Štrukli at Stari Fijaker
Thinly rolled pastry filled with cheese and covered with sour cream, štrukli is the ultimate Croatian comfort food. Whether it is boiled or baked, this signature northern dish is a perfect choice for cold, winter days. Stari Fijaker, a restaurant in the heart of Zagreb, is Petar’s top choice for sampling štrukli, not least because it evokes memories of old fairytales. “With wooden furniture and tablecloths still found in Croatian homes, one feels like an estranged cousin welcomed to the family table during a feast,” says Petar, adding that this restaurant is a place he often takes his acting colleagues to while visiting Zagreb.
