Balkan Bites is a female and family owned business that specializes in wholesome Southeast European comfort foods such as Burek (boo-rek), a portable stuffed phyllo swirl. With our dedication to premium ingredients and authentic recipes, we aim to make our cuisine accessible to all.
A daily staple in the Balkans, Burek is savory phyllo pie that is flaky on the outside and oozing with goodness on the inside. We make our all-natural phyllo dough from scratch with premium ingredients like unbleached flour, extra-virgin olive oil, and real butter.
Bite into one for a meal or pop a dozen into the oven to feed a hungry crowd.
Order minimum is 2 bags of burek. We ship to all 50 states and Washington DC. Shipments will be completed on Mondays for orders placed the previous week before midnight EST Sunday. Thank you for your support during these difficult times!

Your Bureks are out of this world amazing. Before they were even done, our apartment was filled with the most delicious aroma and I am not sure how I even managed to take a photo before devouring the flaky goodness that was steaming in front of me. I don’t remember chewing... but I have sweet memories of light and fluffy crust that was perfectly crispy on the outside and filled with soft gooey cheeses on the inside.

I loved how crunchy the outer crust had become, and enjoyed unraveling it while savoring bite by bite. Highly recommended!

Wow! That was great. Light, fluffy, and filling at the same time.
It is delicious! Finally I have some Burek like my Nana used to make. The whole family loved it for lunch.

It all started when Ariana (right) approached her aunt Alida (left) with a simple idea—to teach her how to make traditional Albanian recipes in honor of her late grandmother, Magbule. On Sundays, they found solace in baking together, reminiscing about her while bringing her recipes to life. Soon enough, they were debuting their Bureks at local markets in NYC from the Columbus Circle Holiday Market to the Queens Night Market, receiving overwhelming support from customers around the world. And so came the start of an ‘unBurekable’ bond: the birth of Balkan Bites, a small company with a big mission to share a piece of their culture through everyday Southeast European comfort foods.Learn More
