If you’re dieting or just generally lack will power, do not even think about walking into Abla’s Pastries. This late-night Lebanese cake shop is an Aladdin’s Cave of sugary treats. In the long gleaming glass counter that runs along one side of the expansive shop you’ll find semolina cakes, baklava in every shape and size, pastries filled with pistachios, almonds and cashews, cakes topped with soft meringue and ladies fingers. Behind the counter is where they keep the sugared almonds and on the left are whole cakes, ice cream and the coffee machine. You could save yourself some time by buying one of the ready made gift boxes wrapped in colourful cellophane, but choosing is half the fun.
