Hi folks,
Does anyone know where I can buy cevapi in the Detroit, MI area?
We love it.

    I can't help on the Detroit area, but in metro Atlanta cevapi is sometimes available at Zoka's Deli on Atlanta Road between Marietta and Smyrna - in the Fair Oaks community. Zoka is a recent immigrant from Bosnia, and also carries a variety of foods from the Balkan countries.

      If you're downtown, hit the Park Bar, a block west of Woodward near Comerica Park/the Fox. There is a Romanian food counter in there. I know that there is a Romanian equivalent to this dish, and I've seen people eating grilled meat that looks like cevapi. But I can't remember the name, or if they have it. The food counter is a separate business, called the Bucharest Grill. It's cheap and good, if you like foods from that part of the world. Good luck. Cleveland is also a good place to look.

          According to their menu, the Bucharest Grill's website, they have a skinless sausage made with beef, pork, garlic and spices called mici. Is that equivalent?

            Lookin' good--per Wikipedia, Mititei or Mici is Romanian for cevapi. Bon appetit (or however you say it in Romanian. I did have that dish there and liked it, although the garlic was a real knockout for anybody around me. Fortunately, the friend I went with had it too.
