Said I would review it...


So, DH has been enjoying our order from Masri Sweets for a few days now... But he says that it leaves something to be desired. The filo dough treats were good, but the moushebik and the petit four were only OK. I could've made the petit four, and that is my gold standard.... And DH claims that the moushebic is of the homemade variety. Maybe we are spoiled by the things we get from Misr... Who knows. Basically if I can make it I don't want to pay for it. So I don't think I would give it a thumbs down, "it didn't suck" to quote Showgirls. But, I think I will keep trying different companies.

Salaam Sis,

Well since I am engaged to a man who ate these treats all his life. I decided to buy some as a treat for him and some of his family since they are not really into American Food. I ordered the party tray the 95 pieces one...namora with nuts(hopes it tastes ok that his favorite), makrrons for me, and a tray of kunufa kishna for his mother she likes that. Although I just ordered that today for her. What did you order? And did you get it yet? I am afraid of trying to cook these things....lol... Have you learned any dishes you would like to share?

as-salaamu`alaykum!

You might also like Muhanna Sweets, out of Tulsa, OK. They are famous in Damascus and the Tulsa location is run by the same family. They are not as good as the stuff in Damascus (what is?) but they are the best in the US (And believe me, we've tried them all- my husband is a food snob, especially when it comes to his native food!)
