From the 7th to the 9th of April Dubrovnik will be celebrating a delicacy found in the countryside around the city – asparagus. Early spring is the time that this nutritious and healthy plant comes to harvest and for three days a select number of restaurants in the city will celebrate asparagus.
Dubrovnik restaurants will offer specialties such as shrimp and asparagus risotto, octopus salad with asparagus, Adriatic shrimp on a bed of rice and asparagus, sole with asparagus sauce, stuffed sweet potatoes with asparagus and eggs, cannelloni with asparagus, oysters in tempura on a bed of asparagus, and other specialties.
The restaurants participating in this year’s Asparagus Days are: Domino, Eden, Gusta me, Klarisa, Kopun, Lajk, Mimoza, Orka, Orsan, Porat, and Rozario. Celebrate spring and this healthy choice for three days.
