Bots&Pots: First Restaurant with Food Prepared by Robotic Chefs to Open in Zagreb

August 14, 2021 - Meet Bots&Pots - the first restaurant in which the food will be prepared by robotic chefs is set to open in Zagreb soon. 

At a yet undisclosed location in Zagreb, GammaChef, a robotic chef capable of preparing one-pot meals such as Dalmatian gregada, stews, risottos, or seafood pasta.

The bot is continually learning new recipes with the help of a (human) professional chef. As Netokracija writes, every time a chef prepares a new dish for the first time using GammaChef, the robot creates a digital recipe with all the necessary data. The automated and patented process in the software then, using sensors, reproduces all the steps of the recipe, following the instructions of a professional chef. There will be five robots in the Bots&Pots restaurant, which means they will be able to serve up to 60 servings per hour. 

The operation of the restaurant will be fully digitized and monitored via a mobile application, and will rely heavily on just-in-time procurement thanks to close monitoring of inventory. Guests will be able to choose food via a screen and be able to watch the robot prepare food. Bots&Pots restaurant is a result of the collaboration between GammaChef's Dražen Drnas, entrepreneur Hrvoje Bujas, and Giuliano Nolo.

As Netokracija quoted Drnas: ''We have designed a restaurant that will best suit the younger population and that makes the most of the possibilities and qualities of robots. The goal is for guests to come first for the robot and the second and every next time for food.'' 

The restaurant has already attracted much attention. Most recently, Bots&Pots shared on their Facebook page that they received a visit from the new British ambassador to Croatia, Simon Thomas, in their showroom, where GammaChef is diligently learning to prepare new dishes.

As the authors of the project GammaChef wrote on their website: ''We don’t believe in 3D printing of food and we don’t believe in magic pills that will replace eating. Yes, we believe in digital recipes but in digital recipes of our grandmas, your friends, or the best chefs that put their love, passion, and knowledge to prepare tasty meals. We believe there are no shortcuts in cooking, therefore, GammaChef prepares food just like real people do.''

Konoba Senko on Vis: A Restaurant Like No Other

Dobra hrana (Good food), Jutarnji list's foodie magazine, brings us the story of Konoba Senko, a restaurant on the southern side of the island of Vis, a restaurant like no other, which is at the same time a place to have amazing food and to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Senko Karuza is one of the greatest Croatian modern writers, a master of the short story, who has decided to dedicate his life to a restaurant he created in a bay on Vis. The bay is called Mala Travna and is mostly visited by nautical tourists. And meeting Senko, whom people sometimes nickname "The Robinson of Vis", is an experience on its own. Often in a bad mood, seeming to hold a lot of contempt for the guests who arrive to "his cove" in high heels, with loud music and the "do you know who I am" attitude, if you show respect for him and his lifestyle, he'll prepare the most perfect seafood dishes of your life.

In the past, he used to tell guests to leave any electronics on their boats, as there's no electricity or GSM signal in the cove. These days, there's a generator (although not a really reliable one), but still no signal, so if you want to bring your mobile phones, you're allowed.

If Senko decides he wants to make food for you, first you'll get several of his awesome rakijas, then a soup made from the ingredients Senko had on hand to cook, then you'll be served a pasta dish, then a brujet (which is how a dish Italians call "brodetto" is pronounced in this part of Croatia) made with numerous types of fish. And then you'll be served with fish from the grill, the freshest kind of fish you'll find anywhere, taken from the sea that day, smoked while on the grill with the local herbs. The food is based on the traditional recipes, although modernised, and the authors of the review swear that what Konoba Senko offers is better than what most restaurants with a Michelin star in Croatia do. Of course, none of it is expected to go down without Vugava, a local white wine variety.
