Village Voice's Description

What may be the world's greatest hamburger flips on the gas grill at Bosna Express, a Bosnian restaurant in a closet of a space under the elevated Forest Avenue M stop, in a quiet neighborhood with an almost rural quality. The burger in question is called a pljeskavica, a patty the size of a hubcap made with a lamb/beef mixture laced with onions. The wonderful homemade bun is a variation on the pocketless pita, and optional toppings include raw onions, ripe tomatoes, lettuce, ivar (red pepper paste), and kimek (a sort of sour cream). The burger demands to be shared by two people, and you'll never forget it once you've tried it.

    We tried to find the precise diameter of the Bosna Express hamburger, but it was too mouth-watering to wait! #48 on our 100 Dishes to Eat Now

    one of the best burgers I've ever had. and the only pljeskavica I've ever had.

  • Ian W. on 06/01/10
