    Monstera Bistro

    Bine Volčič is young, his cuisine radical. The Slovenian is by far one of the most exciting young chefs in the country. His craftsmanship can be experienced in his neo-bistro. His philosophy: zero-waste cuisine.

    Zoofa sells unique pieces by Slovenian designers. In the small shop in the Old Town you will find fashion, jewellery, accessories and Slovenian handicrafts. And the perfect souvenir for friends. Insider tip: every now and then young designers also organise events and get-togethers. Just ask in the shop.

    Nobel Burek

    Lunch like the locals: it seem as if a pack of the city’s hungry people gathers in front of the small fast food stall Nobel Burek 24 hours a day. The legendary takeaway is always open and is Ljubljana’s most popular snack bar. Be sure to try the original Sirov burek for just two euros. And don’t forget the yoghurt sauce!

    Pivnica Lajbah

    The pub food here has an international flavor, but there is local beer for a change! After a day of sightseeing, craft beer lovers are spoiled for choice: which beers should we try? The decision is not easy at all at the Lajbah Pub with over 20 beers on tap and 130 bottled beers - many of them from local and global microbreweries. If you're feeling a little (or a lot) hungry, the changing menu with its seasonal ingredients will convince you. Vegetarians will get their money's worth here, too! Also check out the cozy terrace!

„Ausg´steckt is!“ or “The “Heuriger” is open!”

If people go to a “Heuriger” or wine tavern in Vienna, then it is not simply just to drink wine. They expect the typical Viennese convivial atmosphere, dim lighting, a hearty down-to-earth “Heuriger” buffet, a “G’spritzer” (white wine with sparkling water) and some lemonade. By the way, in a traditional Viennese wine tavern you fetch the food yourself from the buffet. And a real “Heuriger” always has a bushy bunch of fir twigs hanging above the door – that is the sign that it is open or “ausgesteckt” (which literally means the twigs are “stuck out”!).
