After hiking the Lynn Valley Peak, we were ready to reward ourselves with some Iranian/Persian goodies. Kourosh Bakery is located in Lynn Valley Mall which also houses their grocery store (Super Koroush).
We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 4:00pm) to grab some sweets to take home. They usually offer samples but nothing during the pandemic.
Their display cases had a variety of cakes, cookies, baklava and goodies. All sold by the weight ($9.99/lb).
Box ($10.00 for 10)
We opted for the coconut macaroons, walnut cookies, pistachio apricot, wild pistachio blueberries, apple filling and three pieces of baklava (cashew cinnamon, phyllo walnut and mixed nuts). The coconut macaroons and walnut cookies have similar texture; soft and delightfully chewy.
The pistachio apricot reminds me of my childhood (eating those Linzer cookies).
We didn’t love the apple filling or pistachio blueberry; more of a dry texture and it needed more filling.
Baklava wasn’t too sweet.
Come for those deliciously soft and chewy macaroons!
