For owner Yaniv, Danish Nosh is a labour of love. Awakening in the early hours each morning to hand-make many of the stores baked goods, we ask him if he was tired: “You don’t get tired when you love what you do”, replies Yaniv, and he obviously really does. There’s a real desire to uphold the traditional pastries of both his childhood and the baked goods the local community have long enjoyed, while also having outlets to channel his skills and creativity. The range is pretty hefty: hand rolled bagels, sweet and savoury baked goods and pastries, cookies and even larger cakes – all available to enjoy in house or take away – and it looks set to grow further as Yaniv confesses that they’re hoping to add breads to the menu also.
I visited with Food Fiend Melbourne, and we were lucky enough to try a huge range of the pastries on offer. It was so difficult to pick a favourite, the pastry on everyone was spot on and even when I sent our seasoned photographer in a couple of weeks later to grab a few extra pics he was like “That bakery was so nice” (and seriously, he takes pics of food all the time). The savouries became a bit of a blur after we’d finished stuffing our faces, but personally I don’t think you can beat the classic spinach and feta combo.
Moving on to the sweets, the Chocolate Rugelach – which looks like a mini croissant – was unbelievable. It has toffee chocolate folded through it – so it’s not that big a chocolate hit like a pain au chocolat – and is a more subtle flavour throughout. It’s one of those things you want to eat all day! Another highlight for us was the vanilla slice and its lemonade flavoured cream. It’s a subtle change on a classic and is one that you’ll both love and remember!
We also took home a couple of bagels – filled with those two bagel classics – smoked salmon and pastrami. The bagels were deliciously soft and light – you could really taste the attention that’s gone into perfecting them, and while the smoked salmon was our fave, they’re both great representations of a classic and an ideal go-to lunch! Never have I felt so lucky to have such a wonderful bakery in my local area. Don’t worry Food Fiend Melbourne I’ll bring you some next time we catch up!
