Heritage – Petrinjska ul. 14
With all the drama we went through today, we were in desperate need for some good food and good vibes. Heritage was on our list as it was down for cheap eats, as well as being traditional food in Croatia. Only a 14 minutes walk from our AirBnb, this was the prefect spot, opting to sit outside and enjoy the sunlight while it’s still out.
The best of traditional delicacy in one bite. Heritage is all about having their groceries and products made in Croatia. They are trying to encourage small companies and local farmers to get involved, so they can proudly say that major part of their ingredients are coming from rural areas.
We both decided to share the olives and cheese to start with, even the wild oregano was hand picked by one of the workers mother. The bread was warm and matched perfectly with the olive oil.
For mains we got two of their whole flat bread dishes, again another way of presenting traditional foods in a modern way. This is the concept behind everything that they serve here in a successful attempt to show diversity in Croatia’s gastronomy, and appeal to numerous audiences.
To end our meal, our lovely waitress offered if we wanted to sample their blackcurrant dessert wine and it was so good! It was exactly like you’d imagine a very sweet strong wine taste, but it was good and helped us decide if we wanted dessert for ourselves and with that we shared a forest fruit ice cream, which was vegan, gluten free and sugar free.
The meal as a whole and the atmosphere from the workers was exactly what we needed and had perked us up for what we had left of the day.
