Best Baklava in San Francisco

I'd like to get several trays of the best and gooiest baklava for my boyfriend's birthday this Sunday. Suggestions? I'm looking for a place in the city since I don't have a car.

  1. My favorite baklava is made by Oasis in Belmont. You might try ordering it and arranging to pick it up at one of the places in the City that carry it (I buy it at Oasis Grill on Drumm across from the Hyatt Regency).

    1. re: Ruth Lafler

      I saw the Oasis brand at Crossroads World Market, Hayward. The clerk told me they get it fresh every Thurs.

      Crossroads World Market
      230 Jackson St, Hayward, CA

    2. Zatar in Albany is OK if you catch it right (ie. if it is fresh, not always a guarantee at this place.)

      They usually have three different types of baklava.

      1. The best I've ever had is at Wally's in Emeryville. Call ahead, they can't make enough of it--it's that good.
