The influence of tradition and traces of the past are mirrored in the gastronomy of Dobrinjsko as well, although the authentic offer of dishes is usually supplemented by the international offer as well.
The food service facilities in the villages situated by the sea base their menus mainly on various fish specialties, including a dish that used to be quite common in the local cuisine – brodetto with polenta. On the other hand, the villages situated in the hinterland of Dobrinjsko offer as their main specialty a dish that used to be a rarity and today makes a common Sunday lunch, namely žvacet s makaruni or simply stew with macaroni. Lately, the food service facilities have started offering žvacet with šurlice (a type of homemade pasta special because of the method in which it is made). Both the facilities located by the sea and those located in the hinterland offer šurlice in combination with seafood (šurlice with scampi, šurlice in calamari sauce etc.). If you wish to have a dessert, choose presnoc, an authentic sweet dish made from homemade goat cheese. In the past, giving presnoc as a gift was an act of expressing the most profound respect. Today most of the food facilities of Dobrinjsko express this kind of respect!
