Atayaf

dml | Sep 1, 200912:14 AM

It's Ramadan and we miss the atayaf (aka atayif, katayif, and many other variations) that our Syrian landlords used to make in Brooklyn for the holidays.

Atayaf are half-moon shaped pastries (for lack of a better word) consisting of a pancake-like wrapper that is filled with either a honey-walnut mixture or ishta (a 'cheese' of sweetened and thickened milk and/or cream), fried, and then, sometimes, doused in syrup.

Does anyone know where they're made around here? SF would be ideal, but anywhere in the bay area would be useful to know.
