Mititei or Mici (both romanian words meaning "little ones" / "small ones") is a traditional dish from romanian cuisine, exclusively in Romania, consisting of grilled ground meat rolls in cylindrical shape made from a mixture of beef, lamb and pork with spices, such as garlic, black pepper, thyme, coriander, anise, savory, and sometimes a touch of paprika. Sodium bicarbonate and broth or water are also added to the mixture. It is similar to ćevapi.

It is often served with french fries, mustard and murături (green pickled vegetables).
