Bistro Bardot, Zagreb

Tucked in one of the small gardens in the very heart of Zagreb, Bistro Bardot is a recently opened oasis of French cuisine (and wines) in our capital city. I usually only write about Croatian restaurants but also of occasional refreshing additions to our culinary scene. So, we were looking forward to our visit to…

Best Restaurants in Croatia – Prasac restaurant, Zagreb

I won’t be writing about Wine & Gastro festival that was held a week ago in Zagreb. It was nice, crowded, with great offer, lots of great wines and… did I say it was crowded? Read more on it on Manjada’s great blog. The highlight for me was meeting in person some great and interesting…

Winter, carnival and food traditions

Few days back I got a lovely invitation from my friend Domagoj to come join his family and friends for a special carnival menu. That was also an opportunity to meet Domagoj’s good friend and already quite famous Mr. Semir Osmanagić of the Bosnian Pyramid Foundation who had an interesting speech about his latest discoveries…

Eating out in Zagreb

Unlike here in Dalmatia, Zagreb has a great offer of international restaurants. From Indian to Chinese, pasta to sushi… But, of all international cuisines, Thai food has been my favorite for a long time. Last time in Zagreb we decided to go to Opium oriental bar for some Thai tastes. Opium is located in Branimir…

Trilogija restaurant in historic part of Zagreb

Always in search of great restaurants I keep asking my friends and business partners where to go. So, recently, before going to Zagreb, my friend recommended us Trilogija restaurant in historic part of Zagreb: just next to the Kamenita vrata gate. They advertise themselves as “snack-bar” or zalogajnica (if I am translating it correctly) but…

Sunday’s Antique Fair in Zagreb

One of the places that I visit almost every time when in Zagreb is the wonderful antique/flea fair held every Sunday on Britanski trg square or, popularly called, Britanac. This is one of those beautiful, historic squares in old part of Zagreb that provides a perfect setting for this type of fair. The day was…

Ogulin – The town of fairy tales

Few weeks back I was on a business meeting in Ogulin. Never been there before 🙁 but, like many places in inner Croatia, is quite lovely and rich in history. Unfortunately, since it is not on main tourist routes, it is rarely visited and the national tourist board invests zero kuna in promotion. However, the…

Etno Gastro Festival in Biograd

Many of the local festivals come and go unnoticed. One of them was this Etno Gastro Table festival in Biograd. Not any longer. What started as a small presentation of food from inner Croatia and Dalmatia, now became one of the biggest festivals of it’s kind combining cultural heritage from all regions of Croatia. This…

Best Croatian wines – Korak

For the past few days I was in Zagreb doing some inspections and meeting friends and partners. That time a year… Although I had a fairly planned schedule and knew what I was to expect, I was not prepared for Korak wines. I have to admit that my general knowledge of Croatian wines is limited…
