Arguably the best bistro in the city, Pod Zidom has taken its marvelous menu a step further by rolling out a few never-before-seen meals, newly available as of last week. We spoke to Pod Zidom's own Marijana Zlomislić; here's the scoop.
New dishes: Tastebuds of Zagreb, delight
"As the seasons change, Pod Zidom slightly tweaks its menu", Marijana tells us. And this should come as no surprise, since Pod Zidom is idyllically located between the Zagreb Cathedral and Dolac Market (aka, the stomach of Zagreb).
"The chefs go to Dolac every single morning. Each has their own go-to producers, from kumice (this is a Croatian term of endearment for the older ladies who tirelessly supply Zagreb with their fresh fruits and veggies year-round), to meat sellers. Everything is tried and true."
This fall, new twists have been added to the Pod Zidom menu, with a focus on seasonality. We're bringing you the lowdown on some of these nectar-like newcomers.
One thing you'll definitely savour is Pod Zidom's new marinated wild white fish, served with mandarin, pomegranate, and fennel. "The species of wild fish depends on the morning catch on Dolac", Marijana notes.
This is wild Adriatic fish (which also depends on the catch of the day, of course) with chestnut cream, bisque, and raštika, vitamin-packed collard native to Dalmatia.
