Local foodie website Cravings recently published a feature on ethnic restaurants in the five boroughs, and singled out Bosnian and Polish cuisine for special attention.
They declared Burek of course as the highlight of Bosnian cuisine, after a visit to Djerdan (221 West 38th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues). Slavs of New York would go a bit further and also recommend the cevapci.
As for Polish cuisine, the star at Polam International Market (952 Manhattan Avenue between India and Java Street, Greenpoint) was the stuffed cabbage – at about 70¢ each!
Meanwhile, Cravings enjoyed the smoked bacon spread at Damis (931 Manhattan Avenue between India and Java Street, Greenpoint). The food at this jungle-themed restaurant apparently wasn’t up to snuff, but the meal was saved by this bacon spread which came free with the basket of bread before dinner was even served.
