of walking to have that fit into my diet!
(I'm coming from Paris and then Budapest which, to me, is second only to Paris when it comes to desserts - Hungary's kitchen in general is overlooked - and the desserts are wonderful - so Slovenia has a lot of work to do to meet those two places...but I am going to give Slovenia every opportunity to challenge!!!)

I have tried Slovenian wine, liked it much, and am looking forward to trying more! Thanks for the heads up and link.
