“Great traditional meat balls”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

If you are visiting Skopje's old bazaar area there is no way you can miss Destan. This restaurant is a century old now and is specialized on meat balls (called kebab in this region). The meat balls are served with some very hot peppers and onions. The bread was warm and very tasty. The portions were big. What a taste!
The staff was very welcoming and friendly and finally we paid less than 5€ per person for a full meal. Great value.

“Destan”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Great place to eat when visiting Old Carsija (market) in Skopje. For me this was the most tasteful meal in Skopje with traditional cevapcici (kebabs) and some additional hot peppers.

“The best cevapcici in Skopje with a glimpse of carsija's daily breathing”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

It is almost ten years that I have been frequenting "Destan" snack bar, the first Destan in Skopje's Turkish carsija (now you can find one also next to the trgovski centar - the quality never drops, cevapcici (a grilled dish of minced meat, know also as kebabs), lepce/lepinja/the traditional flat bread is warmed up, hot pepers and oninons for those that like it ... and waiters remember faces of their regulars. Decent prices, quick servics, indoor and oudoor seating with a startegic view on people who are visiting "carsija", a stop in Destan is never boring :-)

“best kebabcilnica in town”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

at destan yuo can only choose how many kebabs you want and if you want some hot peppers with it, that's it! but that is more than enough, because here you get the best kebabci you've ever had.
Everybody in Skopje will agree on that! You have to test it when you are in town.
