Average Reviews


Goulash is a traditional specialty from Hungary, but we also like to prepare it in our native Slovenia, as it is a very tasty dish that satisfies even the most demanding stomachs. This dish is also extremely welcome on restaurant tables, and the rule applies that goulash is the best there, as it is cooked for a long time and in large quantities.

On Slovenian ground, the goulash with »ptujski lük« is certainly among the best. Goulash with »ptujski lük« is a specialty prepared at our restaurant called Gostilna Muršič in beautiful old town Ptuj.

For those of you who are wondering what »ptujski lük« is, let’s first say a few words about this protected food product. »Ptujski lük«is a Slovenian variety of onion and an old name for onion. It has been grown in fields arounf Ptuj for more than two hundred years and has a special appearance and taste, which is why it has acquired the protected geographical indication label. »Ptujski lük« is unique, because there is no other variety or hybrid in Slovenia that is so similar to »ptujski lük« that it could be confused with it.

»Lüfkars« from fields around Ptuj have preserved the tradition of three-year cultivation of this special type of onion until today. As in the past, it is grown today in a nature-friendly integrated or organic way, which guarantees the high quality of its fruits. In accordance with the long history of cultivation, many customs, traditional dishes (including goulash with »ptujski lük« and the architecture of houses adapted for drying this type of onion) have been developed and preserved in these places. The uniqueness of »Ptujski lük« is manifested in the heart-shaped medium-sized shape, red-brown color of dry leaves and white and purple-red color of the flesh. The advantage of this onion variety is long-term storage, excellent quality, excellent cooking properties and a moderately sharp taste that gives dishes an exceptional taste.
