MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The Albanian presence in the Bronx has steadily grown since the 1990’s, with residential pockets taking root in various neighborhoods throughout. Now, lucky us, comes the delicious food of the motherland—most recently, the hard-to-pronounce-but-so-worth-a-visit, Çka ka Qëllu. Located next to the rear entrance of the Arthur Avenue Retail Market, this dining room is a celebration of all things Albanian—picture glass cases full of intricate regional garb and ornate frames with sepia-toned photos. The food is simple, comforting, and filling—think traditional meatballs (qofte); finger-sized veal sausages (qebapa); or silky cream with polenta (kačamak). A wooden tray (the brumat) topped with a trio of Albanian specialties makes for a great introductory course.
