Fresh made Kanafeh – in Arabic كُنافة‎.

Kanafeh is a traditional middle east Deseret layer of Kadaief noodles, goat cheese, and sugar syrup, delicious desert better to eat hot or at least warm because the goat cheese is less tasty if not hot.

They also offering Baklava, I mentioned the Baklava few articles ago. Baklava is Turkish, or Lebanon oriented, there are a few versions of Baklava – with Kadaaeif noodles or with filo dough, many kinds of nuts and honey or sugar syrup.

I love the Baklava with the Kadaaif noodles.

More sweets to come

One more of the middle east delight is the Turkish delight or as it calls in Israel – Rahat Lokum.

It is another tremendous middle east, and Mediterranean cuisine and dessert.

In Arab it called rāḥat al-ḥulqūm (رَاحَة الْحُلْقُوم)  this means throat comfort, such as the excellent food we know that called comfort food, I guess the Lokum is one of this family.

This candy is gel-based, rose flavor, cinnamon or mint, and many more.

I love the tastes of the Lokum.

What did we eat?

All of the above, I am sure there are many more, but these were ready to take.

The kids finished all the Kanafeh in the car before we even left Abu gosh so no doubt it was good!
