Pljeskavica in Astoria


Last week, the New York Times published a piece on pljeskavica, a burger that is prevalent throughout the Balkans. It can be had right here in Astoria, and how! I have never had one, personally, but it sure sounds delicious. I am going to have to try it now.

Can't wait to try one. If it's anywhere near as good as Djerdan's burek, I'm in look.
