Description: Hot'Horse is the home of world's first & only original Horseburger, celebrating 20th anniversary! Our goal is to offer new, tasty and high quality horse meat product with high nutritional value that would also be affordable and fresh practically 24 hours a day. Hot'Horse brand has become a concept of quality horse meat burger and has popularized horse meat fast food both in Slovenia and abroad. It's a must-try food for everyone visiting Ljubljana and Slovenia.

I am Slovenian and ate once horse burger at the same place.

First of all let me clearify some things. Slovenians like horse meat and it is a kind of meat which is expensiver than cow, chicken meat etc. For us it does not represent a problem, but I can understand that some nations consider eating horse meat as Slovenians consider eating dog's meat. :-(

I think this might be a reason for not so good rate of the Horse Burger in Ljubljana. But I accept his/her personal valuation.

We are renting our apartment close to this place and some of our guests went to eat horse burger and all said it was good and tasty. One also recommended this Horse Burger in our Guest Book.

And to come back at the start. To me horse burger at this place is allmost the same as any "normal" burger. No big difference.

So, try it and rate it here. I think this place is opened until midnight so it could be place to save you being hungry.

I have to admit I was excited when I heard there was a fast-food joint in Ljubljana that specialized in horse burgers - so excited that I trekked out there on my very first night in the city. And boy, did I ever gallop away in disgust.

The horsemeat patties were sitting in a pool of grease under a hot lamp, and unceremoniously placed in a plain bun and foil wrapping. I eagerly unwrapped it, bit into it, and nearly spat it out. It didn't taste like chicken, it didn't taste like any other meat I had ever tried before. In fact, it didn't even taste like meat. Nor even food, for that matter. I attempted two more bites before tossing it in the garbage.

Of course, if you're drunk and you need a munchie you probably won't care much about what you're eating. However, if you are trying to determine if it's worth trying out on a sober occasion, I'd recommend hoofing it elsewhere.

The finest apres-clubbing burger on earth. Get that bad boy with all the fixings, including jalapenos.

Got a problem with eating horseflesh? Just say neigh!
