BEE HOON AND CHEESE DESSERT

Kunefe is the signature dessert of four-month-old Turkish restaurant Ottoman Kebab & Grill. The traditional baked-to-order delight is made with a very thin rice vermicelli and cheese, both imported from Turkey, coated in a light sugar syrup and covered with crushed pistachios.

I know what you are thinking: Bee hoon as a dessert and with cheese can't be good. But it is. The crunch from the rice noodles that are baked to a golden crisp is the highlight here. This, along with its cheesy centre - a mild, Turkish version of mozzarella - and its pool of syrup that isn't too sweet, makes for a fine way to end a meal.
