Baklava

The origin of this scrumptious delicacy is actually quite controversial. Ethnic groups from Greece to Turkey to the Middle East claim the dessert as their own and prepare it in their own way. Despite the "Baklava Conflict," the dessert has been a staple and perennial favorite in Greek culture for centuries.

This classic Greek pastry is made with layers of flaky phyllo dough with a cinnamon-spiced walnut filling and bathed in sweet honey syrup. It's crunchy, sweet, and positively decadent. We promise, you'll want to try this restaurant near me at least once in your lifetime!


Kourabiedes Cookies

Every family has their own traditional holiday cookies they make year after year. In Greece and Cyprus, kourabiedes cookies are the most popular for special occasions. Kourabiedes cookies are also known as 'Greek butter cookies,' and are similar to shortbread.

After they are baked, kourabiedes are traditionally sprayed with rose or orange blossom water and drenched in copious amounts of confectionaer's sugar. And we mean A LOT. In some parts of Greece, kourabiedes are flavored with mastiha (mastic resin).


Mom's Rice Pudding

Watch out, this traditional Greek rice pudding is better than Mom's! Rizogalo Greek rice pudding is simple, comforting, and delicious, and the perfect dessert to share with kids or a loved one after dinner.

It's dense, creamy, and it tastes amazing warm or chilled. At The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill, our traditional Mom's rice pudding Greek recipe is made with sweet vanilla and yummy cinnamon. It's a true treasure that will delight anyone in the family and keep them coming back for more!
