TAJ EL MALEK, Balha’s Pas­try

Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - Four dishes - MICHAEL HAR­DEN, VIC­TO­RIA EDI­TOR

Baklava is present in all its sticky-sweet va­ri­ety here, but the hot pick is taj el malek. Kataifi pas­try shaped into lit­tle bas­kets is filled with roasted pis­ta­chio nuts drenched in rose­wa­ter sugar syrup: sat­is­fy­ing shat­tery crunch, re­strained per­fumed sweet­ness, del­i­cate good looks. Or­der more than you think you’ll need. Balha’s Pas­try, 761-763 Syd­ney Rd, Brunswick, Vic, (03) 9383 3944
