Burek, Krompiruza, and Their Ilk: The Delicious Variations of Stuffed Dough
The owner of the place we were staying told us that Bosnians respect their stuffed dough creations enough to give each kind (they have different fillings) unique names. The jab is at Croatians, who refer to all of these filled pies as burek. This one, filled with potatoes, is a krompiruza, and covered with delicious, tangy sour cream. Buregdzinica Bosna, in the old town of Sarajevo, was a hopping little place, with seats inside and outside. The flaky pastry and delicately spiced potatoes served as a very hearty snack for two.
