Pasha - A Convenient Bosnian Grill

Pasha - 28-27 31st Street, Astoria, NY 11102
N/W Train to 30th Avenue

I've been noticing Pasha, the new Bosnian cevapcici counter, on my way to the gym--it happens to be conveniently located underneath the subway. Everytime, I hear the word cevapcici--grilled minced meat served with flatbread, onions and sour cream--I think about my childhood and the vacations my family took to the former Yugoslavia. I remember the summers in Serbia, where we spent our days on the rocky beaches and our evenings in town, eating these delicious meaty treats.

Pasha provides a small glimpse of that childhood memory, as they serve traditional style cevapcici but their menu is also mixed to please a variety of palates. Below is a sampling of their menu. I'm excited to report back to you once I sample their cuisine--which I hope will be soon.

Bosnian Sandwiches: From the grill, they come served on fluffy pita bread with tomatoes, onion, lettuce and your choice of hummus, ayvar or sour cream).
