Croatian Cuisine

Between the Adriatic Sea and Hungary lies the Republic of Croatia. Its capital city Zagreb, is the place to be in Europe for cultural arts events, and one helluva place to get your eat on. With 21,782 square miles of lush vegetation and 49 square miles of water, it is full of tasty animals.
Typical Croatian cuisine includes lamb, veal, pork, and chicken. If seafood is your thing, then Croatia as your fishy little Heaven on Earth. You can find every sea food dish imaginable there.
The Main Course
Headed out for a bite? Head to Klub Knjizevnika (Writer’s CLub), and try the patka mlinci (duck pasta). It is a pasta dish featuring doughy homemade pasta noodles with large chunks of duck meat mixed in.
For something sweet hit up Amelie, a cozy pastry shop that is a favorite coffee stop for locals. The word around town is they make the best macaroons. They also serve Kremšnite, a custard pie with a light flaky crust. Strukli, a strudel filled with cottage cheese. And orehnjača, a rolled bread filled with walnuts.
Eating on a budget? Check out Dolac farmer’s market. There you will find loads of inexpensive ingredients and local street food. Wherever you go take the bus. Avoid the taxis. Unless you just like throwing money away.
