MarketBasket: Baklava by the box
The pastry case at West Philly's Manakeesh is the closest it gets to baklava paradise. Now you can take out prepackaged samplers of these buttery, syrup-soaked phyllo delights. The grab-and-go boxes, holding bite-sized variations rolled and layered with pistachio, walnut or cashew, are ideal for the impulse craving that inevitably follows one of the cafe's brick oven-baked za'atar-dusted Lebanese flatbreads.
Baklava samplers, boxes ranging from $6 for 13 pieces to $15 for 36, Manakeesh, 4420 Walnut St., 215-921-2135.
