My coworker introduced me to “fingers” a delicious Middle Eastern pastry. At $2.90 per piece, they are pretty pricey, but they are pretty labor intensive to make. Fingers, or Asabi as they are also called, are made from thin phyllo like dough and rolled with cashews and raw pine nuts. They are light and less sweet than baklava.
I also pick up half a dozen pierces of baklava, another delicious dessert made of thin layers of phyllo dough, separated by butter and filled with nuts and honey. The baklava from here is far less sweet than other places I have tried, but we enjoyed every bite!
