Ice cream with truffle sauce, an Istrian specialty

Published: 20.05.2014 by Kyrre Dahl in category: Croatia

I have just been on a trip to the Istrian peninsula in Croatia. This is a part of the world where you can find good ice cream everywhere, but they also have their own unique twist: Ice cream with truffle sauce.

A Truffle is a mushroom that grows underground and is considered a delicacy worldwide. The Istrian Peninsula has lots of truffles and many restaurants have some kind of truffle on the menu. Several serves it with the ice cream, like Stara Konoba, which you can find in Fazana, a small town just north of Pula

I tasted ice cream with truffles twice on this trip, both while eating dinner at the restaurants. The food was also delicious, all local beef and local fish/seafood. So not ice cream cafès pr. definition, but the ice cream was tasty in it self and the truffles sauce was a tasty and exciting addition.

The other place I was served ice cream with truffles was at La Grisa in Bale, a charming small town between Rovinj and Pula. Also here I can recommend the food, and the atmosphere in the backyard, which is situated between centuries-old charming buildings.

I didn`t actually see truffles on the menu in the few ordinary ice cafès I visited, but I was told that it exists, so look for it! By the way. The truffle ice cream was served with a strudel cake at Stara Konoba, and chocolate suffle at La Grisa. Both were just awesome!
