You know there is Israeli baklava also. I don't like Turk baklava as much as Israeli baklava. Still prefer Sufganiyot

I was really surprised at the large number of jewish businesses in Los Angeles especially along Pico Blvd. Lots of delis, restaurants, markets and bakeries along Pico.

Baklava in Athens isn't that great. Turks and Arabs tend to make it better, as well as Armenians.

The best baklava I've had in America is from Shatila Bakery in Dearborn, Michigan. Its probably the most popular and well known Arab bakery in America. Even with shipping costs their prices are very reasonable. They also make the best knafeh outside of Palestine.

I've never heard of Israeli baklava either. I assuming its like "Israeli" couscous - really Moroccan and brought by Moroccan Jews to Israel.
