one nice croatian dinner

i'm starting my croatian posts not with the first day and first emotions about this country, which are extremely positive, but i'm starting my story with a fantastic restaurant, which perhaps is more the real croatia than any other places that million tourists visit.

bachis sister, khato, has two amazing friends, sabina and azra, who live in zagreb and who came to visit us in dubrovnik for several days. by saying that, i am not quite actually right, perhaps we came to visit them, because they spent these days taking us around and everywhere and showing us some great places which we would never find by ourselves using a tourist guide. among those places was this restaurant which i want to tell you about today. this place is not known to any tourists and only people who live in dubrovnik know about it.

i can't even call it restaurant actually, it was a family house and felt like we were sitting in the garden of a very nice family and having great time. actually i don't even remember the name of the place. but i can still remember the taste of the food, the lemonade and desserts we were treated with.

almost everything on the menu is local, homemade and home-grown. the tomatoes, grapes, wine, lemonade, prosciutto, cheese, apple pies and of course the great lamb and potato grill, which takes 4 hours to be ready.

the taste of the lamb and potatoes grilled together is something beyond my words. actually it was something beyond the words of all of us: so many happy faces all together were speaking for themselves.
and i want to thank aya and sabina for the fantastic evening, with great food, nice memories, wine, jokes and lots and lots of laughs.
