Croatia: Trogir

Trogir is a tiny pedestrian only island (with the exception one outer street that connects it to the mainland).  It is a medieval walled town with cobblestone alleys and walkways with a beautiful wide boardwalk with a gorgeous views.  We stopped off in Trogir to do a bit of exploring and grab lunch before heading to Split.  The boardwalk was full of restaurants that took advantage of the views.  I actually don’t remember the restaurant name however, I do remember our meal.  We ordered a few dishes to share because we wanted a bit of everything and because we were on the coast, we decided to go with freshly grilled prawns.  You could taste the smoky char on them but I must warn you, they were definitely a lot of work to peel them so I don’t recommend if you don’t like to work for your food or are short of time.  The squid ink risotto was a unique dish – I’m used to seeing homemade squid in pasta but in a risotto was a first for me.  Although it doesn’t look all that appealing, it was pretty tasty.  But the cevapi sandwich was the best dish and not because of the cevapi (even though they were flavourful) – it was the bread!  Crusty on the outside and soft/moist on the inside, I don’t know how they make it but everywhere we went the bread and pastry was just delicious!
