Balkan Bites – Bureks
Balkan Bites is a women-owned business based in NYC specializing in Southeast European comfort foods such as Burek, a portable stuffed phyllo pie. It all started when co-founder, Ariana approached her aunt and co-founder, Alida with a simple idea—to teach her how to make traditional Albanian recipes in honor of her late grandmother, Magbule. Soon enough, they were debuting their Bureks at outdoor pop-up markets in NYC, receiving overwhelming support from customers around the world.
Since COVID-19, Balkan Bites has pivoted to selling handmade, frozen burek on their online store where they ship nationwide.They are a small company with a big mission to share a piece of their culture through everyday Southeast European comfort foods.
