Scumptious Three Aces baklava

Ryan | Apr 17, 2005 11:31 PM

I live on campus at Harvard Law School, and Three Aces is the closest restaurant. Unfortunately nothing there is even marginal--nothing except the baklava. This is the best freaking baklava I've ever had. It oozes honey, rosewater, and butter in a decadent way that the commonplace dry baklava triangles can't duplicate. If you're driving or walking by, it's definitely worth stopping for .

I had to try baklava at approximately 10 other places before I was comfortable suggesting that anybody should walk inside Three Aces. But I'm addicted to my $1.80 dessert, and I will no longer eat the dessicated filo pastries purveyed by otherwise tasty Middle Eastern restaurants.
