Bilo je odlično.
-"It was delicious" in Slovenian (wikitravel.org/en/Slovenian_phrasebook)

We may have only been in Slovenia for four days, but that was enough to know that the country's food is delicious.  Ljubljana is especially delicious, and there is quite the food scene there (odprtakuhna.si).  I noticed many pasta and risotto dishes, probably due to the country's close proximity to Italy, and lots of mushrooms.  Vegetarian fare was available although not particularly abundant or creative, but the restaurants we tried were very accommodating to my requests.  My favorite meal was at the well-reviewed Valvas'or, which was fancy yet affordable.  And despite not being a fan of red wine, I checked an item off of my Slovenian bucket list when I tried the country's famous orange wine (which had strong notes of red wine, in my opinion).  All-in-all, it was delicious indeed.
