Stare Grede means ‘old beams’ and this traditional tavern only 1km from the center is just that; old beams, rustic wooden benches, stone walls, and old farm photography.
The owner is a hunter so in wintertime, game is a favorite on the menu; his own catch. He bakes his own breads, and knocks out a reputable peka (meat prepared under a bell covered in coal) on order. He is passionate about sourcing the best produce there is, whether it be local prosciutto, vegetables, or cheese, but meat is really Stare Grede’s forte; so what else but to try some carnivorous delicacies?
The owner’s wife sometimes prepares a little surprise on the house such as čvarci paté, a paté made of pork rind, spiced with paprika. Now there is something that warms any heart; it might give you a heart attack in years to come but its so worth it. For a real man’s plate, try the bacon-wrapped tenderloins on the spit with potatoes à la peka on the side but be aware that the portions are massive and steak on the spit means two spits with four 7cm diameter pieces on each, so eight pieces (!!). Even a real man can’t consume the whole plate.
Stare Grede also stir up a sumptuous selection of daily dishes going from 29KN only and is a popular lunch spot for blue-collars at breaktime.
