Best Albanian


The foremost Albanian contribution to New York cuisine is the burek, a spare tire of a flaky filo pie, stuffed with spinach, cheese, meat, or a combination. Although many Albanians now run pizza parlors and turn out delicious bureks as a sideline (sometimes they’re not even on the menu), Burektorja Dukagjini specializes in them and serves virtually nothing else except coffee beverages. You can sit in the pleasant but small premises right off White Plains Road and wash your warm wedge of burek down with cappuccino, but why not take an entire pie home? 758 Lydig Avenue, The Bronx, 718-822-8955 (10462)
