After looking over the menu quickly I stumbled across the words crni rižot. Squid ink risotto is a scary looking dish, totally jet black if made properly & very fishy. If you don't love seafood, then it's not for you. I, however, love seafood. You can find this dish all over Croatia, but it's best Konoba's on the coast where the ingredients are super fresh and super local.
When it arrived, my friend & I looked at my plate suspiciously. She watched as I tasted a mouthful. Fishy, it was, delicious it also was. I enjoyed it, tho' found it easier to eat without staring at it for too long. It is so true that you eat with your eyes. The less I concentrated on the colour, the more I enjoyed it. The huge chunks of cuttlefish and squid mixed into the risotto were delicious.
Once I'd finished my friend said, "Go on then, stick out your tongue".

Would I eat it again? Definitely! It's delicious, if you like seafood, give it a try!
