4 yummy dishes you absolutely have to try in Split
Split is known for its pristine beaches, clear water and incredible medieval fortress. But within these walls lies my number one reason why Split has stolen a place in my heart: The Dalmatian Cuisine. Here are four of the top foods that are a must try when in Split.
These little donut balls are what dreams are made off. Served in a simple plastic cup, you can choose to smother them in Nutella or melted Chocolate (Milk or White). A cup and topping will set you back 20HRK ($4AUD). The stall is located at the end of the wharf, closest to the Old Quarter.
Once a part of Italy, it is unsurprising that Dalmatian cuisine mirrors that of Italy. Black Risotto is a seafood dish that gets its dark colour from cuttlefish ink! This dish is easy to find across many restaurants in Split and will set you back around 100HKR ($20AUD). This dish may look a little odd but it sure does taste good!
On the topic of seafood, I couldn’t go past the opportunity to try fresh seafood from caught from the Adriatic Sea. There was so much to choose from on the menu and all at really affordable prices in comparison to what we pay in Australia. I opted to try the speciality “Green Pasta” which was a simple but delicious dish combining butter, pasta and crustaceans. Serving sizes were large and it was enough for two people.
Sendvic Rolani (Wraps)
Split is small enough to walk from end to end without using public transport. And with all this exercise, fuelling is crucial. Throughout Split, you will find many quaint bakeries with your “To-go” essentials. Sendvic Rolani are incredible wraps served warm and fresh. I opted for the chicken which included salad (because health) and ranch sauce (because taste). Depending on the location of the Bakery, one of these bad boys will set you back 20-40hkr ($4-8AUD).
