The Filo Dough Legend

Did you know that the fancy Austrian strudel and the not so glamorous Balkan burek are both made with filo dough? Andrea introduces us to the wonderful but complicated world of filo dough delights, all spiced up with a few dashes of gastronomical geopolitics.

WineOS - festival vina, delicija i ugodnog življenja

Osijek nam je početkom prosinca ponudio novu enogastro manifestaciju - WineOS. Festival međunarodnog karaktera okupio je nešto više od 50 izlagača u dva dana. Broj ljudi povećavao se sukladno dobu dana, tako da je večer bila najposjećenija...

Starting out at the forefront of the currently burgeoning Zagreb burger scene a couple of years ago, Rougemarin, set in a former socialist light bulb factory, has become known as the definitive place to go to have a juicy slob of minced beef (with duck fat!). While I thought the burgers were good, I was generally not as impressed, mostly because I felt they lacked a bit of sweet lovin' juicy. The rest of the menu, however, completely made up for it: modern Croatian and/or exotic interpretations of traditional recipes such as roast chicken with soft "basa" cheese from rural Lika or butterscotch glazed pork loin with mushroom and truffle polenta and cardamom scented yoghurt. Mouthwatering. The dessert section of the menu is still a bit conservative, but it's getting there. The wine list is good; the place looks cool and industrial; their ingredients are locally sourced. They even have artisan mini-burger nights and guest starring chefs every once in a while. Meaning - go for the burgers, stay for the chestnut puree and rosemary-flavored pears.

Kada je prije sada skoro već 3 godine Ana Ugarković u jednom haustoru u Vlaškoj otvorila Mali bar, to dvorište nije ličilo na bogznakaj. Dapače, bilo je pomalo odbojno i u njemu je jedina svijetla točka bila neobična zgrada u koju su se smjestili Anin Mali Bar i Jopovi Karijola i Wine bar. Nakon toga stigla je Vintesa i pomalo počela tražiti svoje mjesto na zagrebačkoj vinskoj sceni. Mala, nepretenciozna vinoteka polagano je postala dnevni boravak za mnoge vinoljupce. Odabir vina sve je bolji i sve precizniji, a predstavljanja i druženja su baš poput tih vina koja nude: u ograničenim količinama, dobar value for money s ponekim izvrsnim iznenađenjem. S dolaskom novog lijepog hostela, ovo dvorište pokazalo nam je kako mogu izgledati i živjeti zagrebački skriveni kutci. Ugodno i primamljivo.

I finally know what to tell first-time visitors in Zagreb when they ask where they can get their greens: at Nishta. A nice interior, helpful staff whose Balkan English just adds to the charm and filling portions of innovative veggie combinations. All in all, a delicious bargain. The chickpea burgers blew my mind and our vegetarian guest now regrets not living in Zagreb. And he's French - you know how critical they get!

As the friendly but unintrusive service ushers you onto the beautiful terrace of this "cove-restaurant", you will feel helpless before what they have to offer - fresh and affordable fish and bizarrely red Hvar wine. Once you round things up with the complimentary rakija, you'll either be ready for a quick hazardous swim on the nearby beach or a food coma. We missed the famous gregada, so there's another reason to come back.

Oduševljava me činjenica da se na hrvatskoj pjenušavoj sceni pojavljuje sve više proizvođača koji rade odlične pjenušce, ali Misal zauzima posebno mjesto među svim mjehurićima. Sestre Peršurić ozbiljno shvaćaju posao, svaki korak u procesu proizvodnje pomno prate i nadziru (dapače, vidjeli smo bilježnicu u kojoj bilježe sve, al doslovce sve što se dešava u vinariji). I rezultat su predivni pjenušci od kojih moram izdvojiti meni najdraži Blanc de Blancs, sa čarobnim perlama, elegantnim i osebujnim okusom, a nakon njega definitvno Istra, pjenušac proizveden od tri različita godišta malvazije, totalno drugačiji od svih Misalovih pjenušaca.
