Oakville will soon be home to “award winning” Sarajevo-style Chevapi and naturally smoked Bosnian Sudjuk.

Mrakovic Fine Foods, which supplies specialty meat products from the Balkan region, will open a new store this spring located in the Dorval Crossing East Center at 200-240 North Service Rd. West.

Having fled wars in the Balkan region in 1994, the Mrakovic family began selling smoked beef products from their small apartment before opening Mrakovic Meat & Deli in Toronto in 2003.

From freshly baked pitas and smoked veal sausages to their enormous Big Balkan Burger and smoked ribeye, the shop says it uses traditional recipes to bring new, yet “very authentic” taste experiences.

In 2019, Mrakovic won gold at the Ontario Finest Meat Competition for his fresh Chevapi.

“Our duty is to produce only the highest quality meat that is delicious,” Mrakovic says on his website. “Halal and consistent in every bite. We started this business to share the traditions we have always known and loved.

“We just hope you love them as much as we love making them.”

Customers can grab something from the bakery or butcher or try something from the deli or takeout. Catering is also available.
