As if we weren’t spoilt enough, ordering our cakes from JHP, FBB and now…
We get our Baklava, specially made for us by the Preljevic’s. Ms Minela Preljevic specifically.
The Preljevics are from Montenegro but they have lived in Malaysia for the longest time, running the show at that little Italian restaurant called Paradiso, in Taman Desa.
Minela is now a good friend of ours and sometimes we just swing by for a quick, easy dinner, hangout and chat with her. Her mum and dad use to be the main cooks at this place, but now, the business has passed on to their 3 daughters, Minela, Meena and Miza.
Anyway, the Baklava is not really for public consumption – more for family and friends and if you are lucky, sometimes you might walk in on them making a batch.. they actually invite you to try some;) .. anyway, now we know Minela, we custom order it from her and she makes us a handsome batch when the time or need arises, and believe me, we need!
Her baklava is thick, dense, sweet and packed with nuts.
Its pastry made of layers of phyllo dough filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with syrup or honey packs a punch I find hard to resist. I make Cumi open our stash on the spot and feed me some right there in the deli.
He feeds himself some too, of course;)
The pizza here is good as well. Fuss free, affordable and you can ask for loads of extra cheese and tomato base, if you like.
If you are looking for 5 star fine italian dining, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a nice, warm, cozy interior with heartwarming company, service and food, then THIS is the place for you:)
Just down that same block is a really cute 100Yen Shop.
What’s different about this shop is the dessert kiosk they have at the front.
You see that cute lil penguin? Well it churns our iced desserts not unlike the ice-kacang. Too bad we already pigged out on tiramisu, ice cream and baklava. Next time little penguin.. next time.
