Former Yugoslavian Eateries In Chicagoland

Have you ever tried Chevapi or Burek in Chicago. If you'd like to try something new delicious ... keep reading and watch the video below.

What are Chevapi?

Ćevapi (Serbo-Croatian pronunciation: [tɕɛˈvaːpi]) or Ćevapčići/Ћевапчићи (formal diminutive) is a Balkan dish of grilled ground meat, a legacy of the Ottoman Empire found in the countries of southeastern Europe. They are considered a national dish in Bosnia and Herzegovina[1] and in Serbia[2]. They are also common in Croatia, Montenegro, Slovenia, as well as in Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia and the border between Italy and Slovenia (provinces of Trieste and Gorizia). They may be served on a plate or in a flatbread (lepinja or somun), often with chopped onions, sour cream, kajmak, ajvar, cottage cheese, and so on.
More about Cevapi on Wikipedia.

What is Burek?

Burek is made from layers of dough, alternating with layers of other fillings in a circular baking pan and than topped with a last layer of dough. There are many versions of BOO-rrek, similar varieties from Bulgarians, Bosnians, Yugoslavians, and others. There are similar famous triangle-shaped Greek spanakopitas that are flaky compared to burek.

My social media friend Ericka made this great list on Yelp named Chevaps in Chicago.
