My name is Tatjana Mustac and I am a native of Queens, NY. I am a PreMedical student at Queens College, CUNY. I have Celiac Disease and I am a College Ambassador with Nima. I enjoy exploring and trying new restaurants with my Nima Sensor. As per my diet, I am: gluten free, dairy free and plant based for the most part. However, when going out to eat, I enjoy different meals as long as they are Celiac safe.

In this #nimatested guide, I explored the cities of Split and Trogir, Croatia for a day! Enjoy!

Toto’s Burger Bar

Review: After hearing there was a restaurant that offered gluten-free buns for burgers, I immediately knew I had to visit. Upon visiting both my Nima and I were very disappointed! While waiting for my burger, I knew it was not going to be truly gluten-free. The burgers were all being made in the same area and the staff was not changing gloves or taking proper precautions to prevent cross contamination. When speaking with staff, they did not seem to care either. It really felt like they were advertising gluten-free buns to make more money. Unfortunately, I do not recommend. 

Amfora Pizza

Review: After a long day of exploring, I was eager to try Amfora’s gluten-free pizza. Despite being advertised as celiac safe, Nima found it was not. This result was definitely due to cross contamination in the kitchen. It was a shame because the pizza was quite expensive (120 kuna = nearly 20 USD) and looked good.
