The Best Knafeh In JerusalemJaffar Sweets is probably the only place that is mutually agreed to be the best of its kind. Here you will find the best knafeh in Jerusalem, and in the entire country. The knafeh here, with red kadayif dough, is layered with pistachios and hot sweet goat cheese, exported from Nablus, where knafeh is said to originate from.
Two kinds of traditional knafeh are sold here - the red one with kadayif dough, and semolina knafeh which is also delicious, but less well-known. With the dish you receive there will be rose water you can pour over the dessert. Sugar overload!
It's not common to drink sweets with knafeh, there are water pitchers on the tables, drink some water!
All done? - Before you leave you can buy at Jaffar's other sweets like baklavah, semolina cake, and other Eastern sweets.
