For this Easter holiday, Dubrovnik restaurants are preparing interesting menus with traditional meals and modern interpretations of food that has been served during this biggest Catholic holiday for centuries. The tastes and scents of spring, wild asparagus, young lamb and green peas, refined spices, and new interpretations of traditional dishes await you during Easter Lunch.
Food has always had a central role in the celebration of Easter and some of these Easter customs have been preserved until the present day. Certain Easter foods are packed in a basket and taken to church to be blessed and later, they are eaten for Easter breakfast or lunch. In Dubrovnik’s Easter baskets one can find fresh cheese, spring onions, salt, traditional ˝pinca˝ (Easter sweet bread), and eggs, ingredients and specialties whose flavours sum up all the fullness and beauty of Easter traditions and ancient customs.
Banje Beach Restaurant Lounge & Club, Oyster & Sushi Bar Bota, Chihuahua Cantina Mexicana, Pivnica Dubrava, the Restaurants Gatsby, Horizont, Kopun, Magellan, Mimoza, Orsan, Domino, Gusta me and Rozario, Konoba Pupo, and the Taj Mahal restaurants in the Old City and in Hotel Lero, in particular, will make your Easter lunch memorable.
A spring salad with crispy, battered shrimp, a tortilla ˝cake˝ (patty) stuffed with dried tomatoes and fresh goat’s cheese with basil oil, a sea bream fillet with sesame and steamed vegetables, poached sea bass on a broccoli foam, a fresh sea bass fillet in crispy vegetables with a caper sauce, lamb with green peas and dill, veal prepared under the bell, and selected desserts like carrot, chocolate or carob cake, are just part of the rich range of dishes that will be provided by the restaurants.
