Idrija žlikrofi

Taste the mysterious festive miners’ dish!

Idrija žlikrofi is a type of pasta filled with spiced balls made of cooked potato, sautéed onions and lard. In Idrija, they have undoubtedly been made for at least 150 years, but it is not certain whether their shape tries to resemble the Napoleon’s hat or whether they have come to these parts from the Alpine region. Be that as is may, with bakalca (the traditional mutton sauce), roast or porcini mushrooms, Idrija žlikrofi today represent the staple in the restaurant offer of our oldest mining town.
