Iraqi pastries-Where to find locally?

UES Mayor Nov 30, 2012 05:18 AM

My brother who is staioned in Iraq just sent a box of Iraqui sweets, some w nuts and other with maybe coconut? Anyway my co-workers went crazy for the goodies. Seemed very Greekish or Lebanese like in nature. Anyone know of any Iraqui bakeries in NYC? Willing to travel to outer borroughs.

    You will have better luck looking on Atlantic avenue in Brooklyn than anywhere in Manhattan.

      If Brooklyn is a problem, you might try the pastries at Kalyustian's (sp?) on Lexington, which is Muslim/Indian, but which carries a wide range of Middle Eastern and Asian foods and spices. There are similar stores in that same "Little India" area on Lex.

        Of course, how silly of me. Gary is spot on.
