Everyone in Astoria’s Bosnian expat community has their favorite spot for scarfing down çevapi, minced beef sausages typically served with a flatbread and two spreads – cheesy kajmak and slightly spicy red-peppery ajvar. Most swear by those at Stari Most, named after the landmark Mostar Bridge, whose stone arch replica graces the interior. On a sunny day, enjoy your çevapi– or an alternative like sweetbreads or thin burger-like pljeskavica – on a sidewalk table, rounding out the meat feast with the super-sweet hurmaçica pastry and potent Bosnian coffee.
