House of Pizza - Closed

42-20 30th Ave. Long Island City, NY 11103 | Astoria | 718-545-9455

Location Description:

The best Balkan bureks in town come from this unassuming Astoria pizza parlor. These rotund flaky pies-fabricated from phyllo dough and well-oiled-come stuffed with a choice of ground meat, cheese, or spinach and cheese. The spinach is preferred, with cheese a close second. Order a mug of the homemade yogurt to go with it, to be poured over the top or used as a dip for pieces torn from the massive pie ($12), which easily feeds four. Other non-Italian offerings include a sorrel-laced veal goulash, and grilled cevapi, skinless mixed-meat sausages fragrant with onion.
