In the hinterlands of Istria, among the dark, dense forests surrounding the medieval towns of Motovun and Buzet, deep in the clay, an underground truffle mecca can be found. These are some of the richest grounds for uncovering the black diamond of Istria, better known as the truffle.
Only the most experienced Istrians and their canine companions are capable of sniffing out this potent subterranean fungus.
Istria’s abundance of truffles has been a well kept secret from the rest of the international food world for years, and people are finally starting to take notice. There are three varieties of black truffle that can be found in the heart-shaped peninsula’s oak forests, as well as the more rare, premium white truffle.
This gourmet delicacy, “the diamond of Istria”, has been used in Istrian cooking for years, and one of the most popular ways of preparing it is with traditional Istrian pasta, fuži.
Have a taste of a delicious, one of a kind Istrian truffles in our restaurant! We combine them with our perfect, homemade pasta and fresh, aromatic seafood.
