This morning I took my car to a shop a couple blocks away for its bi-annual inspections and an oil change. As I was walking home I decided to finally stop at the Bosnian bakery near my house. I had zero expectation since I know nothing about Bosnian food despite the fact that I have lived in this predominantly Bosnian neighborhood five years. Shame on me.
Anyway, I was surprised that there weren't any "pastries" as I define them. They had three cakes that looked delicious but I bypassed chocolate for breakfast and went for the only other thing they had in the case:
Even though I asked the poor gal a million questions, I failed to ask what this is called but they are HUGE and only $4. This one has beef and potatoes in it. The other choices were all beef or cottage cheese. I wasn't really in the mood for a meat/potato pie for breakfast and am saving it for lunch but I tried a bite when I got home and DAY-UM!! It was so good that I danced around the kitchen yumming it up. I ran into the owner of the speed shop, Dwayne, on my way home from the bakery and he said they do their best business when they open at 3 am, which is coincidentally when the bars in the neighborhood close. Makes sense - I would totally eat this after a night out.
It took a couple bites before I realized that the beef and potatoes are INSIDE the pastry "tubes." I wonder how they do that? Whiskeymarie? Any thoughts?
We're watching you.
