Total Split is delighted to introduce our readers to Silk, a spicy new addition to the Split restaurant scene. 

Split is bursting at the seams with new restaurants this season, but one addition, in particular, is delivering a different kind of flavor explosion to the Dalmatian capital – Silk Street Food. 

The name might be familiar to some of you already, and that’s no coincidence – if you’ve visited the island of Korčula, you’ve most likely stumbled upon the original Silk location which opened in 2016. Fitting for the birthplace of Marco Polo, our famous explorer who was no stranger to the flavors of the East. 

After Silk quickly stole the hearts of Asian food connoisseurs and tourists who craved a break from Croatian carb-loaded feasts, the established and trusted street food eatery decided that bringing the flavors of Asia to Dalmatia’s bustling city of Split was the only way, and boy are we glad that they did.

Although they opened their doors a few days ago, Silk officially inaugurated their Split location with a tasting party on Tuesday, June 19, which Total Split was delighted to join.

Located just off of Marmontova on Tončićeva Ulica 4, Silk’s kickoff was loaded with Split’s best-known bon vivants who brought a new life to the otherwise quiet alleyway. Silk’s hip outdoor seating and perfectly crafted Asian-inspired interior make you feel as if you’re in a trendy New York City eatery or at San Francisco’s Li Po Lounge, which was made even more famous by the visit of Anthony Bourdain.

Silk’s simple details, vibrant murals, and funky lighting create a city atmosphere the people of Split had not experienced until now – and Split, we think Silk looks good on you.

In addition to the endlessly flowing champagne and rosé, Silk’s chefs rolled out bites of their most popular menu items including the chicken gyoza, vegetable spring rolls, crispy baby squid with lime and red chili, chicken karaage (with out of this world plum mayo), seared duck salad, kim chi fried rice, and red curry.

To say that it is authentic would be an understatement – it is even better. The partygoers rushed to the serving trays so fast, it was difficult to grab any proper photos.

Overall, Silk offers a wide variety of Asian favorites including miso soup, Pad Thai, crispy Peking duck, chicken katsu, Hong Kong style udon, and crispy pork belly, while enticing menu items such as the sea bass and mango ceviche or the grilled octopus and shaved veggie salad will have you coming back for seconds – and thirds.
