Plitvice Lakes National Park: Plitvice Miric Inn

If you were to ask me what my most memorable meal was in Croatia, it would be this one.  After what seemed like hours (it really only took 90 minutes) of driving through dense forests and windy roads we finally arrived at Plitvice Miric Inn.  Walking into the first house, we stepped right into the evening dining room full of guests enjoying their evening.  We were hungry and tired, and since we were in the middle of Plitvice Lakes National Park we were happy and relieved that the inn keepers offered us a full 3 course meal prepared with local produce (all for 20 euros).  The meal started with a traditional shot of Croatian schnapps and then the salad and soup course were served.  Although every course in this meal was great, right from the fresh salad to the wonderful (and not too sweet) homemade strudel, what really stood out for me were the grilled vegetables.  And I know what you’re going to say, grilled vegetables? Yes, the zucchini, red peppers, onions, carrots, broccoli, potatoes and cauliflower all grilled and seasoned to perfection.  Maybe its the olive oil or the salt or how the fact that the vegetables come from local farmers…..or perhaps it was my hunger being satisfied but for once, I reached for more veggies rather than the protein.  Don’t get me wrong, the cevapi and trout were delicious, especially the trout but at the end of the night it was the veggies that were all eaten 🙂
