We are about to buy the stuffed grape leaves for our big NYD party. Always gone to Eastern Lambejun. Are Sevan's better???

    Tough call - I like all of them (Massis, EL and Arax). FYI: the meat ones are called sarma (said "sud-ma") - yalanchi is without meat.

      And I love Arax! Veggie ones, large and very home-made tasting. Sevan for veggie Persian-style(?) with tomato, pinenuts and raisins...Their meat ones need to be served warm, all the others, room temp.

        Do they offer veg or meat?

          The Yalanchi I've had from them is always veg. Don't know if they make meat. I also have to say that they are amazing to work with. I put in a HUGE order for them to cater my birthday party last year and gave them only a couple of days notice. They were accomodating to a fault and everything was delicious.
