36 Hours in Zagreb

IMG_4157Its easy to overlook the capital once you look at the rest of Croatia, but you need to fly home from somewhere.  Two nights, one full day is a good amount of time to see the sights, most of which from a compact center.  By this stage of the trip, food research fatigue took over.  But we still managed to sneak in a good final meal

The main cathedral is striking as expected.  As was St Mark’s church and its unique tiled roof.  The Museum of Broken Relationship was intriguing but I got bored quickly.  Fortunately Mrs Ziggy was as well, so no museum donations were in store for us!  I did spend more time in the Dolac market than I’d like to admit.  Those European markets just never cease to amaze.

We didnt think we’ll have the time for Mirogoj Cemetery, but we managed.  It turned out to be the highlight, especially once I found Drazen Petrovic’s grave (that was a tough one).  But the most moving moment came from the scene at Stone Gate.  Back in the day a painting of Virgin Mary with baby Jesus survived a devastating fire and major damage to the gate.  So an odd looking shrine build inside the gate, where many locals go to pray and light candles.

The best and only meal worthy of mention came from a place called Kod Pere, which happened to be right next door to our apartment (Feels Like Home Apartments).   The environment is that of a comfortable, seemingly popular, regular restaurant.  But there’s nothing regular about its menu (according to locals).  You essentially eat traditional specialties grandma and her family assistants are cooking that day.  The Last of this kind I’m told.  Everything was done with care and quite delicious, especially the crepes for dessert.

Chelsea Lately Mini Update

Cull and Pistol CounterThe burning question.  In the midst of all that madness, what exactly should I look for in this Zombie infested former Nabisco factory.  I added a couple of names for 2017 without feeling the need to change anything else.  This is just mostly a fresh reminder since I’m constantly being asked by people.  What should I target in Chelsea Market…

Provo Random

Our thoughts are with Provo and the rest of the Turks and Caicos islands today.
I’ve never watched the weather channel before today. I didnt even know what channel it is. Today we are watching it nonstop and I’m just sick to my stomach. Hang in there everyone, and stay safe.

Eating With Ziggy

Five Hellish Quickies

IvanThis month on Hell’s Kitchen’s unofficial official magazine W42st, the theme is… ok, I dont really remember.  I’m pretty sure the theme is not quickies, but sounds like it should be one of these days.  I try, but sometimes I just cant match the Eatlists with the theme.  If for example the theme is The Kardashians (it could happen), I would have a hard time coming up with related recommendations, other than maybe Casellula, home of the pig’s ass sandwich.

The list this time is snacks.  And the good news this month is that I dont have to copy and paste the Eatlist anymore.  You can just read them here.  Or pick up a copy at your favorite Hell’s Kitchen barber, restaurant, and tarot card dealer.

And you can see the rest of the Eatlists here.  Just ignore the pussy…
