There’s this Facebook page ‘The Balkans’ which has over a hundred thousand likes. That’s where Balkan people forget about past conflicts and put aside their political & cultural differences to unite over burek, rakia, diaspora jokes, etc. It’s worth mentioning that half of the posts are burek-related. Why? Simple. Because we LOVE it!
In Prishtina, you can find burek in any bakery. However, when it comes to finding the perfect burek — that can get a little trickier. Rumor has it that Picadilly has the best burek in town. Picadilly has been at the same location since 1999; it doesn’t seem to have changed that much. It remains small and quite old compared to other spots we have nowadays. I kept getting recommendations from friends so I decided to give it a go only recently.
Results? Yeah, they were right! It was simply delicious. Not that fatty, not doughy, perfect crust and perfect amount of meat. At Picadilly you can find burek with meat, cheese, and spinach. Add to that ajran (ayran) and you will get what all the fuss is about!
