I’ve made my own baklava at home plenty of times. While it’s fun mixing and matching different nuts, syrup to pastry ratio and wacky shapes, nothing beats walking into a baklava pastry store. The huge display here offers more varieties of baklava than you can imagine.

Here’s what I ended up with:

The long ones in the back-right are lady’s fingers cashew baklava… these are crispy, buttery and not overly loaded in syrup. Splendid. The round disc of pastry with cream has been an all time favourite of mine… the soft fluffy cream balances out the sweetness so well. Ah, and my second most loved baklava would have to be the king’s crown of long kounafa pastry which resembles a bird’s nest full of whole pistachios. It’s pure heaven.
