LA Weekly's Description
Pljeskavica is a thin, Balkan hamburger, as big and round as a phonograph record, flavored with salt and onions and peppers and briefly cooked over a hot charcoal fire, a chewy meat patty that still has all its juice. In Los Angeles, pljeskavica is served more or less exclusively at this Westside coffeehouse that offers probably the only Bosnian cooking in town. Tucked into its sturdy, focaccia-style bun, a steroidal construction that bears the same relationship to a supermarket roll that Barry Bonds' right arm does to the musculature of a ballerina, Aroma's pljeskavica is as daunting in its appearance as it is difficult to pronounce. The feta cheese roasted with herbs in tinfoil is goopy, salty, grand, like a great grilled cheese sandwich without the bread.
Tips from foursquare
Great food, but service is a bit slow. Still worth trying.
If you are from the Balkans you need to come here for the great food!
Try cevapi (great lofte) burek and at the end of your meal drink Turkish Coffee
Great meatballs, be sure to try burek too.
Really great Bosnian food, affordable. Try the meat burek and the Turkish coffee.
