Good middle eastern market in south bay/peninsula?
I recently transited thru Dubai, and I bought some assorted baklava produced by Al Mealim company. It is absolutely fantastic and very different from what you normally get here. I cannot bring myself to eat what passes for Baklava in the south bay restaurents anymore:) I'm looking for a (fancy?) middle eastern store that carries the *real* arabic sweets. Any ideas? Help!
International Market in San Jose/Campbell is much better than Rose Market, but while the baklava they carry is pretty good, I don't know that it will blow your socks off. I think if you're hoping to find something like what you got in the Gulf, you are very likely to be disappointed. :-( That's why we travel!
Melanie Wong posted a while back about a restaurant that made really good atayif, but apparently it's not available anymore... maybe for Ramadan.
