The house specialty—and basically all that’s on the menu at this simple eatery—is the bureka, the Albanian version of savory stuffed pastries, found throughout the former Ottoman Empire. Here, it’s baked like a pie and served in hearty wedges. Fillings range from ground beef to spinach, but the must-have is a mix of feta and ricotta cheeses—the saltiness of one perfectly tempers the other’s sweetness—enclosed in pleasingly chewy and flaky sheets of homemade dough.
