Burek


Thanks to the rain all over central Europe, I've changed my plans regarding going on a little break, and instead will stay at home and watch football this weekend. That means that I'm here to update the page too.

Here in Slovenia the most popular street-food or take-away food is something called Burek. It's not actually a Slovenian food, but like in all of the countries over the Balkan area, it has evolved a little bit to the tastes of the local population.
Burek is everywhere here, on every corner of every street there is a Burek place. What is it? It's phillo pastry filled with either minced meat, cheese (like a cottage cheese), or one kind that I believe is only available in Slovenia, a pizza filling (tomato sauce, mushrooms, melted cheese.)
Anyway, if ever you are in one of the ex-Yugoslav countries, it is the law that you must try this local favourite.

Here is a shot I took yesterday of one of the Burek places. This one is a fairly popular one, in the centre of town, and is just one of a little chain of outlets selling Burek under the name of Slast.
