Irresistible baklava, doughnuts made off this Brooklyn train stop


The three-year-old store is an import from Turkey, where the city of Antep is now known as Gaziantep. (There are other branches in New Jersey, and one coming soon to Texas). In addition to various forms of baklava ($10 to $16 per pound), there are other sweets like kunafa ashta, made with shredded phyllo and sweet cheese, pomegranate Turkish delight, and ice creams imported from Turkey. For the next few weeks, there will also be specials for Ramadan, including ricotta-filled crepes and rounds of fresh cheese dusted with crushed pistachios.
