Why You'll Love It
Think of štrukli as a traditional Croatian version of lasagna, without the tomato sauce. Traditionally made with thin layers of pasta and cottage cheese, there’s as many recipes for štrukli as there are grandmothers in this part of Croatia.
La Štruk kicks things up a notch. They only serve štrukli, but they make it really, really well. They can be either savory or sweet (I prefer the savory ones), and you can get it steamed (more traditional), or gratined (tastier, in my opinion). Either way, it’s delicious, and you won’t be sorry you came. In fact, you’ll probably go back for more. I certainly did.
Know Before You Go
Note that they make each Štrukli to order, and it takes about 25 minutes. It’s well worth the wait! Be VERY careful when you start to eat it, as it’s bubbling hot. Your patience will be rewarded.
If the weather is at all nice, sit out in the little courtyard behind the restaurant. It’s lovely.
