Dining in Umag is quite the culinary experience. Istria is a unique land, offering flavours distinct to this region of Croatia. Umag's seafront location allows the restaurants to serve the finest of both sea and land. Obviously seafood such as fish, prawns, squid and shellfish are abundant and the freshest can be found here.
Local tastes are also very popular and plentiful, and no trip to Istria would be complete without sampling the appetizing fare. It is well-documented that truffles are regarded as a delicacy around the world. Istria's land is perfect for truffle growing and they are very common in meals, especially with pasta and beef dishes. Istrian ham, or prosciutto, is a local delicacy and often paired with cheese and homemade bread.
Seasonal vegetables such as asparagus and wild mushrooms add distinctive flavours to any meal. The fertile land of Istria coupled with its ideal climate provides ideal growing conditions for olives and grapes. So it is no surprise that the olive oil and wines of the region are known worldwide. Olive oil and wine producers fill the hills of Istria and are eager to share their products with you.
