Does anyone know where I can get Baklava with a strong rosewater taste (& all the spices/flavorings stronger in general) --in West LA --preferably in Westwood or Santa Monica area? Baklava is often 'toned-down' for Americans, & I really love the stronger tasting kind.

...A year or 2 ago a friend brought me some I think from a bakery around Olympic Blvd... but not sure I'm remembering the location right...

Thanx!

    Have you tried calling any of their locations?

      Nothing I’ve seen on their website's product descriptions indicates that they ever use rosewater in any of their recipes. Couldn’t hurt to call them, though.

      I expect most of the many Persian bakeries in town have some version of what you’re describing. Pink Orchid on Westwood Blvd. might be a good place for you to start.

        Attari Sandwich Shop desserts are extremely rosewatery, as are many other Persian desserts up and down Westwood Blvd.
