This sweet pastry originating from the Ottoman Empire is a famous Turkish dessert. Hubby came home with a box of baklava from Bricks & Copper one day and I was like, "Oh no!" As you know, I am carefully watching my food intake these days. Okay, I sometimes cheat by eating cookies and sweets, but I make sure I can burn those calories right away. Being pregnant with my second baby, I want to avoid gestational diabetes mellitus as long as I can. So anyway, I welcomed the box of baklava, tried a bite then stocked it in the fridge.
layers and layers of filo pastry..
chopped nuts in between the layers..
drizzled with syrup.. so sweet!
a box of baklava sweetness..
I like the fact that they did not pour the syrup and packed it in a separate container. That way, I can eat baklava with less sugar and the box wasn't sticky or wet.
Another thing that I like about this baklava.. less sweeter than those I had in the past. However, it has less nuts too. I was expecting my baklava to have more nuts in between layers and extra topping of crushed pistachios.
About the price, considering the taste and value for money, I think P500 for 12 squares of baklava is okay.
