Plain and simple, Bay Ridge’s Antepli Baklava has mastered the fine art of Baklava. It’s not unusual for New Yorkers to traverse boroughs to get here, for this no-frills bakery is the real deal; their varieties include cheese, walnuts, and pistachio, all of which you can purchase by the pound. Perhaps the taste is so pure (down to the syrup, buttery layers, and crunchy nuts) because Antepli orders its ingredients straight from Gaziantep, Turkey, the “Land of Baklava.” While a bit more expensive than some other local sweets shops, this Turkish delight is worth every penny.
