Birmingham, AL (RestaurantNews.com) Taziki’s Mediterranean Café is excited to celebrate National Baklava Day on November 17. This year, Taziki’s is celebrating by offering customers one free slice of Baklava with any purchase for online or in-store orders with use of the promo code: BAKLAVA.
Baklava (pronounced bock-la-vah) is the quintessential Greek dessert and the ideal ending to any meal. This sweet dessert is a combination of dozens of light, fluffy phyllo dough layers filled with walnuts, mixed with cinnamon and topped with fresh honey.
“Baklava is one of our most popular desserts,” said Dan Simpson, CEO, Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe. “We want to celebrate by encouraging our customers to live the good life and enjoy a slice of Baklava on Taziki’s this fall.”
Taziki’s Baklava is an authentically sourced product, made fresh from Hellas Bakery, the restaurant’s source of fine Greek pastries and specialty desserts. All their pastries are made fresh daily from only the finest ingredients. Not only are they made in-house, but they are delivered daily to all Taziki’s locations.
“Everything we do is about quality at Hellas. All of our baked goods are created from fourth generation recipes. We’ve been making Baklava the same way for 100 years now,” says Nick Karterouliotis, Owner, Hellas Bakery. “Taziki’s does business in the same fashion as our company, so it just makes sense to partner on this delicious Greek dessert.”
