i didnt use it yet, but i was gonna use it to make brik.... coz i remember reading here someone said the spring roll and the brik pastry are the same. i thought filo pastry is different as it has many layers and the brik pastry is thicker... :) :)
Yes you are right the filo pastry is thinner, so your making brik shall we bring anything to go with that:D x

The brik sheets I bought in Hammam Sousse Monoprix in October are still fresh and good to use kept wrapped well in the fridge, amazing.
