Maiwand Kabob House and Damavand Market, Fremont report (w/ pics)

I went here after I found Mughal was closed for another hr-I didn't want to wait.

My first time there I asked the young man what was the more popular dishes. I ordered those:

Gyro sandwich only $3.99-beef gyro. If u want fries then it's $5.99. It was good. Thin slices of beef gyro, some sauce, lettuce, and bit of tomato on a nice soft gyro bread.

Chopan Kabob-steak cut lamb cooked over an open fire $11.95-lamb chops were tender and juicy. Comes with a slab of bread, some tomato/onion side, and a potato/garbanzo side.

Leek boulanee (menu spelling)-turnover bread filled w/ leek & spices, served with a side of yogurt sauce $6.99. It smelled great in the car and couldn't wait to get home. I was a bit disappointed because it wasn't crispy or spicy, and they didn't give me the yogurt sauce!

I might go back, but not in any hurry. Total was about $25 for take-out more than I wanted to pay.

They take credit card.

Damavand Market:
I went here after ordering some take-out at Maiwand Kabob House. It's a small store that sells Iranian food, halal meat and chicken, plus Iranian bread made fresh in the back of the store on the left. Melanie's previous posts:

I don't have much experience with Iranian food but I've tried a few things.

What I got:
Barbari bread-it's a type of Persian flatbread in Iran that's 2 feet long. It's crispy on the outside and light and delicious inside. Best to eat right when it's hot and fresh or within a few days. Cheap too $1.50.

Sadaf special blend tea w/ cardamom flavor-it's tea that's pretty light, good to make Chai-like tea, just add hot water, let it sit for a few minutes then add milk. $3.99 for 50 tea bags.

Sadaf Orange Honey $4.99 for 12 oz. It sounds good, will try soon.

Diamond Bakery baklava-looks like the regular baklava. Going to try it tomorrow.

They have lots of Persian spices, raisins, ice-cream, cheese, cardamom, lots of teas, sweets, etc. Worth exploring.

Store clerk/owner said I needed to buy $10 worth of stuff to use my credit card. I had over the amount but just paid cash.
