    I had that at Anatolia restaurant, the restaurant has been mentioned in a previous threads, but I think they spelled it kunefe. It had shredded wheat on top of the cheese filling, and was served warm.

        There is an Israeli food shop west of Yonge on Steeles... it's around the 300 block and they sell Knafe/Konafa (variations on spelling). There is also a Middle Eastern shop in Kensington Market that sells it... it is on the same street as the army surplus store, but that is all I remember.
