Ice Cream? Cheesecake? Chocolate Truffles? Daifuku? What is the best dessert on an airline?
I wrote about this delectable sweet treat in my earlier trip report, but never gave it a dedicated post. It deserves one.
On a recent Midlde East Airlines flight from Beirut to Frankfurt, kanafeh was served! If you’ve never tried kanafeh before, you are really missing out. It is a traditional Arab dessert made with layers of cheese and dough, topped in pistachios and drenched in rose water syrup. Best
breakfast dessert ever. Served warm, it is the perfect combination of savory and sweet.
This dish goes great with a strong espresso. The side of fruit and plain pita also balanced the powerful taste of the kanafeh.
I love the unique combination of flavors that this sweet treat offers. If you’re thinking this isn’t for you, just trust me and try it if you ever get the chance. You won’t regret it. It is rich, but worth the calories.
And while Middle East Airlines served excellent kanafeh, if you want the best of the best, check out Habibah in Amman. The “home” of kanafeh is so popular you can expect a line no matter what time of day you visit.
