For the traditional south-European repertoire of grilled meats there are few better places than the ‘Glow’, a neat and welcoming seven-table restaurant just round the corner from the NK Zagreb football stadium. Succulent ćevapi and pljeskavice are the stars of the show, although lungić pork chops and vješalice (skewer-grilled strips of pork) are also well worth a try. And, unusually for this nation of carnivores, there’s a whole section of the menu devoted to grilled vegetables. Make sure you order at least one lepinja (springy home-baked bread bun) on the side.
