Must try local dish Cevapi

Cevapi or cevapcici is a grilled dish of minced meat found traditionally in the countries of southeast Europe (the Balkans). Although the best cevapi you can eat are in nearby Bosnia, they are served in almost every restaurant in Croatia.

It is eaten with lepinja (a special kind of flat bread), with a lot of sliced onions and ajvar or kajmak (kaymak in English). Ajvar is a pepper-based condiment made principally from red bell peppers, and kaymak is a creamy dairy product similar to clotted cream.

Cevapi are usually served in groups of five to ten pieces and there are variations in meat content and seasoning. Sarajevo Cevapi are from Sarajevo, Bosnia and are made from traditionally meat mix of beef and lamb, served in a traditional flatbread from Sarajevo called somun. Banjaluka Cevapi are from Banja Luka, Bosnia, and are made from beef meat.

You can find Banjaluka and Sarajevo Cevapi, hot and mild Ajvar and Kajmak here in!
