Kosice, Slovakia - Rustic Slovak fare at Karczma Mlyn

  • 0

Dinner this evening for us was at Karczma Mlyn, a rustic-looking restaurant specialising in traditional, peasant Slovak fare. Seating includes pleasant but hard-to-get al fresco tables on Hlavna Ulica, Kosice's main pedestrian street; or the atmospheric labyrinthian indoor seating with its farm implements, hunting paraphernalia, antiquated lamps and animal pelts hanging from the rafters.

We started our dinner off this evening with:
- Zurek, a hearty, tasty Polish soup containing potatoes, sausages and hard-boiled egg. It was the most delicious soup I'd had in a long while, but also extremely rich in lard/bacon flavours.

Our main courses:
- Zajačik na hríboch (pork tenderloin medallions with rosemary and mushrooms): very generous portions of fragrant grilled pork, served with a mound of potato wedges.

- Kačacie prsia (duck breast, with roasted apple, raspberries & red wine sauce, and mashed potatoes au gratin): the local duck has a very strong scent, but went deliciously with the sweet, caramelly apple-raspberry-red wine sauce. A large mashed potato timbale was topped with strong Bryndza cheese. Texture-wise, it was perfect.

Loved the food. Not so sure about the Slovakian hunting lodge decor with real fox pelts hanging overhead whilst we eat.
