Damascus Bread & Pastry Shop

syria

With a few minutes to wait before a meeting, and the winds gusting to 80km/hr, I ducked into this wonderful smelling bakery first just to kill time, but eventually could not resist to try some of their savory pastries.

Despite having such a massive amount of everything, all items looked freshly made and were all equally tempting. I ended up trying only a triangular spinach pie ($2) and a samboosak ($1, below). My version came filled with cheese and was a bit on the greasy side, but was also available with ground lamb. I was also impressed by the stock in the refrigerators, as almost all of their selections came available to take away and make at your leisure.
