Respond to Review of Ajdovo Zrno
Review: Imagine some college guys trying to fill up at mealtime without eating meat and without spending much money. That's what eating here reminded me of. I tried the daily special (Kosilo) that includes soup, a small salad, a hot main dish and a dessert. (Presumably this changes daily so I'm just reporting on today's menu.) The tomato soup was standard, with chunks of carrots and potatoes (think filler food). The salad was a bowl of half lettuce and half cabbage, on the bitter side. (Other people seemed to be given the option to make their own small salad from the ample salad bar--definitely a better way to go!). The main dish was a five by five inch, two inch high square of whiteness: cheese and bread and crust dosed in a slimy green sauce. It had no taste. If you managed your way through this dense mass you'd feel quite full. The dessert was a square of poppy seed cake that tasted okay, but like it came from a mix. So there was no meat in my meal. But there were scarcely any vegetables and they rely very heavily on dairy (one of the other soup options was a cream soup). The guy at the register's English was limited (and admittedly my Slovenian is hello, please and thanks) so I couldn't get details before ordering. The good news is that all of this cost only 6 euros. And if it was to your liking you'd be plenty full for the rest of the afternoon. They do have a pretty good salad bar and you can just get a salad (a large bowl you fill as you like for 6 euros, a smaller size available as well). The outdoor seating overlooks an okay but not beautiful courtyard, nothing special to look at or be in. If you do want to check it out, here are directions: walk out of the main square (the one with the statue of a poet holding a book in his hand and a half naked woman/muse hovering over him) toward the salmon-colored huge church. Look for a sign on your right that says Gallerija Emporium. Take a right down that street. Look for the number 10, posted on the wall, then look across the street and walk through that arch. You'll see the yellow sign for the restaurant.
