Best Baklava

Turkish Kitchen

The ideal baklava should combine lush, crisp, sweet, and earthy into one tiny, terrific package, an aspiration far beyond the ken of whoever's baking up all those pasty, tinder-dry wannabes that are all too common these days. Turkish Kitchen's spectacular rendition is moist, almost creamy, with butter-soaked phyllo, thick chunks of roasted pistachio, and a plenitude of honey saturating every supple layer. Rich and moist, like a sun-kissed Mediterranean bread pudding with zest and crunch, its gooey magnificence is best tackled with knife and fork. Turkish Kitchen is a cheerful bastion of yummy, affordable Old World cooking with eye-catching murals and that strong, fragrant coffee that goes so well with rich, buttery, honey-drenched sweet stuff.
