Zalogajcek - Vegetarian food in Croatia... Jul 10, 2008
(update - I think it's gone now, I didn't see it there this year...)
You wouldn't even notice this place in California, but in a land of whole lambs turning on spits, and where ordering "ne meso, molim" (without meat please) gets you chicken instead of pork... this is a rarity. The little restaurant and patio serves up dishes from containers displayed in a little "ice cream counter". Entrees, sauces, bread, and sides are sold separately, so you assemble your own dishes and meals.
Items are plain, potatoes, boiled carrots, cabbage, and other vegetables with sauces like tomato, mushroom, and spinach. I tried fried eggplant with a side of mushroom and leek sauce and shared a salad of cut cucumbers, red peppers and carrots. Good, but plain; much better once salt and pepper were added. I'll have to try other dishes next time. Dining was on a little patio in an opening between shops off of the main square, quite and enjoyable in the morning with the usual chorus of Varazin church bells in the background.
