Where to find galaktoboureko in Manhattan?

hamstrman Apr 27, 2008 05:14 PM

So I have been able to find a couple of places in Brooklyn that serve this wonderful Greek dessert, but I am wondering if any place in Manhattan sells it.

Someone mentioned to me that Poseidon Bakery in Hell's Kitchen sells it. How is it and does anyone know of any other places in Manhattan where I could find it?

    I haven't had it at Poseidon, but I am a fan of Poseidon's other Greek pastries.

      They have something similiar, but this pastry is like an individual piece of galaktoboureko wrapped in phyllo.

      The Greek Kitchen sometimes has it on their menu.

      Astoria is probably your best bet - many of the greek bakeries and restaurants out there have it.

        Not on the Manhattan board, it's not.

          I had some fairly good galaktoboureko at Kellari's Parea a few weeks back

        At Ethos, the Greek taverna-style restaurant, on 3rd Av., b/t 33rd & 34th Sts., we've been served it for dessert on the house.

          To add to my own question, where in Manhattan can I get şöbiyet? I found out tonight that what I thought was galaktoboureko was actually şöbiyet. Are they the same recipe, but from different cultures? Turkish vs. Greek?

            Not sure if they have them, but I think Kalustayans would be a good place to start.
