Yas Bakery and Supermarket in Vienna
We have been near this place many times, but didn't see it until today. We went to lunch in Vienna, Virginia and tucked away off the Main Street was a little establishment called Yas. I immediately recognized the Persian script and told my husband we should stop by after lunch and check it out. So we did. When we lived in Milwaukee, we visited Chicago all the time and occasionally stopped in to the ethnic grocery stores on Clark Street, after we went to Reza's for lunch or dinner. Since we moved to DC, we visit the grocery store in Rockville after lunch or dinner in Yekta. Now there is another option for us. So we stocked up on some bread, postachios, dates, canned stew, several spices, and lovely desserts - perfect with tea! Yas has been there for six years, and it had several customers coming and going while we were there. There was a guy making fresh bread in the back. So if you are ever in the mood for some Iranian delicacies and treats, this is a place to visit. How about a donut peach?!
