Split Riviera cuisine is part of Mediterranean cuisine, which primarily means a host of dishes made from tasty white fish, cheese, ham (prosciutto) and various meat specialities. Animals that have grazed on pasturelands rich in minerals produce meat with a special aroma. As well as the eating places on Split Riviera, we should not forget to mention local restaurants in the Varoš quarter of Split, in the city centre, with their original specialities.
