First of all, who doesn’t want to eat at a restaurant called Ding Dong – am I right?
I requested a table here via their Facebook page at short notice and they replied instantly to confirm. When we arrived our names were written on a beautiful outdoor theatre style table for two, looking down the steps to the busy streets below. The waiter was extremely helpful and recommended the perfect Croatian wine to accompany our food choices. We grazed on pork dumplings and for our main course we shared a dish of Bibimbap. If you’ve never had it, it’s a bowl of mixed rice, meat and vegetables with soy and chilli sauces, topped with a fried egg. Ours all came separately meaning we could mix our own combination. The trick, we were expertly told, was to mix it all up before eating and then wash it down with cold cucumber soup.
I cannot tell you how delicious this meal was and how much we both enjoyed it!
Oyster and Sushi Bar Bota
My husband doesn’t jump for joy at the prospect of sushi but even he had to admit that this was pretty epic. It wasn’t cheap, but I’m not sure good sushi ever should be? There is however always a caveat with sushi (both the good and the bad) – maybe don’t go for this as a meal option if you’re absolutely starving hungry. We ate here on our first night after a day of travelling so we were a little all over the place and looking for more of a light meal or snack. The Mango Roll and Agemaky Fantasy were divine.
We were looking for somewhere to hang out close to our Airbnb as we arrived in the city before check in. We had a lovely early lunch at Pizzeria Tobasco – we were really ravenous after an early morning flight and this place really fit the bill. The beers were cold and the pizza was scrumptious. It’s outside the city walls so the price was reasonable and the portions were large.
Also known as ‘the hole-in-the-wall’, if you’re not looking for it you will miss it. An unmistakable spot that serves coffee, cocktails or beers, with a view to die for. The only reason it gets 4/5 is they don’t serve ice, but that’s literally because the bar is carved into the rock face and space is limited.
Hidden behind Fort Lovrijenac aka ‘Kings Landing’ this tiny cove comes complete with a beach bar that has swings. You get to drink beer, on a swing, in Kings Landing. Come on!
