Another small but mighty stronghold of Split’s new gastronomy scene is owned by young spouses Sara and Toni Vrsalović. It’s based right next to the Iron or Western Gate of the Diocletian’s Palace, which was designated to be used by the Roman emperor's guard. Now, there is this contemporarily designed indoor space, beside a shady and pleasant terrace in the backyard of one of Split’s medieval palaces. Mazzgoon is named after Dalmatian word for mule (mazga), known for its never-say-die persistence. Its cuisine is also a combination of traditional regional dishes and international influences. You’ll find excellent Dalmatian brodetto, with home-made pasta from Korčula, but there is also a shrimp burger and street-food varieties. Mazzgoon is also a source of new happenings in town: its menu is also a monthly magazine called Mazzgoon Times, with news about Split’s culinary and clubbing scene. Nice touch.
