TRADITIONAL SPIŠ CUISINE
Wandering around the natural and historic beauty of the Spiš region will make every visitor a little bit tired. The sight of a tastefully laid table and delicious food will delight both the sight and the hungry stomach. This is the reason why many visitors stop at the Spiš Chalet in Spišské Podhradie. It has been next to the main road for decades, and it is very easy to turn from the highway and take a break here.
Food based on traditional Spiš cuisine, prepared with the finest ingredients, can be enjoyed in the traditional interior of the chalet or on the open terraces in the summer.
Over the years, the chalet has become famous for its traditional food and drinks, as well as for organizing various events. In winter, it was a Carnival pig-slaughtering with folk music and cheerful local customs. At other times, different master culinary competitions: Master Piroh and GuľašFest Branisko. In the summer the Spiš Folklore Festival which is organized in the vicinity of the chalet, is one of the oldest popular folklore festivals in Slovakia.
The Spiš chalet is not only a place to eat, but also a place to relax, especially for families with children who can get a glimpse of the beautiful scenery of the Spiš Castle and the Levoča Mountains, freely run through the green grass, or pet small domestic animals.
