Any Croatian restaurants in LA, other than Ante's in San Pedro?

    I belive Pavich's Brick Oven Pizza is Croat-owned.

      It is, and last year they helped one of our Hounds find some special kind of Croatian puff pastry for a recipe she was working on. I'm sure they'd be happy to point in the direction of any Croatian restaurants.

        Strictly speaking, I believe Aroma is Bosnian-owned rather than Serbian.

          I don't want to get into the politics of this, but I googled "Croatian" and Aroma came up. Never been there myself.

        I can't believe the mods deleted my posts. But Croatian food and Serbian food are quite different. They are not interchangeable words.

        Aroma Cafe is not Croatian food.

          Unfortunately, I think it's just Ante's and Pavich's for Croatian in LA.

            Not a restaurant, but Goga is a Croation market on the border of Rancho Palos Verdes and San Pedro
