Restaurant Konoba Mate – Pupnat
Pupnat has well known and very popular restaurant/ konoba “Mate”. The konoba is run by a local Pupnat family (Matij and Mirjana Farac) and is located at the very centre of the village (you can’t miss it). They specialise in home-made food – everything from cured meats to pasta to cheese comes from the family’s land.
After enjoying a huge appetizer plate loaded with pancetta, sausage, goat cheese, and wild capers, move on to the goat cheese ravioli, and finish off with pastries and juniper or rosemary sorbet. Be sure to check out the smoke-house, hanging with dozens of legs of pršut (above photo right)
A bottle of herb rakija, Croatian grappa, sits on each table along with a clutch of other liqueurs (mandarin, wild cherry, apricot, fig, rose petal, carob).
Konoba Mate is a very popular place, so don’t just turn up – phone for table reservation to avoid any disappointments…
