Restaurants & Bars Outer Boroughs

So I was walking down Kings Highway in Brooklyn and, around East 14th, there was this place that had gyros and the like. But what drew me in were all the different kinds of baklava in the window. I got 4 pieces each of what I thought were the usual walnut baklava and pistachio baklava.

When I got home and bit into one, it had what I thought at first was a rice pudding inside. Upon further consumption it tasted and looked more like an eggy custard inside. Frankly, it's delicious. I googled "baklava" and "egg custard" and found the term "galatoboureko". But the recipes for it don't look like they contain what I consumed...

Does anyone know of the place I am talking about on Kings Highway and around E 14th Street that serves baklava? Is this galatoboureko what I ate? If not, what is it that they are selling there? Perhaps their own invention? I would also like to know if I can get it anyplace else in either Brooklyn or Manhattan.
