Over the last four years, the famous middle eastern dessert called Kanafeh has gone viral. Whether you spell it as Kanaafeh, Knafeh or Kunafa – it really doesn’t matter – because either way it is an absolute treat for the mouth.
As of today, Nafisa makes two main kunafeh types: our Kunafeh with cheese and our Kunafeh with cream. Both of these variations are absolutely amazing – we wouldn’t choose one over the other.
Our Kunafeh continues to be our top selling dessert item. It’s a treat and many customers, particularly those that are counting their calories, love the fact that you can share our Kunafeh with a partner.
One of our favourite Kunafeh combinations is with our famous Arabian Pistachio Ice Cream. Many non-Arabs prefer to have Kunafeh this way, and we cannot blame them – it is a combination from the heavens!
