Eating the Globe: Bosnia and Herzegovina

This meal beats the Chilean lomito sandwich as the best meal of the series (so far). There is a Bosnian community in the South Bay, where Euro Grill is located. A Bosnian market owned by the same people is located next door. 

I had the Cevapi (derived from the word kebab). It's akin to a skinless beef sausage. The flavor is mild yet sublime. The entree came with 10(!) sausages, raw onions, sour cream, and minced red pepper. The homemade bread alone was worth the one-hour drive. It's soft, spongey, and chewy all at the same time. It perfectly soaked up the grease and smoky flavor of the sausages. This is a masterpiece of a sandwich.

We shared some frozen fries (not Bosnian) and a unique sour pickle salad. It consisted of olives, little cocktail pickles, pickled peppers, and pickled cabbage stuffed inside larger pickled peppers. None of it was particularly sour, so it was easy to consume.

Countries tried so far:
Africa: Ethiopia
Asia: Burma, China, India, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam
Europe: Bosnia, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Sweden
North America: Mexico, USA
South America: Brazil, Chile
