Market street food & drinks is a charming restaurant centrally located on Zagreb's Gundulićeva Street, just 10 minutes by foot from Ban Josip Jelačić Square. 

Here's what tasty treats await on Market's new seasonal autumn menu.

Daily soup

Expect a different soup at the restaurant depending on that day's offer at nearby Dolac Marketplace.

They've already started strong with a hearty and unique paprika soup - so be ready for more soupy deliciousness to come.

Jazzed-up falafel

This tasty new vegetarian dish consists of falafel balls with yogurt sauce and salad.

It can be ordered as a 100% vegan option, as well - with yogurt-free sauce.

Crispy-on-the-outside falafel which is soft on the inside is served alongside a spicy and refreshing salad. This can be enjoyed as an appetizer or entree.

Deboned chicken drumstick and shank with mlinci (traditional Zagreb-style pasta) is a classic dish which Market gives an autumnal twist: purple cabbage cream.

Risotto with beef cheeks

Market debuted a risotto with slow-roasted beef cheeks, baked apple puree and pickled radishes at the YES Feel Good Festival on Strossmayer Square.

Due to popular demand, the dish has now found its place on the restaurant's fall menu.

Beef shank stew with dumplings

Beef shank stew with hunter (lovački) dumplings, portobello mushrooms, and pumpkin cream is Market's most complex autumn menu item.

Flavours combine to form a rich dish: heartiness from the beef shank and mushroom stew blends with sweet pumpkin and airy dumplings.

White fish fillet with cream and broccoli

Cauliflower cream and sautéed broccoli are paired with a fresh white fish fillet. 

The exact fish you get will depend on the availability at Dolac, but common choices are gilthead sea bream or sea bass.
