Kantun Paulina: 37 years of Ćevapčići in Split

Total Croatia News

Kantun means ‘corner’ in Croatian; Paulina’s Corner is located in the Varoš neighborhood parallel to the Marmontova shopping street. This take-away joint has been serving the city’s patrons with traditional ćevapčići for over 37 years. Take it to go or sit on the bench outside, and if you are lucky you might find yourself sitting next to a fellah with a guitar or harmonica. It’s a great little people watching spot and after a night on the town, its fun to giggle at the drunken by passers with a ćevapčići sandwich in hand…. or maybe I am just easily amused.


So what is ćevapčići (pronounced Chevapchichi; sounds funny right?)? Ćevapčići is a kebab of sorts made of minced meat formed into little sausages and whacked on a fired grill. 5-10 pieces are served in a bun or flatbread called somun. In the mix is also kajmak, a Balkan version of clotted cream, diced onions, and ajvar, another regional ingredient, which is a relish of bell peppers. Ćevapčići are actually considered a national dish in neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina but they are also common and much loved here in Croatia.

Other than the region’s favorite ćevapčići, Kantun Paulina also serve up grilled chicken breast, beef patties and other local grill bites.
