Bitchin' Baklava Busts Boundaries

Richmond Review - January 2014

Chef Sausan, the owner-chef of the Al-Masri Egyptian Restaurant on Outer Balboa Street, has created Bitchin' Baklava, a new specialty baklava pastry line that will be available at select shops in the City.


As long ago as the time of the Ottoman Empire, baklava pastry was once the dessert of the rich and royal, she said, cooked up only on special occasions. Now, baklava has become almost as mainstream American as falafel.

"I'm so very excited to introduce this delicious, crunchy and very versatile pastry to the public," Sausan said.


She said the Middle Eastern dessert has been a specialty at her restaurant since it opened in 1999. Now, the dessert will be available at the Simple Pleasures coffee shop on Balboa, Andronico's on Irving Street, and Falletti's Foods at Fulton Street and Masonic Avenue.
