Plenty of visitors enjoyed Gibonni’s concert performance last night on the Poreč waterfront, as well as delicious tuna specialities, as part of the Tunalicious Street Food Festival, which will offer a wide selection of tuna street-food dishes and first-rate entertainment with live shows by Croatian bands until September 23rd.
Gibonni overwhelmed the crowd with his greatest hits, as well as newer songs such as “Bella Figura Bella Pitura”, which he performed live in front of a large and excited audience in Poreč for only the second time ever. What made Gibonni’s concert in Poreč special were the superb culinary offerings, which included tuna dishes and other fish types, as well as an assortment of local wines, which are exclusively available at the one and only Tunalicious Street Food Festival. The music portion of the programme was opened by The A! from Zagreb, a band who had introduced themselves to the audience in Poreč earlier this summer at the Poreč Open Air Festival.
Over three days, the residents of and visitors to Poreč will have the chance to savour exquisite fresh tuna specialities prepared by an array of chefs under the expert guidance of Ivan Ergović, the executive chef at the Spinnaker Restaurant at Valamar. The gastronomic portion of this year’s event has been expanded with “gastro corners” offering delicacies made from tuna and other fish varieties. Burger fans can head over to the burger corner and try the tuna, octopus and shark burgers, or the fish-in corner where they can enjoy goatfish, prawn and squid fritto misto and tuna wraps. Octopus salad, mussels “buzara” style, sardines, squid and grilled scallops will be served at the seafood corner, while a large number of visitors are bound to be intrigued by the tuna delicious corner, where they can relish tuna skewers and steaks, as well as tuna cubes in black and white sesame. Another speciality of the festival’s culinary offering is the sashimi, which will be prepared tonight by two top-notch sashimi experts from Slovenia starting at 7 pm.
