Kanafeh by Knafit Bladna

Whilst we were still at Lakemba, we decided to check out the Ramadan Street Festival that was happening.

Although "L" and I don't really have a sweet tooth (as of now), we saw this dessert that we definitely had to try.

Kanafeh - "Kanafah (Arabic: كنافة‎‎ kunāfah), also spelled kunafeh or kunafah is a Middle Eastern cheese pastry soaked in sweet, sugar-based syrup. It is a specialty of the Levant and Turkey" - Wikipedia 2017.

The variant we had was Kanafeh NabulsiehIt is generally believed to have originated in the Palestinian city of Nablus,[4][5][6] hence the name Nabulsieh. Nablus is still renowned for its kanafeh, which consists of mild white cheese and shredded wheat surface, which is covered by sugar syrup.[7] In the Levant, this variant of kanafeh is the most common. - Wikipedia 2017.

As I am a big fan of supporting local businesses, I've decided to include the contact details of the people responsible for making and selling this wonderful product.
