Djerdan Burek

Venue Info

What is a burek? It's a Turkish/Bosnian empanada-esque pastry made with baked phyllo dough, and it's amazing. Djerdan is spreading the gospel of burek throughout New York, and their Astoria location is the best place to grab one. Each one is cheap enough that you can grab several varieties, cooked with cheese, meat, or spinach. Also available is a variety of other delicious traditional Bosnian dishes, plus you can grab a bag of frozen bureks to take home with you when you inevitably become obsessed.
