Checked out this new joint (near Bathurst and Bloor) last night. It's billed as serving authentic Croatian food and great beer from around the world. When I checked the website I noticed the food list was short offering essentially two savoury Croatian items - cevapi and pljeskavica.

I had a hankering for some cevapi and I was in the area so I figured I'd give it a shot. The establishment is essentially the first floor of a house one Euclid so it is very small with one long communal table and surrounding bar stools.

Service was pleasant but that's about all I enjoyed. I had the cevapi which at $12 was a bit pricy for the portion size. Came with warm bread, fries (oversalted), pickled onions, a dollop of sour cream, what I'm guessing was supposed to be ajvar but was a horrible rendition and some nondescript eggplant dip of sorts. The cevapi themselves were under-seasoned, didn't really taste like real cevapi (the ones at Royal Meats are MUCH better), were dry and tasted like they were probably frozen (not 100% on that one).

The online beer menu advertises Karlovacko beer but there was none to be had so I settled with a Ozujsko at $7.50.

On a positive note I liked how the place advertised their prices with taxes included. I wish more places would do that.

Wouldn't go again.
