Burek

share
Burek is the universal and ubiquitous Balkan treat that simply has to be tried when you’re in the region. From the Turkish word bur, meaning to twist, burek comes in all manner of shapes and sizes but are essentially a filo pastry snack with a savoury filling, usually minced beef, cheese and/or spinach, that's best enjoyed with the addition of lashings of plain yoghurt. Burek can be found ready to eat, cheap and piping hot in bakeries and speciality places operating out of little more than an open window, especially around the bus station. Variations on the burek theme can be found as far and wide as Israel, where they have the burekas, and even in Lithuania where they eat something not unlike a burek that they call a čeburekai. Enjoy.
