Midnight Snack

If you were like me in college you would take a study break and drive to a local fast food joint to pick up a burger every now and then. Many of the drive-throughs are open late in order to take advantage of the over-worked, sleep deprived student who wants a midnight snack. And they certainly advertise that fact well in America:
But in Croatia it's different. Many restaraunts, and all grocery stores close by 9:00. So what do you do if you want a late night snack? What if you've been busy all day and you can't wait to get your hands on burek-with-meat but it's 9:05? What do you do if you wake up in the middle of the night and the cookies in the cupboard just don't do it for you?
1. Walk to your local bakery:

2. Go to the back door:

3. When you knock and ask for burek-with-meat, they'll kindly hand it to you - fresh right out of the oven. It's the best time to go. They're preparing it for the next morning. They have to work through the night. And even though they're "closed" they don't mind having company.

Why would you settle for a smooshed burger with soggy fries when you can have a delicious burek-with-meat that satisfies until morning?
