Where to get baklava in the South Bay area?

A few weeks ago my wife and I went to Costco to buy supplies for a dinner party. A vendor was selling stuff I had never heard of, and one of those things was baklava. I had never tried it, but one taste had me and my wife hooked (they were giving away samples, of course). We picked up a few small boxes of the stuff, and needless to say, it was a huge hit at our party! I'm not sure what was inside the pastries, but they were sprinkled with crushed pistachio and there was a honey glaze on the bottom. My wife is now on a mission to find a bakery or store in the San Jose area that sells baklava. And when my wife is on a mission, aint nobody happy till she's happy! I thought I'd try this website and see if anyone had any suggestions. My work takes me up the peninsula to Belmont and San Mateo. Does anyone know of any bakeries or supermarkets between San Jose and San Mateo where I can purchase baklava? From what I can gather so far online, baklava can be of many different varieties, from Greek to Middle Eastern to Turkish. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
