    I just made these and i must say im quite upset. The phyllo dough recipe turned out like turkish ordinary bread. It was nothing like phyllo. So now im stuck with this fat turkish bread with a spinach filling. Allthough i like turkish bread, it doesnt go with this filling. Did you write something incorrectly in the phyllo recipe?

    Beautiful! Luv Borek. Wanted to mention, one of my fave armenian restaurants serves the borek (w different fillings), & a Manti similar to the recipe you posted, but filled with meat (from memory). They also have armenian pizza & pastries, Pellmini etc. Great post! Don't know why anyone would give this less than a 5! Deserves a 10!!!
