This Palestinian-owned bakery in Bridgeview has baklava and the other sticky-sweet treats you expect, but the real draw here is up by the counter: a pan of warm cheese oozing out from under a layer of circus-peanut-orange crispies. This is knafeh, sort of a cross between a deep-dish pizza and a cheese blintz, white cheese and saffron-colored shredded wheat topped with crushed pistachios and doused with sweet syrup. As rich as it is, you probably won’t make it through a whole portion, but on weekends the locals line up and consume it at the bakery’s few tables.
