Maazgoon – to Eat and to Love

A local's suggestion landed me on Maazgoon's terrace, a vibrant spot right next door to the Diocletian Palace in Split.



The crew at the restaurant is passionate about modern takes on Mediterranean dishes; food that is all about the best ingredients and, important in my book, food that hasn't been overworked, or 'touched too much'.



Go there hungry. I had some whicked tuna sashimi there, and a traditionally prepared octopus in a skillet. They paired a crisp local white with it...and off to heaven I went. My mouth is watering, just writing about it.



They have a saying at Maazgoon: 'We believe that the whole universe can fit on a plate'. Well, they sure fit a perfect week in Croatia on mine. And that's a wrap.



>>>Warm thanks to Alan Mandić from Secret Dalmatia, for organizing a truly memorable, and off the beaten path trip for our curious and insatiable group of travelers, and to the Hotel Cornaro for accommodations in Split.
