Village Voice's Description

This spare but rollicking spot specializes in the Balkan-style grilled meats of the former Yugoslavia. Specifically there are pljeskavicas (giant onion-laced burgers) and cevapcici (little skinless sausages of beef and lamb), both served on the steroidal pita called lepinja. The bureks--flaky filo pies--are also magnificent, including the rarely seen cabbage version that arrives coiled like a garden hose. Finally at Ukus, there are a number of small entrees, including cabbage leaves stuffed with finely minced meat, and a navy bean stew jumbled with beef jerky.

    Hole in the wall with great flaky burek and tender grilled cevapi (skinless beef sausages). A must for Balkan food enthusiasts.

    Get the Generously portioned burek in the morning when it's fresh! Authentic and affordable!
