5 Menu Items You Cannot Try Anywhere Else in the World But in Hvar

Peka is a Dalmatian specialty, usually consisting of slow-roasted lamb or veal and vegetables. The ingredients are placed in a large, shallow pan, and then covered with a metal or clay bell. It's then placed under the hot coals of a fire and roasted for a few hours. Locals on Hvar have taken the traditional peka up a notch, and have included freshly caught octopus. This dish usually needs to be ordered in advance, up to 24 hours, but the wait is worth it! Octopus peka is considered an island delicacy.
