Description

Village Voice's Description

The simplicity of this tiny coffee shop is refreshing, with a menu limited to three kinds of bureks (cheese, spinach, and ground meat), homemade yogurt to dip them in, and the standard permutations of espresso. The contraption the bureks fly out of looks like a miniature pizza oven, and these round filo pies appear with clockwork regularity. Though they outwardly resemble the Bosnian bureks of Astoria, the Albanian examples are less greasy; the spinach version lacks cheese, but is more powerfully flavored with dill; while the cheese is extra-cheesy and even tastes good stone-cold.

    Albanian joints make the best bureks - round, flaky pies stuffed with spinach, cheese, ground lamb, or a combination thereof. We're in love with the cheese burek at Burektorja Dukagjini, located near one of the Bronx's best food corners.

    Delicious Albanian spinach pie, meat pie, and decent espresso.
