One of my favorite places in Split, that opened this summer, is Bepa. It is basically a seafood fast food. It is based on local seafood tradition but one can also get a quality pršut sandwich or, like at this very moment, to have an interesting pumpkin dish or two. Unusual but quite interesting and quite tasty!
Bepa is located on the main square (Pjaca) and has several tables outdoors and few less inside the actual place. However, if sitting inside, please be aware that the ventilation is not the best and you will most definitely smell of fried fish…
I love their tuna burger, chilly sardines and their most amazing blueberry pie. Even though the menu is not typically local – although the owners are claiming promoting Dalmatian street food traditions – the quality of the food and the very design of all the elements, make Bepa a success.
Bepa is my first choice when I don’t want to wait for food too long!
Almost a decade ago, a similar project was attempted. It was called Srdela Snack and it failed… The problem was that it was not as modern as Bepa and the food was not as good. It was more traditional but that simply did not work in the age of MacDonald s and other fast food chains. Bepa covered the design and the menu perfectly and I wish the franchise picks up soon in other parts of Croatia!
