Best of Croatian Ice Cream

By Wednesday, July 25, 2012 , , , , , ,

Ice cream. What's not to love? Imagine an cold creamy sweet liquor sliding down your throat, cooling that internal inferno caused by our sweltering and humid environment. Ahh. We do have pretty decent ice cream in Singapore, but Croatian ice cream? They blew me away with their intensity in flavor, the smoothness in texture and generosity in their servings. Is it better than Italian Gelato? I'll leave it to you to find out. Travel to Croatia, try them and then let me know. ;) Here is my Best of Croatian Ice Cream list! Definitely amongst the Best Ice Cream in Europe.

Masarykova 4, Zagreb Upper Town, Croatia
This was a stumbled upon but it turned out to be a well known slado establishment in Zagreb. Long time favorite place for pancakes and other sweet temptations, Slastičarna Zagreb was refurbished in 2011 and is now one of the swankier city-centre spots for a little (or not so little) desserts indulgence.
Huge servings of Croatian ice cream (slado). Slastičarnica Zagreb does these interesting sundae creations that we couldn't get enough of. Individual scoops are merely priced at 7KN (1Euro or S$1.40).

Zadar- Slastičarna Donat Review
Trg. Sv Stosije 4,  Zadar 23000, Croatia
Located just around the corner of the St. Donat lies this famous slado parlor, reputed to have the best ice cream in Zadar. People know them from all around ice cream crazy Dalmatia due to their creative flavors and funny (sarcastic is my funny) scoopers. We had 2 scoops each per day when we were here. Go figure.
Split- Nameless
Round the corner from Kružičeva 3, Split, Croatia

The Diocletian's Palace in Split is like a tourist trap waiting to eat you alive and tear you apart but we chanced upon some really special and homey eateries within the walls. One of which is Villa Spiza (more on this soon). The chef recommended this traditional sweets place just around the corner. Walk out from Spiza, turn right and then right at the next alley. It’s a few shops down and you would recognize it by the grumpy female owner who doesn't speak English. The chocolate ice cream is to die for.

Dubrovnik- Poklisar
Right where you can take the ferry to Lokrum Island
The ice cream in Dubrovnik is slightly more expensive at 10KN per scoop. As you walk down the main street within the Old Town, you will be assaulted by the number of slado places vying for your attention. The most generous stall is round the left corner, at the very end of the main street. But Poklisar provided us with bursts of flavors that is out of this world.
Presenting you with the Best of Croatian Ice Cream, or at least that's the best we have tried on the trip. Shall not be evil to leave you drooling without some options of good ice cream in Singapore. My top 3 favorites right here on our sunny island. Enjoy!
