The Bureca Store in Rego Park

label300 | Apr 16, 2002 04:06 PM

To clarify Jayask's recent post, (which I can't find now), the Rego Park Bureca store is on Saunders Street, 1 block south of Queens Blvd., off of 63rd Drive. To use pizza analogies that you can all relate to, the owner/baker is the Difara's of the Bureca makers. An old-school artisan type who's more of a baker than a business person --handmaking goods that are surely underpriced. To continue the pizza analogy, the store has the quirkiness of Totonno's during the Jerry years, but without any of the perceived rudeness. I recommend anything eggplant or spinach.
