When you are in Istria you must try some of the fish dishes and seafood. Take your chance to eat fresh and delicious fish. True gourmets consider the pilgrim scallop of Novigrad, or kapešante as it is called locally, to be one of the tastiest shellfish in the world, because it grows in the Novigrad marine area where salty seawater mixes with fresh river water and the nature give people its best.
