The reason for this post: I eat with my eyes. Oh… when I saw this raspberry konafa from La Poire I knew I was going to buy it. Berries are one of my favorite flavors, and infusing them into kunafa is a new idea. The crescent on the top caught my eye. There are so few things to celebrate Ramadan. When I saw this I couldn’t help getting excited. Raspberry jam and mouse with crunchy kunafa was a winning combination. I’m already brainstorming how to recreate this at home for next year!
I love La Poire with its pastels and mint green chairs. Their desserts are delicious and they switched it up for Ramadan with some seasonal desserts. Another favorite is mango kunafa… it will change your life. 😀 The only downside is that they allow smoking in their cafe which can be a downer. But since this is Egypt you can get anything delivered to you… a good and bad thing. Even McDonalds delivers here! Fancy a Big Mac at 1am? A slippery slope!
