Goložec is a gastronomic Bon vivant that enjoys all the edible tastes of the world. At least a little Goložec hides in each of us, and so many Goložec people come to Vrsar that they decided to make a gastronomic festival for them - Goložece di Orsera. Of course, this was an event that we could not miss, and coming to Vrsar often means heading to one of the oldest restaurants that operate continuously on the Adriatic - restaurant Trošt. It is located in a pleasant corner of th
Until very recently, it was a privilege in Croatia to visit an international restaurant, which is not Chinese or Italian. Meanwhile, there have been many restaurants with various national cuisines and fusions, but rarely can be found an "exotic" one. Although it is often dangerous to proclaim something exotic, because the tastes and smells of some kitchens can be very familiar to domestic palate, most Croatians would say that they did not meet African cuisine. Of course, the
In the Kolodvorska Street, perhaps the longest main street in Kutina, where many cafes and shops open their doors to guests, there is also the urban centre of Kutina, King's Pub. At first it looks like a well-decorated wine bar, not the spirit of the Celtic pubs in Moslavina. The truth is somewhere halfway. Certainly, King's Pub attracts passers-by with bottles of wine on the other side of the window, behind which the guests smile satisfied in the interior of the restaurant.
Riva Boduli is historically one of the major docklands in Port of Rijeka. For hundreds of years, it was a place where ships were loaded and unloaded, while in the background still vibrates the main Rijeka’s market. This market is simply called Placa, a Slavic version of ever-present European name for a town’s belly: Piazza in Italian or Platz in German, all meaning (market)square. Both Italian and German influence is traceable, in cuisine and architecture, lifestyle and herit
Once it was the Zadar's port, near the monumental Porta Terraferma built by Michele Sanmicheli in the 16th century. Today, Foša is the brand name of a famous Zadar's fish restaurant which has recently gone through a modernisation of both its interior and its staff. A reason enough for us to visit one of the very few Croatian restaurants included in the prestigious Jeunes Restaurateurs. Deliberately, we came there in the beginning of November, not only to have peace from the r
He paints, makes wine, cooks Slavonian foods, prepares peka, and is in love with Plešivica. All of this is one man, Mr Martin Petrović, the owner and manager of the Vinska kuća Jana (Wine House Jana) in Prodin Dol. In the enchanting surrounding of vineyards and forests, on the high slopes of the Plešivica Hill, he welcomes guests for excellent foods and accommodation. When we phoned him, announcing our arrival, he didn't hesitate to offer us three or four specialities of the
It is a rare treat to pick behind the kitchen’s door in a splendid restaurant. We tend to enjoy fine dining in a peaceful setting of a rural gastronomy point, enjoying the tastes and aromas of culinary heritage, and thanking the chef that has just arrived from kitchen with a quite clean apron. Seldom do we think of the kitchen place and food preparing, those nitty-gritty stuff that makes a cook’s everyday business. But when one enters this realm, one cannot separate creative
