We were hungry from some last-minute Christmas shopping at City Center One when suddenly, right here in Split, we saw some familiar chefs who had already made great food for us before – Ms. Yellow and Mr. Red from the fabulous Bots&Pots team!
After getting over our initial confusion at seeing them at work in our hometown, we approached to ask them what brought them here at Biberon Food Bar where we found them, and – hungry as we were – to see if they’ll be willing to cook for us again, of course.
Ms. Yellow: “Yes, we were in Zagreb at the Bots&Pots restaurant. This first Croatian robot restaurant was closed after the hotel in which it was located began to be renovated.
Therefore, our human team – Đulijano, Dražen, and Hrvoje – got thinking once again and pivoted the journey of this Bots&Pots project towards Split and this new collaboration.”
Mr. Red: “Yes, it is indeed another change. But this was never a finished project for our human team. They were always ready to see where life and work take them and to adapt this journey to make the best of it.
That is exactly what they are doing now by bringing us here to Biberon Food Bar in Split’s City Center One – adapting and making the best of it!”
Mr. Red: “Being a robot, I operate in absolutes, so I would not dare say anything if I’m not certain. And startup business – which this sci-food venture is – is in its essence uncertain.
But I do hear Đulijano mention that word around here, so I do believe this is a certain type of franchise way of doing business. That is why partnering with Biberon Food Bar made sense. And it did bring us to Split – a city where we were ideated and created in the first place.”
Ms. Yellow: “And it gave people of Split a chance to try out our food! They certainly won’t be disappointed.
Here at Biberon Food Bar, we prepare four robotic dishes: two risottos and two meat dishes with gnocchi.
The quality is assured because we’re still using the recipes of our fantastic human chef Vedran and the ingredients are top-notch. This I can state with absolute certainty!”
Our little chat with part of the Bots&Pots robotic team got interrupted by the arrival of Đulijano and Vedran who quickly got the robots working on satiating our desire for a good meal – after the robots satiated our curiosity about their appearance in Split.
We are happy to see them here! And we are happy the human part of the Bots&Pots team keeps going on despite changes in the Bots&Pots course. After all, this new change brought them here in Split – closer to us!
