Try one of the region’s most-loved sweets
Firas Sweets serves up generous portions of bright orange kunafa, with just the right balance of savoury and sweet. Most cultures across the Middle East claim a version of this traditional Levantine dish, but all involve a combination of gooey, soft cheese topped with crisp-fried vermicelli soaked in cardamom, rosewater and sugar syrup. Make sure you eat kunafa while it’s hot, so the cheese remains deliciously stretchy. At Firas, you’ll find the bakers are more than willing to take you through the selection on offer, with plenty of free samples before you decide.
