Mentioned on the SF Board, so I am moving the general question "What's Warbat?" up here.
Not much on on the web on warbat.
A Flower Shaped Filo Dough Crust Stuffed with Cream Cheese & Topped with Honey Syrup and Pistachios?
An Arabic custard -filled pastry?
A variation on baklava?
The warbat that I had yesterday did not have a trace of sugar syrup, and it was more cheezy than custardly. I ate the triangles with my hands and there was no syrup or oil residue.
It was a medium-light and fluffy dessert, and it was awesome. The recipe is coming my way and I will post it on the home cooking board. But there is that restaurant in San Jose, and from what I read on the Internet, it may be similar to those I ate yesterday.
Warbat is a cream-filled pastry that you soak in a sugar syrup and decorate with pistachio nuts so that would be your first suggestion. It's originally from Jordan, although you can find variations on it all over the middle east. It's very sweet but great with strong arabic coffee. I haven't seen them flower shaped but I guess you can do them anyway you want to.
