Atelier Køkken's main focus will be breakfasts and brunches, although it will also be open in the evening. Evening meals will consist of options like open sandwiches. The restaurant will be dedicated to organic produce, both food and drinks, with the owners' goals intended to be on sustainable and healthy living. Rest assured, that also means tasty! And, you can try a sample of their foods right now for proof!Atelier Køkken are debuting their take on Scandinavian cuisine at this year's Advent in Zagreb. At their outlet on Strossmayer Square, the kitchen are offering eye-catching pink sausages in a hot dog bun. The sausage is comprised of veal and pork and is served with breadcrumbs, ketchup and mustard. Other Scandinavian seasonal offerings at the outlet are traditional drinks; one is a spicy mulled wine, which stands apart from other hot wines available because of the specific spicing, the other is a delicious spiced milk drink which is a warming yellow in colour.
Croatia's first Nepalese restaurant opens in Zagreb's Kaptol
Budget food and another international cuisine to scratch from your checklist await if you step over the threshold of Bistro Himalayan Curry in Zagreb's Upper Town.

This new Nepalese restaurant in Kaptol has a pocket-friendly menu that spans all three. Yet to be reviewed by Time Out, the menu seems to offer a lot - traditional Croatian dishes also feature alongside the momos and Karahi chicken. Try it at Kaptol 18.
