The mighty kebap

more than a year ago
The mighty kebap (Macedonian) or qofta (Albanian) may well resemble a plate of elongated meatballs to the uninitiated, but in North Macedonia they’re most definitely kebabs, or to be more precise one of several building blocks that together create a fabulous combined dish on several different plates that more or less keeps the entire nation on the move seven days a week. Thanks to their Turkish origin, each single, sausage-like kebap is made from either minced beef or lamb and flavoured according to culture and taste before cooked over hot coals and served with a choice side dishes including fresh white bread, salad, fries and soft white cheese. Cheap, cheerful and utterly delicious, use your fingers to let the waiter know how many you want, order a few things to accompany them and away you go. Perfect for sharing, it takes a while to find the ones you like best, but when you do you’ll definitely be coming back for more.
