Nonono. I mean yes. Erm. Sorry, my fault. Got the word wrong. I didn't meant
"Oriental".  That what some kind of German retranslation. I meant, "middle
east" (?). Turkish, Greek, Arabian. For example Baklava, that's made from thin
layers of strudel dough, with sugar sirup between every two layers, and when
it's served, you can pour extra sugar sirup over it. And it tastes mostly of
sugar sirup, which is aromated with rose water.
