Bricks & Copper Baklava Review

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..


My Verdict:
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.

  7. Ohhh... congrats on your second baby! I pray a safe pregnancy for you.

    So that's what a baklava looks like! It reminds me of Napoleones, a delicacy from Bacolod.

  8. Oh! I love baklava! My exboyfriend's mom used to bring me those from Bahrain everytime she comes home to the Philippines. Too bad I don't recall which shop she buys them from.
