This Albanian dinner (Yes, I said Albanian) looks a luncheonette. It is almost as hard to find as the country, itself being on a side street and an incorrect address on the menu.  There are no hamburgers here. Instead plan to have Boreks, (similar to middle eastern Borekas ), that is a pastry that is stuffed with spinach or meat or cheese. The pastry is light and close to a waffle batter.

That's it! Boreks make up almost the entire menu except for some wonderful desserts. A typical dessert is Baklava swimming in honey and/or Karo sauce or cake or pastry that flavored in the same way.

Boreks cost about $4 each and two Boreks are more that you can eat

Sounds tasty...I would go for the vegetarian version. Baklava is a wonderful desert although some of them are a bit too sweet for my taste.

Dan, sounds very good.  I also had to jump in and say that I make Baklava and it's not too sweet.  Even people who have not like it in the past, like mine.
