The Srijem Breakfast, which TCN introduced to our readers a few months ago, has made its way to the center of Zagreb. The now popular breakfast arrived to the Croatian capital straight from Ilok, from the well-known Danube hotel, which is the proud owner of a Michelin recommendation.
With the desire to make the traditional foods of Eastern Croatia an integral part of the tourist offer on the coast and continent, the Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Board created the ‘Srijem Breakfast’. During the peak of the tourist season, the idea was first successfully presented at the King Kresimir Heritage Hotel in Šibenik, followed by the promotion of the concept in Zagreb.
Krvavica (blood sausages), švargl, bratwurst, kulen, kulenova seka, walnuts, goat and more were showcased as the finest Srijem delicacies at the Mimara atrium in front of more than 110 members of the International Women’s Club, reports HRTurizam on November 16, 2018.
“Srijem and Slavonia are known for its traditional cuisine and dining rooms which, due to the colors, the tastes and the scents, should become an integral part of the eno-gastro offer of Croatian restaurants and hotels, especially those focusing on a top gourmet experience,” said Rujana Bušić Srpak, director of the Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Board, who wondered why we couldn’t replace the usual international breakfast with the original and proven quality foods coming from Srijem and Slavonian OPGs?
This was exactly what the Catering Team Majetić did to become the first in Zagreb to include the Srijem Breakfast in their offer.
“Breakfast has become high in demand in recent years, and many of our clients insist on a traditional offer from Croatia. We chose a Srijem Breakfast that is extremely rich, varied and most importantly tasty,” says Vedran Hercigonj Majetić, the owner of Catering Team Majetić.
“The meal speaks more than words, and our mission is to make you happy with the food,” concluded Zeljko Kovčalija, owner of the Danube Hotel in Ilok. The unique cuisine was even confirmed by Nigerian Akuoma Helen Boromis, president of the International Women’s Club who permanently resides in Samobor.
“I enjoyed the Srijem Breakfast. I especially like the kulen and sausages with cabbage. After you taste these great dishes that reflect the tradition of Eastern Croatia, you want to visit the cities and places of Srijem and Slavonia the first chance you get,” concluded Boromis.
