What our chefs had
We started with homemade breadsticks, nice and crunchy., served with a knob of butter.
Our first dish was tempura zucchini flowers filled with beetroot tartare and basil. The dish was nicely balanced, with great texture, it opens with a satisfying crunch followed by a herby, almost sweet aroma.
Next, we had an Adriatic tuna steak, rolled in sesame seeds and perfectly pink and juicy on the inside. Sesame complemented the dish without overpowering them. The cornbread cream served with the tune complimented the gentle aromas of the dish.
We concluded our visit to Dubravkin put with an interesting selection of Croatian cheeses varying from young and mild to mature and strong.
