Pelegrini Revisited
Pelegrini

Bash Bash Food Bar, Vodice

I am not the biggest fan of Vodice and their vision of “tourism”. It used to be a great place some 25 – 30 years back but it is just a big mess now and I avoid it as much as I can. I also tell all my clients to stay away as there is…

Bepa – Seafood fast food

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.

Aerodrom Vis

This past summer I spent quite a bit of time on Vis and what to do but to explore and enjoy this spectacular island. One of my favorite discoveries was Aerodrom. It is gostionica or some sort of inn but now that term is rarely used as it is now almost archaic. Now you have wine…

Stari Fijaker 900 Restaurant – Zagreb

Many are modern and quite inovative but most still play it safe with either “Italian” menus or classic Croatian restaurant menus offering same octopus salad, pršut and cheese, few pasta dishes, few variations of steaks… Boring. But, in Zagreb, one can…

Macola

Coming from Zagreb to Dalmatia – back in the old days; before the highway – we were taking the very scenic road through Lika and usually making a stop in Borje in Korenica (Titova Korenica back then). Sometimes in the 90s that all changed and Macola became the one and only stop for buses, trucks,…
