Fodor's Expert Review Abu Zaid

$ Majdal Shams Middle Eastern

For a delicious dessert, stop by Abu Zaid on Majdal Shams' main street, which sells a type of orange-hued pastry called knafeh. Similar to baklava, it has delicious layers of gooey goat cheese covered in a flaky crust and peppered with pistachios. Ask for a slice from the large tray—one serving could be easily enjoyed by two. The to-go delicacy loses its charm when it cools down, so eat it while it's warm.
