Flicking through menu of Zijavica tavern, the choice is not easy - though there is little dilemma because everything sounds so good. Marinated red mullet, warm and cold fried codfish, oven-baked octopus or surprisingly tasty wild tuna? Modern dishes of raw fish specialties or authentic meal served in the same pot in which it has been prepared? Perhaps a istrian “boskarin” beef steak or stew - or even a tuna carpaccio - every pick seems to be the right one. The selection of wines is equally great because every great plate simply has to have a worthy partner in the glass.
