Ljubljana’s food scene is developing so quickly it is hard to keep up. Since my last Tasty weekend in Ljubljana post we discovered so many new places with great food, it is about time to share them with you.
Trappica is small sister of Trappa located in the city center with 6 different pizzas to choose from and each better than the next. The price ranges from 3 EUR for Margarita to 4,8 EUR for Crudo. Check out this place if you are looking for a quick and delicious bite to eat at the spot or for take-away.

We didn’t eat all you see in this post during one weekend, but rather over last few months, except these two pinsas. Yesterday we went out and first wanted to go for chimney cake at Sister’s Kurtoš, I mentioned in the previous post, but it was closed so we went to Pinsa Rustika on Trubarjeva street and treated ourselves to pinsa. Pinsa is a kind of pizza, but not from Naples, but from Rome, made from various types of flours and the dough rises for 48 hours which makes it easier to digest and it doesn’t sit in your stomach making you thirsty all day.
They have various pinsas but we decided to try quite classic one with ham, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, cheese and herbs and spicy one with ‘nduja (spicy Calabrian sausage spread) with mango and honey sauce, buratta, cashews and basil. Both were really good, especially the dough is so amazing. It is a bit on a pricier side, we paid around 15 EUR for both of them, but you can ask for smaller cuts or try them at Open Kitchen market, where they have lower prices as I remember.

We visited this place after coming home from Spain. It is located outside Ljubljana, but so worth the trip there. Tia’s pizza is definitely one of my top favourite pizzas in Ljubljana and is also more pinsa than pizza. I love the crispy dough on the outside, soft and chewy in the inside and topped with only the best few ingredients. Normal size pizza is from 6,5 EUR for Margherita to 8,9 EUR for most other pizzas on the menu. You can also go for small one, which are from 3,9 EUR to around 5,3 EUR. I went for the simple Margherita to really be able to taste the dough, because the dough is what makes or breaks the pizza. Here is spot on, definitely going back for more.

KOA BISTRO & BAR
Few months ago Ljubljana got its first Hawaiian foodie place and ever since I first tried poke bowl on Open Kitchen market I was in love. The only logical thing to do was to visit Koa Bistro & Bar and see what they’ve got to offer. I ordered poke bowl with salmon on basmati rice, with some chickpeas coated in a sauce, fresh veggies and a delicious slice of pineapple and my boyfriend ordered BBQ chicken also served on a bed of basmati rice,
with chickpeas and veggies.
What I love about places like Koa Bistro & Bar is that their menu is small which makes it easier to deliver quality and also you don’t spend what feels like hours obsessing over what to order and then regretting.
Lovely ambiance, delicious food, beer imported from Hawaii, great prices (around 7,5 EUR), and excellent service is what makes you wanna keep coming back. And we will definitely go back, because there are still some things on the menu we would love to try, like Kahuku meatballs for example.

Roza Slon is our go to place when we want to eat something good before catching a ride home. There are two locations, one is across the train station and one is in Bežigrad, close to where we live. They have amazing Thai food, very few dishes and those done so well you will want to come back for more. We tried many different dishes there and everything was very good, freshly made and so affordable (5,9 EUR for everything, with shrimps 6,3 EUR). Also their restaurants are so funky and colourful they instantly make you happy.

We have been eyeing this place for such a long time and one day we decided to go there for lunch. Tloft is a restaurant, tea and coffee shop with diverse Asian food (Korean, Thai, Chinese, etc.) and we were so happy we got a taste of Taiwan there as well. First thing we ordered were crispy chicken balls with some cabbage and spicy-mayo sauce, then we got beef bao buns, some dim sum, korean bibimbap and of course bubble tea. Their menu is quite long so few more visits are definitely planned.

Café Rog has been on my list of places to visit in Ljubljana for quite a while and we finally visited for my boyfriend’s birthday. Their café is so beautiful, charming and cozy inside and there is a lovely terrace outside for those warm summer evenings. We ordered cheesecake with raspberries and cheesecake with apricot jam, so different in texture and taste but both so yummy. You can also get other food there, they have amazing wine list and the service is so great and helpful. My next stop there will be for their breakfast.
