mini israeli/kosher strip along king's highway

has anyone been to the following places along king's highway @ around 2nd or 3rd. st.?

pita sababa: i've read it's a good source for sufganiyot and after trying the dismal renditions @ chiffon & ostrovitsky on ave. j last channukah, i'd like to find a good (sephardic) version.

mansoura-- they apparently sell (kosher) mediterranean pastries -- i.e. m'amoul (sp?) - date-filled cookies-and a bunch of phyllo pastries, both sweet and savory.

david's restaurant -- i guess they do a yemenite-style brunch on sundays.

any thoughts on any or all of these places? any suggestions for other places to stop in the area? i am esp. interested in places that sell israeli imports/specialities.

thanks in advance for your feedback!

    If David's is on the corner, it seems to be crowded on Thursdays, Saturdays & Sunday nights for what it’s worth.

    Not sure if it was here or in The Voice, but there was talk about an Isreali or Middle Eastern place on Kings Highway right off of CIA (it was not one of the myriad kabab place lining CIA, it was def. on KH across from the jeweller). I forgot the name and I’m not sure if it’s one of the places you listed. Supposedly had great food and Middle Eastern delicacies.

      There's a little hole in the wall called "Original Shwarma" that makes exellent shwarma baguettes on east 4th or 5th.

        mansoura's is awesome, and rivals laziza in astoria for baklava tastiness. they have particularly tasty chocolate covered fruits, also- the best i've ever had. and they are super friendly and fun to talk to.
