Demolish a hot plate of Strukli in Croatia
1.) So what is Strukli?
Strukli is a traditional Croatian dish made of cottage cheese, sour cream, eggs, and milk.It can be salty or sweet.It can also be baked or cooked, but I prefer the baked one.One can also add some Spinach or fruits too.
Strukli is a traditional Croatian dish served more often in households .The word Strukli is roughly pronounced something like sh-troo-klee).It is a large Croatian pastry but many tourists tend to compare it to lasagne.
2.) Where to eat Strukli?Zagreb the capital city of Croatia is known for serving the best Strukli in the country.I was recommended a place called “La Struk” in Zagreb which specializes in making Strukli
So one afternoon I reached La Struk in the old town and ordered a portion of Of baked Strukli. Moments later I was served a burning hot plate of melted cottage cheese and Soft dough.The first bite was enough to convince me that it was heaven.
Later I spoke to the chef of La Struk and he told me “Strukli” is a simple dish which is really easy to make.He said to me”listen KaranVeeR -Cows give you milk, hens give you eggs and we all have flour at home ” so all you have to do is bake or cook with love.
It’s filling and delicious too.
3.)Why La Struk
La struk is nestled in the medieval Skalinska Street,
The interior is divided into three parts – the main room is located outside on Skalinska Street, and the other two areas are just off the street – the main small room with four tables and the last one is a beguiling garden area with few tables.
As you try to find a seat, you will notice the dark and dowdy walls surrounding the area, don’t worry! Indeed these walls are a part of the historic medieval Kaptol fortification walls.So when you enjoy your hot plate of creamy Strukli, keep in mind that you’re sitting in a place filled with rich history.
