Croatia: Pekarna Dalmatinka

For some reason, everywhere I went in Croatia and no matter which bakery I was in, taking photos was forbidden.  A lot of these bakeries don’t have an online presence so perhaps its a way to fight off the competition, I don’t know but its really too bad because I loved the bakeries in Croatia.  A bit different from the traditional bakeries that tend to offer sweeter pastries, in Croatia, I found more savoury pastries dominating the shelves.  In Zadar, we popped into Pekarna Dalmatinka just located inside the Land Gate on the main strip.  My favourite pastries were the ones stuffed with sir (Croatian cheese), there’s a sourness and tanginess in their cheese that just made it so addictive.  And the pastry itself, looked like phyllo but the texture was very different especially in the baklava.  Although I liked the flavour in the baklava, filled with lots of walnut and honey, the texture was definitely too soft for my liking – however, for $1 CAD for a sizeable slice it was a great deal 🙂

    It's to scare off the customers, not competition. Croatian logic :)
