I'd love to find authentic ekmek kadaif (Turkish bread
pudding/pastry) in Manhattan or Queens. I've eaten it
in Istanbul, and the only place I'd ever found it here
was in a now-defunct restaurant on West 55th St. called
Topkapi. I've tried making it at home, but I can never
recreate the true dense consistency of the thing. Some
Greek places have it on their menu, but it always turns
out to be plain Greek kadaif (not ekmek) with some
whipped cream on it. Not my cup of tea...
Anybody have any suggestions?
