Baklava on a silver platter at a restaurant near Vive in Chandler, Arizona



Baklava is believed to have originated during the Ottoman Empire, so this sweet, crispy, gooey treat has been around for a very long time. Within the last 700 years it has spread throughout the world and now can be found right here in Chandler. Next time you'd like a gooey treat head to one of these places:

Greek's Grill

This family operated business started as a modest food cart but with determination and amazing food has become a must stop for Greek and Mediterranean food. You won't find any frills at the modest Greek's Grill, just a low-key, cafe-style atmosphere serving up amazing hummus, gyros, shawarma, and, of course, baklava. All of the meals (and desserts) are made with fresh ingredients, from scratch, with family recipes.

Pitta Souvli

This hidden gem was started in 2007. The casual and quiet atmosphere is complimented by the truly hospitable staff so that when you enjoy a meal here you will feel like a welcomed guest. From the freshest caprese salad to the juiciest lamb burger, Pitta Souvli is a must stop for great Mediterranean food. But don't stop at the main course. You should definitely sink your teeth into their homemade baklava, but if you want a different take on this traditional dessert then you must sample their cheesecake baklava. The combination of these two amazing desserts is sure to please anyone's sweet-tooth.

Zorba's Greek Café

Chef H's 30 years of experience shines through at Zorba's Greek Cafe. Enjoy a mellow and casual dining experience while enjoying some of the best moussaka and falafel Chandler has to offer. After enjoying a wonderful meal make sure to save room for their delightful baklava. I recommend the big piece.

This is just a sampling of the good food our community has to offer. If you're searching for a new place that will bring a smile to your face, please contact us and we'll be happy to give you a tour.
