Samra's: good Bosnian food in Kensington

JackS | Apr 4, 2005 10:10 AM

I tried Samra's this Saturday, on Church Avenue near Dahill Road (a couple of blocks west of the Church Ave stop on the F train). Although I've passed by and seen it crowded in the past, it was pretty empty on Sat. night.

We started with a cabbage salad with finely-cut cabbage, a vinegary dressing, and chunks of fresh mozzarella and olives. It was pleasant and fresh. We got cevapi, a skinless sausage which was served with warm, faintly garlicky bread on the side. Together with the tomato/cucumber salad, it was very nice. We also got two meat bureks, which were flaky and tender, much better than prior bureks I've tried around town (including Djerdan, which I see that Eric Eto has recently commented on).

Although I've enjoyed the cevapi sandwich-style better the way it's served at Bosna Express in Ridgewood, the total package was very tasty and I intend to go back. They also have that pljeskavica (sp?) -- the Bosnian burger -- on the menu, which I'm anxious to try.
