Cheap and tasty 'home cooked' Bosnian Food. – Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. I tried the Beef Guja with mash potatoes, and the gravy was 'finger-lickin' good. My wife had the Spinach Pie which is different than 'greek style'. It was sort of rolled like a Danish, and was also very good. Dishes were incredibly cheap ($5 each), and quite filling. It's also BYOB, although the owner is a little paranoid and wants you to show her a receipt for any booze. Main criticisms: #1 No atmosphere to speak of (just a small storefront with a few tables) -- I guess a lot of folks take out. #2. Had a difficult time ordering - slight language barrier, AND only a few items on the menu were actually available. But again, what they did have was really tasty, and I will be back. It's a good weekday place when you don't feel like cooking yourself, but still want a 'home cooked meal' and don't want to spend much money.
