Hi, I’m Ana, nice to meet you! I’m a foodie from Zagreb who loves to eat well and travel often. I’ve created this blog in order to share my favorite places to eat and drink in Zagreb someplace else than just my personal Instagram.
When I travel, I keep the sightseeing to a minimum and mostly focus on discovering great places to grab a bite. I’m not that interested in Michelin star restaurants. I’m the happiest when I stumble upon a tiny food stall with only three options on the “menu”, but all three are pure perfection. I believe that you don’t need a lot of money to eat really good. But, you do have to know where to eat. Don’t get me wrong, I love fine dining, but warm soups with homemade noodles and juicy burgers are my comfort foods.
If you’re not one of the lucky few who travel for a living, your holidays are limited and you’ll probably stay in Zagreb just for a day or two. And just like anyone else, you’ll want to make the most of it. Especially when it comes to food. I’ve been eating my way through Zagreb for a while now and believe me when I say that Zagreb has a lot of hidden gems you’ll probably miss if you stick to your usual sources for restaurant recommendations. I’ve been to most of the places I write about more than a few times and I also always try to be one of the first ones to try out new places and additions on the menus.
I’m not a food critic and I don’t wish to become one. I’m merely sharing my personal experiences and hope they can help you while you’re walking around the city with a growling stomach. Taste is an entirely subjective thing so you may find your experiences to be completely different from mine. And that’s fine. We enjoy different things, we crave different foods at different times. But, I always try to be as open-minded as possible. I believe that’s the only way to truly enjoy food.
Last but not least, I always pay for my own food.
P.S. If you have a favorite place you think I should visit, let me know! I’d love to check it out!
