My First Arabic Dish, Kunafa!

We are truly amazed by the beauty and the lifestyle of this city, Dubai. We love this city for many reasons, not to mention the bad ones. I am a great foodie, and Dubai is a heaven for foodies like me.In Dubai, over 80 percent of its residents are expatriates from other countries so you can enjoy the food from all around the world, including Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indian, Pakistani, Lebanese, Turkish, European and much more. One day my husband asked me to cook something Arabic. A few days ago we had dined to an Arabic restaurant and ordered a dessert, named, Kunafa. The dessert tastes so sweet, creamy, crunchy, and utterly delicious. Eventually, I have decided to try my hands on my first Arabic Dessert, Kunafa.
