On Sunday, September 17, 2017, Hokus Okus will be having the first food completion in Osijek known as “Food Bloggers Battle.” This weekend they will be doing something completely different as they have not done this before. If you have ever visited Hokus Okus, you probably know them for their amazing food that spices up the day. The location on Ulica Hrvatske Republike is great as it can be reached by tram and is in the center of Osijek with walking distance to many great events.
What is Hokus Okus
It is a restaurant that brings the city to life in the urban center of downtown Osijek. When you walk in for the first time it is like magic that it takes you to another place or time. The food is served hot with a great selection of food to choose from. The main dish is kebab and some other favorites that are internationally known. Hokus Okus can be described as taking a new level of street food that is original.

This is one restaurant that really has stood out in Osijek as a place to grab some great fast food. The restaurant will be open again after the event and media have left.
