December. 17, 2020 – The holidays may look a bit different this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find ways to enjoy the magic of the season safely. One way is with Split Advent to-go!
With the current government restrictions in force, which have closed restaurants, bars, and cafes until further notice, it’s been challenging to enjoy Split Advent as we know it. However, these difficult times have forced catering facilities to get creative, and festive food and drink pick-up points outside our usually popular Split restaurant locations seems to be the way forward.
Over the last week, a handful of Split restaurants have announced pick-up points, dressed up in Christmas decorations, where you can indulge in to-go versions of your favorite Advent fare, mulled wine, hot gin, and restaurant classics, all while admiring the twinkling lights around the city.
Start at the top of the Riva at Terminal. F, whose food offer includes everything from homemade sausages, creamy taquitos, and meaty sandwiches to churros, cannolis, and fritule. If you’re thirsty, there is mulled wine, hot gin, and Somersby apple punch, in addition to a selection of rakija shooters.
At the end of the Riva and on your way to the West Coast is Dujkin Dvor, where you can find fritters, sausages, cod, mulled wine, coffee, rum punch, and tea. And you can also drop off your letters to Santa!
Because everyone’s favorite steakhouse in Split couldn’t hold out, either. Make your way up Marmontova and turn left at Chops Grill for coconut hot gin, Jager Meister Scharf punch, or Christmas gin tonic. But that’s not all – there is a selection of bites, from hot dogs to savory croissants, cod, sausages, and eggburgers!
Just around the corner from Chops is Articok, with an extensive menu at their restaurant pick-up point. From a selection of soups to goulash, rabbit gnocchi, tripe, ravioli, cod, and cannoli, this is only part of what Articok has to offer!
With coffee-to-go from 9 am and mulled wine, hot gin, tea, beer, lasagna, gnocchi, cod, risotto, and more from the afternoon, Corto Maltese’s pick-up point is up and running for all your to-go needs!
Bokeria Kitchen & Wine (Jingles)
One of Split’s most popular restaurants has promised to bring the holiday spirit to the city with a festive pick-up point outside their famous location. Available on Wolt, too, Bokeria has prepared caesar salad, beef tartare, fish tacos, burgers, black risotto, and, of course, bakalar, wine, and more!
Feel like street-food-style pierogies? Hot pelinkovac (made from four types of Pelinkovac, homemade tangerine marmalade, ginger, apple, citrus, and spices)? Beetroot soup? Bolognese? Or fresh juices? Look no further, as you can have it all at Bon Vivant!
Pick-up points are a great way to safely enjoy the culinary pearls of Split while admiring the twinkling lights of Advent.
