The ultimate Ljubljana drunk food, Hot Horse has been fortifying partiers for a long night out and a sloppy stagger home for over a decade now. Their specialty? Horse burgers. As in horse meat in a bun. People love it (hear them whinny with pleasure) and you will too, granted you're not a vegetarian or equestrian lover. So wildly successful has been this late night food stand that they've opened three other locations after the Tivoli Park original (on Miklosiceva, Trubarjeva, and in BTC City). The best part (besides it being super cheap and open until 6am)? Horse meat is purportedly good for you: high in protein, low in fat and gives you energy or something. Have we mentioned 'delicious'? Look this gift horse into your mouth...

Shame on you horse eaters :(

Not all Slovenians love horsemeat. It is not a traditional choice of meat, in fact it only recently became a trend due to tireless advertisement. I has been frowned upon for centuries (a horse was considered a noble creature) but became more widely consumed after ww2 as a result of food shortage, especially in larger cities (Ljubljana). Unfortunately it became a tourist attraction.

Janko, we did not change suppliers and I can assure our quality remains top class. All the others, thank you for your compliments, we try to do our best!

It used to be so good but then they changed suppliers and it's not that good anymore, actually I don't think I will eat one again.

I couldn't resist. @Mary, You're more than welcome to come and eat our kangaroos in Australia. We package them and sell them in the supermarket.

I apology for mary's crazy comment.. mary seems to be a "pollitically correct" naive USA girlie.... mary can not understand eating horses. mary seems too srupid and thinks horses are US-Animals and other "barbarian" countries are eating them.... Mary. different countries different habbits, marry accept that. OK? BTW - i do NOT eat horse meat.

I was very skeptical of this place, but upon a drunk outing I gave it a try, and I must admit, horse burgers are delicious!
Keith from United Kingdom Reply
Awesome horse burgers. Grab one and eat one whilst you are walking - 'on the hoof' - so to speak.
Martky B from United Kingdom Reply
There's only one way to eat your horse - hot! Actually, it tastes really good!

With your choice of sauces (mayo, mustard, ketchup, nacho cheese, tabasco) and fixings (sauerkraut, onions, tomatoes)!

mmm...all over my face and shirt, I love it!
Jeanette from Latvia Reply
The burgers are massive, I can only eat half of one. They also have salads, desserts and fruit, none of which have horse as an ingredient (so far as I know)...
John from United States Reply
Basically tastes like a good steak. Screw riding them, I can't look at a horse anymore without wanting to eat it...
Drago from United States Reply
I love horse burgers! I can't go through Tivoli without eating one, which essentially nullifies the exercise I'm supposed to be getting in the park...oh well--it's worth it! Everyone should try one!
