Güjžina - Pannonian restaurant in Ljubljana

Would you like to experience the unique tastes of far eastern Slovenia right in the city center of Ljubljana? Gujžina is a relatively new little inn located at Town square in Ljubljana, right in front of the Town Hall. It’s small and charming. Everything about it is from Pannonian region - the ingredients as well as the chefs. The traditional dishes are served in a peculiar way and are paired with their excellent wine.

Gujžina is a pleasant addition to the Ljubljana culinary scene. It is actually a smaller and younger 'sister' of the well known Pannonian restaurant Mencigar - Nobile, which is located under the east side of Ljubljana castle hill. Gujžina’s cozy interior can only offer a few tables under the ancient arched ceilings. But during the warm months, its tables spread onto the pavements opposite of the Town hall.

The menu is simple and relatively short but authentic. Bograč (a Prekmurje stew with three different sorts of meat) is served in an interesting copper kettle, 'bujta repa' stew is just as tasty and of course, they also offer meat conserved in fat and numerous homemade salami. Vegetarians can choose between various salads, dishes based on buckwheat porridge or 'dödöle' (potato and flour dumplings).

Pumpkin dishes are popular in autumn and their famous 'Prekmurje gibanica' cake and other desserts have received a lot of praise too. How about a scoop of pumpkin ice cream with plum topping?

In Gujžina you can also buy Pannonian wines, homemade spirits and liquor, various pumpkin oils, handmade chocolate and much more.

Overall impression: charming and delicious!
