Chevapi Grill South Melbourne Balkan Restaurant

Chevapi Grill South Melbourne Bulkan Restaurant

I’m quite sure I’ve seen cars around South Melbourne with the Chevapi Grill logo on them. I’ve been aware of this restaurant for quite some time but never tried it until recently. Last week I stopped by and got a takeaway beef Burek. We later came again for a group lunch!

Beef Burek at Chevapi Grill

This Beef Burek was great, it really inspired me to come back with the team. The pastry was really good and the filling was of good quality. Chevapi Grill keeps their Bureks in a heater at the front of the store, they are already warm, so they are a very fast snack if you’re on Clarendon Street. They just cut off a piece and put it in a bag for you and off you go!

Group Lunch at Chevapi Grill

When looking for a good place to eat near Clarendon street for a variety of tastes including a vegetarian, the delicious looking cheese or cheese & spinach Bureks came to mind and we looked up the menu and there was something here for each of us. Cheese & Spinach Burek at Chevapi Grill

My colleague Dhara says “The flavour of the cheese was good. It was nice and crispy. There are not a lot of different ingredients but still, it tastes nice. A good dish for cheese lovers.”

Chevapi Burger (Lunch Box Special with Chips)

This lunch deal includes a Chevapi burger with a side of chips. I found the burger to be really good, it was served in a Balkan-style flatbread was very fresh and soft the 4 Chevapi sausages inside it were very filling. The chips were not really the style I like, but they were fine. Next time I wouldn’t bother getting chips though, this plus my side of Haloumi cheese was too much.

Grilled Haloumi Cheese


Whilst my photography is not amazing, this presented very well on the black plate with its scorch marks. This grilled Haloumi also tasted great, with the typical squeaky texture you get from biting into Haloumi. This was definitely a better side than the chips.

Below are the two items which Jan had.

Crispy whitebaits with garlic toum sauce

“The fish is good, super crunchy, and a bit salty which is good to eat with beer.”

Balkan-style traditional flatbread

Jan also said that the bread was good.
