The Balkan House
Everywhere You Need to Eat in Detroit Right Now
The gist: The homey (as in literally, it’s located in a former house) Hamtramck spot built a large and loyal following for its döner kebab and expanded to the inner-ring ‘burb of Ferndale.
The food: Specializing in Eastern European fare, Balkan House offers chevapi (sausage links in homemade bread), Bosnian burgers, and sandwiches, but really the main reason why anyone goes here is for the döner kebab, with your choice of beef/lamb, chicken, or falafel enveloped by creamy döner sauce and sandwiched between crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside bread.
The cost: Soups and salads cost from $5 - $13, while sandwiches and mains start at $8.50 up to $27.
