The thing about Le Mirage is that it’s actually an all-around great bakery filled with every type of pastry, cake, tart, and cookie you could want. The problem is, we always just end up getting the baklava and bouza ice cream. The baklava is our favorite in the neighborhood (a high distinction in Little Arabia), but it’s the bouza that you should be driving long distances to eat. The taffy-like Syrian ice cream is thick, gooey, and delicious, and modeled after the same ice cream the owner grew up eating in Damascus. It’s an incredibly special dessert and one that should be added immediately to your ice cream Rolodex.
