Kopun, Taverna Sirena & Taj Mahal @ Dubrovnik

August 31, 2018

As night falls on Dubrovnik, a magical glow descends on the old town's streets - turn a different corner and you'll discover intriguing restaurants like Kopun, a chicken specialist that serves a 16th-century recipe of capon stewed in a sauce of honey, oranges and white wine, as well as a risotto of capon with apricots, curd cheese and green pesto; round off the meal with rozata, a Croation flan-like pudding flavoured with rose liqueur.

At Taverna Sirena, the catch of the day is the recommendation, hauled in off the Dalmatian coast by dawn & served after dusk.

Taj Mahal tackles the cuisine of neighbouring Bosnia-Herzegovina - the speciality is veal and turkey rolled in dough with mushrooms and cheese.
