If I could eat borek everyday I would, well, maybe for a week. I was introduced to borek, a Turkish pastry stuffed with delicious fillings, at Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne. There’s just something so satisfying about biting into warm savory pastry and hearing the audible crunch and tasting an explosion of flavors.
Walking to Queen Vic we passed by Borek Bakehouse on Elizabeth Street and tried their borek to see how it compares to the one we had at the market.
I ordered spicy lamb and it had quite an explosive kick. The flavors were bold and complemented the mild pastry. So which borek was better? I say it’s a tie. Both were served warm, fresh and very crunchy.
