I basically compare every babka to Breads Bakery. I love that there's a chocolate element to it, and it's flaky but doughy on the inside.
I have a girl who does my hair, and I know she's a huge foodie, so every time I go in there, I tell her, "You gotta try this, you gotta try that," and recently, I asked, "Have you had the Breads Bakery babka yet?" And when she said no, I said, "I'll bring you one the next time I see you." So it was her birthday recently and I had Caviar deliver two babkas to her salon for her birthday. She flipped out over it. Also, on Christmas Day, the Jewish side of my family goes to get Chinese food and then we bring babka with us as dessert and eat it at the restaurant.
