Künefe is a crispy cheese-filled dessert made with kadayıf, which is a traditional shredded wheat dessert with pistachio filling. It was delicious, I enjoyed the crispy textures of the shredded kadayif noodles, the chewy cheese inside, and the crunchy bits of ground pistachios on top.

We initially ordered this without knowing what it is, simply because it looked interesting. What we thought was a rosti-like dish (it looked like it!) turned out to be a sweet, satisfying dessert. Would recommend for sharing - I probably wouldn’t be able to finish it on my own as it is quite a big plate. Try it if you’re looking for something different, oh and especially if you like pistachios!
