Lunching in Zagreb

3 05 2016

My first lunching experience in Zagreb, Croatia turned out to be satisfying as well as surprising.  Satisfying because the food and the service at the restaurant of my choice were outstanding and surprising because the place was packed at 3 pm with multiple tables of huge families dining together in what seemed like their Sunday best.

I was shown in to the back room where a number of three-generation family groups were dining amass.

Sat down to a nice glass of Croatian white that was recommended by the young, cute waiter.

My objective was to try the "Zagreb schnitzel" but ended up having the house specialty, a schnitzel stuffed with spinach with parmesan sauce as was recommended. It was so good.

Also recommended was the side dish potato croquette which was interesting.

The potato really had the texture and may taste, too, of a doughnut.
