Tucked away in Haifa’s Wadi NisNas neighbourhood, you’ll find a little shop with a sweet secret.
The Mahroum family of Konditora HaMizrach (The Eastern Bakery) brought their famous recipes from the streets of Nazareth to Haifa over 35 years ago, and have been satiating the sweet tooth of the locals ever since. A variety of ‘baklauwa’ are made fresh on the premises and are stacked along the front counter on awesomely large metal trays. The shredded phyllo, called ‘kadaif’, is still brought in fresh each day from Nazareth, and is used to create their signature ‘knaffe’ – a dish of the buttery strands, that are stained an orange hue, and baked atop a bed of fresh goat’s cheese, then drenched in the sweetest of syrups. Have just one bite, and you will understand the demand for this mouth-watering dish. Try the malabi pudding if you crave a hit of perfumed rosewater with your Arabic sweets.
