Gostilna Mahorčič

 

Culinary masterpieces of the best Slovenian confectioner

The contemporary Karst and Brkini cuisine is so good at Mahorčič that you may not have enough space left for their exceptional desserts.

In the small village of Rodik between Brkini and Karst, the Mahorčič family inn has been operating for more than one hundred years. It is now run by Ksenija and Martin, the fourth generation of Mahorčič hospitality workers.

Martin has grown up in the hospitality business. He navigated among the guests as a small child and later attended catering school. Chef Ksenija, awarded Best Slovenian Confectioner of 2020 by Gault & Millau, only found her way into the kitchen after graduating and marrying Martin. Her passion for amateur cooking soon developed into perfection.

The inn is nicely decorated with agreeable interior furnishings, a wood-burning oven and a garden in the atrium. A modern interpretation of traditional Karst and Brkini dishes made from local ingredients can be found on the menu. The choice is not vast, but it seems that all dishes on the menu must be tasted. Like roasted duck breast with orange sauce, for example.

Local delicacies such as Karst and smoked bear prosciutto, Brkini cheeses, and herbs and fruit from the Karst and Brkini forests and meadows are also on offer. Not to mention the desserts. In spite of their contemporary design and delicate make, they have the sweet taste of the Brkini and Karst countryside. Try Brkini pear with Karst juniper brandy.
