Where's the best place to buy a whole halvah in Brooklyn? Thanks.

    I think Sahadsi's on Atlantic has the highest halvah sales and thus the freshest product. (Remember those old Mad magazine cracks about stale, moldy halvah in the back of your fridge?) There's is the classic Brooklyn halvah that spread from the local Syrian Arab community to become, somehow, a Jewish favorite.

      Take a walk on Atlantic Avenue between Court and Clinton. Between Malka and Oriental groceries, you should be able to find happiness.
