Dessert at Anatolia's Gate

Anatolia's Gate Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Dropped in to Anatolia's Gate late in the evening, about an hour before closing. If it's a really quiet night, they may start closing up everything even while diners are still in the restaurant.

Baklava ($5.95) sweet Turkish pastry made of thin dough sheets and walnuts; four for $5.95 or 2 for $2.95
  • A full order is four. Each is about a cubic inch.
  • Thoroughly soaked in syrup which thankfully did not include much, or any, rose water; and which was strangely not too sweet.
  • At almost $1.50 per piece, this was not really worth it as it wasn't that tasty.
Kunefa ($8.50) sweet Turkish pastry made of shredded dough and our homemade cheese
  • Price for portion is OK. Definitely a sharing at the size of approximately five packs of cigarettes.
  • Tastiness is also OK. Not too sweet despite being soaked in syrup.
  • Fun to eat because of the cheese that stays stringy even when the item has cooled to room temperature.
  • TIP: Instead of trying to tear chunks or wrap it around your fork like spaghetti, the least-messy way is to use the edge of your fork to cut chunks. You won't get the stringy fun that way, though.
I actually liked that the desserts were not too sweet, as syrup-soaked items generally turned out that way.
