My favorite place for burma kadayıfı (shredded wheat rolled around a load of toasted pistachios, then sweetened with syrup) is Saray Muhallebicisi inIstanbul's Beyoglu district, on İstiklal Caddesi not far from Taksim Square.
Okay, that's a mouthful: saray (sah-RAH-yee) means "palace," and muhallebicisi is a maker of rosewater pudding (of all things).
Rosewater pudding was a big deal in Ottoman times. Saray has been here since 1935, so I suppose a lust for rosewater pudding survived the fall of the empire and lingered into republican times.
You can still order a portion of the bland white dessert at Saray, but I never have. I go for the baklava, burma kadayifi and other, more flavorful and substantial Turkish desserts.
