The knafeh is a must try when coming to Al Bawadi grill. This popular Middle Eastern dessert is made of a layer of crushed phyllo dough topped with cheese and cooked on a low flame. Before serving, it is soaked with a sweet sugar syrup and topped with crushed pistachios.
It doesn’t stop there, per your request, Al Bawadi can come out to your events and make knafeh on the spot for you. Nothing beats a fresh warm plate of knafeh straight off the flame. You’ll have your family and friends savoring every bite.
