Hummus Place deserves two spots on this week's list (it only failed to make restaurant because, I tried it and hummus just doesn't make a meal for me) but their house specialty dessert Kadaif is spectacular. In a city where it's easy to come across baklava, this nest like confection is a rarer treat. We first tried it when Zipi Zape served Turkish food years and years ago and have been on the look out for it since.
The piles of noodles, made from shredded phyllo dough make for a delicious sweet, especially topped with vanilla infused ricotta cheese, halva, mint and honey date.
Like everything on the menu, it's an affordable indulgence that can be shared.
