Kanafeh (Arabic: ??ا?ة), kadayıf and künefe (Turkish), kadaif (Albanian), kataifi, kadaifi (Greek κα(ν)?α??ι), is a very fine vermicelli-like pastry used to make sweet pastries and desserts. It is sometimes known as shredded phyllo. Kanafeh originated in the Palestinian city of Nablus in the modern-day West Bank, where it is filled with Nabulsi cheese. Another name for kanafeh is knafeh Nabulsiyye. It plays a central role in Palestinian cuisine and is the most famous throughout the Arab world. Kanafeh is also found in the Balkans and is a feature of Lebanese, Turkish, Greek, and Levantine cuisine.
