Zagreb, November 4, 2022 – In the very heart of the centre of Zagreb a unique pan-Asian restaurant has opened its doors.

Silk Street Food, which brings a touch of the popular cuisine of the Far East to the Croatian metropolis, serving an incredible selection of freshly prepared dishes has opened at Masarykova 18. 

Only established chefs from Asia work in the kitchen, and the menu offers everything from sushi and gyoza, to woks and classic meat dishes such as Peking duck.

In the past few months since its opening, Silk Street Food has already established itself as a favourite destination for all lovers of Asian cuisine. 

The restaurant offers its guests only the best of Pan-Asian cuisine, thanks to the fusion of various Eastern cuisines. The menu consists of several sections – sushi, main courses, small bites and dim sum, larger bites, wok dishes and soups.

In addition, Silk Street Food also serves a variety of Asian whiskeys and gins, as well as Tsingtao, the beer of the second largest brewery in China.

The owner of the restaurant, Dennis Bandack, a Chilean with Croatian roots who resides in Switzerland, brought this restaurant concept to Zagreb after successfully operating the business in Korčula, Hvar, Split and Dubrovnik.

The idea was born out of the owner’s desire to eat a good plate of Asian food somewhere.

“Silk Street Food is a place where you can enjoy authentic Asian street food. Authentic flavours, a wide selection of dishes and a unique atmosphere that cannot be experienced anywhere else is what makes us different and what we are extremely proud of. As a true lover of Asian cuisine, I decided to pass on this love and passion to others. All our chefs come from Asia as established names, and we pay great attention to the freshness of the ingredients. For example, several times a week we carve whole tuna ourselves, while fresh salmon arrives every day,” said Denis Bandack.

The interior of the restaurant is the vision of the owner himself, and he renovated the entire space himself with his team. They were guided by combining the incompatible, so, for example, there are irresistible Japanese chairs with a massive oak table in the space.

Along with neon signs and traditional Japanese elements, the painted walls, which were created especially for Silk Street Food by painter Anita Genc, cannot go unnoticed.
