Looking for Bosnian food

dimsumgirl Nov 24, 2012 10:27 AM

Had some wonderful Bosnian food in Texas and I'd love to have some here. I doubt that it could be found in my neck of the woods in NorCal but how about in the bay area? Anyone know where I can get it?

    I'm not aware of any full-fledged restaurants. There's a market in Alameda that's run by Bosnians that has some Bosnian foods and there's a market in East Oakland that also has some. IIRC the one in Oakland has some prepared foods. I haven't been to the one in Alameda since they moved into new digs, but they apparently have some as well.

      Cevapi was one of those outrageous dishes that I had. Good to know that it can be found in California--pkjeskavice is another dish that I'm after. Thank you!

        I made some cevapcici for a chowhound picnic and saved some for Ruth's mom but I was told Ruth ate them all. Easy to make and serve with ajvar or tzadziki

          We often have cevapcici in Croatia and Bosnia (and a whole load of other foods). We also serve it with ajvar that I make when we eat it in Canada. It does not help your question, though, but I felt compelled to jump in as I love Bosnian and Croatian foods.

            Yes, I was bad!
