Bosnian Cevapi and Burek at Cevabdzinica Sarajevo

If "Cevapi and Burek at Cevabdzinica Sarajevo" leaves you tongue tied, just say "Sausage and Pie at Sarajevo Fast Foods".

With an awning that proudly proclaims "Cevapi Since 1976", this table service eatery is as authentic and casual as the tracksuits favored by the Balkan regulars.

The proposed menu:

Cevapi: Minced beef kebab in a warm fluffy flatbread served with raw chopped onion and ajvar, a red bell pepper "ketchup"

Cheese Burek:  Cheese encased in phyllo

...and more.

After the savories, we will share an assortment of Cevabdzinica Sarajevo's inexpensive easy-to-eat-but-not-to-pronounce desserts, such as tulumba, hurmasice and tufahije.

The final bill for the meal, including tax and tip, will be divided equally among the diners. The estimated cost per diner is $15-20. You will be responsible for the cost of any drinks that you order. Cash only. Please bring small bills.

Seating is limited to one table. Please only RSVP “Yes” if you will attend. If your plans change, please update your RSVP.

Public Transportation:

- R or M to Steinway Street

(from Manhattan, exit near the front of the train and walk one block down 34th Avenue)

    Bosnian restaurants are some of the most intimidating to enter, but take a chance for delicious hard to find eats. The food is accessible, if you like your food brown and consider raw chopped onions to be a serving of vegetable. The namesake cevapi, smoky skinless beef sausage, may have been overshadowed by the somun, a not-so-flat flatbread that makes pita look and taste anemic. Ajvar added a splash of red to the unrelenting browns. Described on the menu as “hamburger patty with added flavor”, the pljeskavica was a favorite. Ask for it by name. The surprisingly friendly owner promised that the syrup soaked Bosnian desserts are fresh and made in house. $2 for tulumba or hurmasica – a bargain, if only for the experience. The “Dirty Old Men Need Love Too” sign on the counter shows that there is a sense of humor behind the Balkan death stares. Thanks to everyone who came to dinner – what are the chances that all of us saw “The Housemaid”? We should buy a lottery ticket together.
