Bosna Express

791 Fairview Ave. Flushing, NY 11385 | Ridgewood | 718-497-7577

Location Description:

What may be the world's greatest hamburger flips on the gas grill at Bosna Express, a Bosnian restaurant in a closet of a space under the elevated Forest Avenue M stop, in a quiet neighborhood with an almost rural quality. The burger in question is called a pljeskavica, a patty the size of a hubcap made with a lamb/beef mixture laced with onions. The wonderful homemade bun is a variation on the pocketless pita, and optional toppings include raw onions, ripe tomatoes, lettuce, ivar (red pepper paste), and kimek (a sort of sour cream). The burger demands to be shared by two people, and you'll never forget it once you've tried it.
