Lebanese Desserts

The Lebanese culture specifically the Tripolitan one is unique. A big part of the Lebanese food involves a wide array of delicious and decadent treats, that is originated from the northern part of Lebanon, specifically Tripoli. Here is a brief sample of our mouthwatering and delicious desserts.

Baklava and Maamoul

Every culture in the region has their own special version, including the Lebanese. Our baklava is sweet, flaky and we have dozens of different types – each one typically includes multiple layers of super thin pastry, a filling of chopped walnuts, pine nuts or almonds.

Mafroukeh Without Kashta

This traditional Lebanese dessert is one of our most popular. The body of this dessert features a cake-like element made from semolina, sugar and butter (often infused with orange blossom and rose water) and it is topped with a light cream mixture known as eshta or ashta. For a classy finishing touch, pistachios, almonds and pine nuts are roasted, crushed and sprinkled on top.
