The Preljevics are from Montenegro but they have lived in Malaysia for the longest time, running the show at that little Italian restaurant called Paradiso, in Taman Desa.
Minela is now a good friend of ours and sometimes we just swing by for a quick, easy dinner, hangout and chat with her. Her mum and dad use to be the main cooks at this place, but now, the business has passed on to their 3 daughters, Minela, Meena and Miza.
Her baklava is thick, dense, sweet and packed with nuts.
Its pastry made of layers of phyllo dough filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with syrup or honey packs a punch I find hard to resist. I make Cumi open our stash on the spot and feed me some right there in the deli.
He feeds himself some too, of course;)
