Bosnian in Astoria

We went to an event at the American Museum of the Moving Image yesterday. We arrived an hour early and hungry so we took a walk to search for some interesting food. Nothing seemed very good on Steinway St. up to Broadway (didn't want to go any farther so as not to be late for the movie), but on the way back we saw a place on 34th Ave and 38th St. called "Cz(something) Sarajevo" serving Bosnian food. They had Bosnian Hamburgers, Cevapi among other thing. Not very many tables inside and most were filled with eastern European families, but there was a small table available for us. We ordered a spinach Burkek and a Bosnian sausage plate. The service was very charming and friendly. Both the waitress and owner spoke English and made us feel at home. The burek plate had six flaky pastries (they also had cheese and beef ones); the Bosnian sausage came with a wonderful hot bread, chopped onions and a pimento sauce.

They had some strange (Bosnian?) sodas as well as the usual USA ones and Snapples. There was no beer or wine and we didn't ask if we could bring any in (as they are probably Muslim, there *might* be a problem).

The total bill came to $14 (including tax) for the two plates. I highly recommend this place to people who are in this part of town when they are hungry.
