Gurra Café is located on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. Arthur Avenue is famous as the Bronx’s Little Italy but Albanian food is actually pretty well-represented. Most people know that many of the Italian places are run by Albanians and many of the pizzerias serve Albanian bureks. Gurra Café might take this a step further, as it describes itself as an Albanian restaurant although online research indicates that I could file this restaurant under “Kosovo”. Across the street you’ll find the Kosova Deli and another clue are the qebapa “Kosova style,” according to the menu. The gullash is excellent and the kobinim alla Gurra is the best way to sample the meat-heavy menu, including suxhuk (spicy sausage like the Turkish sujuk), qofte, qebapa and pleskavicë, the famous “Balkan burger.” As you satisfy your great hunger for meat you’ll find yourself entranced by the Albanian pop music videos playing on the television.
