Franca Lehara 2, Tržni centar Alta
The first real Banja Luka ćevapi, made according to the original recipe, were served at this restaurant in Sarajevo in February 1978. For more than 35 years, the distinctive quality and service have been reason enough to visit Kastel Ćevabdžinica.
This eatery is located near the city's main attractions: Gazi Husrev Bey’s Mosque, Sahat Kula, Gazi Husrev Bey's Bezistan and Latinska Ćuprija (bridge).
Banja Luka ćevapi differ from Sarajevo ćevapi in taste, appearance and the way they are served. They come in a little “bundle” of four ćevapi in a row and are rolled several times, so this is the main difference one notices from other ćevapi, which are served and grilled individually. As a whole, ćevapi are served warm, in somun (type of flat bread) and usually with plenty of onions, hot peppers, yogurt and other condiments and toppings which make for a great combination.
