Jalebi looks similar to South African koeksisters (deep-fried dough dunked into syrup), but koeksisters look more like long braided crullers.

Try the milk cake at AlNaimat. Not too sweet and you can taste it before buying. On weekends they have goat paya in the buffet — good on a cold day. They also let you take food from the buffet — you can fill the containers yourself after tasting it first.

Haat Bazar on 73 St. has real good katchi biryani made with goat. Also Ruchita on 73rd St has daily changing menu.

Jelebi is close to something the Egyptians make as I saw once in Paris; the syrup needs to [be] soured with lemon juice.
