London - Seriously good Syrian pistachio ice-cream at Damas Rose, Edgware Road

klyeoh | May 26, 2013 10:03 AM

I trekked up Edgware Road the other day to seek out Damas Rose, which reputedly served the *best* booza al-haleb - stretchy, gummy pistachio ice-cream - outside of Damascus. And considering that many of us wouldn't be planning to visit Syria anytime soon, this is as close as we can get to a taste of the real thing.

Return visit on Saturday - when it comes to syrup-laden filo-pastry-based desserts, Damas Rose also has the works: from buttery-sweet baklava to burma (whole pistachios wrapped in vermicelli-like sugary strands; fat, glistening crescent-shaped kataif; creamy-sweet kenafeh topped with chopped pistachios, etc.

Very friendly couple of guys running the place.
