Balkan States: Cevapcici. Pork, lamb, beef or a combination of the three. Cevapcici is prepared with onions and garlic and then grilled, boiled or fried. Five to 10 finger-sized pieces of sausage are often served with home-baked breads used to make sandwiches. On the side you'll typically find ajvar, a spread that will have you licking your fingers to get every last bit of the roasted red peppers and olive oil.
Belarus -- Draniki: A favorite among locals, this potato pancake is served in two styles: savory or sweet. The savory dish is served with sour cream and the sweet version is served with applesauce. A great rendition is available at the Grunwald Café in Minsk, which serves a mix of medieval-style food. Zoonar/D.Dzinnik, Getty Images/Zoonar RF
