Bosnian Pita is nothing like the pita you may be thinking of. It’s a vegetable or other filling wrapped in a flaky pastry dough, rolled out almost like a pretzel. Luckily there was one vegan item on the menu, it was even marked “vegan,” so I could try my first Bosnian food.
Most of the pitas offered contained eggs, dairy and meats but the vegan pita was simple: chopped zucchini, maybe a light seasoning all rolled around thin dough, like phyllo. The pita was very greasy as if it was fried, but fried at an earlier time because it didn’t taste too fresh. There wasn’t much flavor to the pita, which can be nice to be able to taste the vegetable, but it wasn’t enough flavor for a $4.75 a la carte meal for me. I questioned if there was butter in it because of the saltiness. None the less, it was good, but not shockingly good. The meal was a nice change to my normal lunch spots but it won’t be a place I am rushing to get back to.
