The picturesque little harbor in the town of Volosko near Opatija has added another restaurant to its roster. The unpretentious pizzeria/restaurant called Moho has found its space between two high end restaurants - Plavi podrum and Le Mandrac. Its disregard for conventions can be seen in the fact that you can’t find its name anywhere on the façade. The name is written in chalk on a big board above the bar in the inside of the restaurant. We cannot resist speculating about the name of this snack bar. If you translate its name from Spanish, “moho” would be “mould” or “rust”.
It is also possible that there is a connection to a famous historical person born in Volosko, and it is Andrija Mohorovicic, famous Croatian scientist who was born in this small enchanted town. Mohorovicic was the first scientist in the world who, based on earthquake waves, established the discontinuity in the velocity of plates that separates the mantle from the crust of the Earth, which was called Mohorovicic’s discontinuity in his honor. In 1996, the asteroid No. 8422 was named in his honor - 8422 Mohorovicic.
The chief advantage of pizzeria Moho is its big terrace – located next to the cult bar Kon tiki and the glazed terrace of Le Mandrac. The menu is very simple, almost confectionary. Several types of pizzas, pastas, salads, several cold starters and that’s the menu. Moho has positioned itself as a quick, relatively cheap snack bar where you can have a solid pizza (we recommend the pizza sandwich) or salad, without rituals or philosophy.
The positive side to Moho’s presence in Volosko is the additional liveliness that was created in a micro-location that was already alive with exceptional energy. Now you can eat something “ordinary” in this unordinary, almost surreal place.
