Great civilizations which have passed through Ulcinj did not only affect the traditional occupations like seafaring and olive growing, but they also shaped the versatile cuisine of this area, which can be called Ulcinj cuisine because of its local peculiarities.

The strong cult of hospitality has always been preserved in Ulcinj: the guest is offered the best food and drinks, he is seated at the most dominating place around the table, whereas the hosts keep trying to make his stay at their home or restaurant to be as pleasant as possible.
