Quick reviews of ethnic cuisines you can experience for less than $25 a person, tax and tip included.

Meat lovers should head for this Balkan cafe, where the specialty is ćevapčići, a pile of juicy beef sausages nestled in warm, griddled bread. The kitchen also has a worthy entry in the area’s burger canon, in the form of an onion-marinated patty dolloped with sour cream. Those craving something on the lighter side should look to the grilled-trout salad, lemony and just smoky enough.
