ZAGREB, 10 December 2019 – A brand new Japanese restaurant has opened its doors in the heart of downtown Zagreb. 

Franko’s Street, which serves sushi and other Japanese dishes, has opened on Augusta Cesarca street in Ban centar on European square, just a few metres from Ban Jelacic square.

The restaurant is owned by Fran Zupic and is an extension of the Franko’s brand. Earlier this year Zupic opened the popular Franko’s pizza & bar restaurant on Branimir street.

The menu at Franko’s Street has been created by chef consultant Vid Nikolic and chef Goran Kunce, who was the chef at Japanese fusion restaurant Matsunoki on the island of Losinj.

JAPANESE FOOD, COFFEE AND BREAKFAST

The menu features Japanese specialties, with Adriatic tuna Kali one of the main ingredients. “It is in all dishes, including poke, which is additionally enriched with large Kvarner prawn tartar,” say the owners, adding that all ingredients, where possible, will be sourced from local producers.
