Crimson Garden’s Zerda and Muhalbiyat

By | December 26, 2010

The Bodouir commented on my Zerda post the other day that Crismon Garden makes something similar to the dessert I described. I had to see for my self of course so on Friday I went with my mom and my husband to Crimson Garden Spoons. The weather was amazing and we sat outside, people watching and eating their yummy food. At the end of the meal we ordered tea and their “m7lbiyat” which was described as having 7alwa at the bottom and m7lbiya on top with. It arrived and it looked so very good!

It was topped with caramalized almonds, pistachios, and rose petal flakes. The m7lbiya was really good but the bottom 7alwa was a bit harder than the Zerda I have tried. All together it is a good dessert that is very similar to the Zerda I’m looking for. If you pass by Crimson Garden I would highly recommend it 😀

Crimson Garden is located in Spoons and in the Avenues.
