What Is? Kadayif

 Kadayif is a Turkish dessert made from shredded wheat with nuts and sugar syrup.

Bearing a resemblance to Künefe, Kadayif does not have cheese, and is eaten cold. Shredded wheat is pressed out in sheets and then rolled around a center of nuts, often pistachio or walnuts.

The nut rolls are then covered with sugar syrup and eaten at room temperature.

Try kadayif at Cafe Mese, Hafiz Mustafa, or Koska in Sirkeci.
