Bougatsa. The Desert of Kings!

The lack of Greek pastry shops in the Bay Area means that one cannot get some classic Greek deserts, such as a Bougatsa.  Its a sweet, cinnamony custard wrapped in philo dough and topped with powdered sugar.  Its was originally a peasant dish.  Like all peasant dishes, today they are considered delicacies and are highly regarded and sought after.

This is a taste of Greece that one can only get in a heavily populated Greek area, such as Montreal, New York or Chicago.
