NOT SO FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD AFFAIR

Sarajevo, May 221. Baščaršija neighborhood is trying to recover from a long and difficult pandemic year. The pandemic is still there, but – summer is coming, so there is a hope that things could get better, even for a short period. When one morning a woman from Zagreb enters the local caffe saying that she came to have „the best grilled meat dish (ćevapi ) in Sarajevo“, he sends her over to Iza, so that he could also, as it was their habit, have the fist morning coffee after serving his first client. This entirely harmless, friendly gesture causes a complete collapse of the neighborhood’s, business and private life, not only of Enes and Iza, but also of the entire town. Where to eat the best ćevapi in Sarajevo?
