A bit of Bosnia in Astoria

jonkyo | Apr 23, 201407:36 PM

3718 34th Ave just near the Steinway south exit, on the R and M.

What makes up the region of former Yugoslavia, the various states, have representation in Astoria-Long Island. Whether one is looking for the venues that cater to the not so assimilated to United States, or something else, one can find many such variations.

I recommend Cevabdzinica Sarajevo. The Burek is splendid, and the other dishes are all what one finds in a ubiquitous fashion in this region.

Photos on the menu can answer most of one's questions, if one is not familiar with such items as cevapi, and all the differing manifestations that use such, or meats similar.

The stuffed cabbages (see photo) are nice, and just as those cabbages were stuffed, you can do the same to yourself.

So, go with an empty stomach, and stuff yourself as Tito did.
burek pastry are about 6 dollars, and come, as for mine did, two large slices to a plate, for the prices. Red crush chilli pepper (pizza shop kind) and other items such as katchup, are on hand.
