San Rafael - Jasmine Market - Persian donuts & ice cream (from San Jose)

rworange | Jan 26, 2007 08:54 PM

This is one of the best Persian markets I've seen in the area ... lots of breads, a good selection in the dairy case, rice, nuts & dried fruit, lots of groceries (the pomegranite jam is calling my name), cookbooks, a little deli in back and a few fresh veggies. Zand has more deli items, but Jasmine had a lot more of everything else.

In the deli case were big fat yeasty custard filled donuts that looked identical to Polish paczi. They are made in a bakery in San Jose and delivered on Friday. Unfortunately it was late in the day and they suffered as any donut sitting too long. There was a lot of oil in these so that didn't help the freshness factor.

They also have Persian Ice Cream ... rosewater & falooda ... from someplace in San Jose too. I didn't go home right away so I had to pass on it.

Bread deliveries are on Tuesdays & Fridays.
