I am giving Baklava as a gift and need to know what bakery has the best tasting baklava in Brooklyn/Queens?
I agree. Damascus on Atlantic Avenue has the best products you can find. The Baklava is so good. The pita bread is too. I know you will need a hand leaving the store because you will buy more than you thought you would. There are all kinds of sweets and specialties that will make you drool.
oh man, we had the baklava at Damascus and it was just divine! My boyfriend had a pastry made with cream and semolina and that was also wonderful. MMM mmm good.
I'm not going to go out on a limb and say it's the best, but I found a place in Astoria that has baklava so juicy they ran down my face like I was drooling honey. They have a wood burning oven, but I think they use it only for bread.
