The Persian phrase “shaad zee” means “living happy” and that is definitely what you will do if you indulge in one of ShaadZee Bakery Bistro’s delicious pastries and desserts!
In Downtown Pleasant Hill, California, across from the theater, ShaadZee Bakery Bistro’s co-owner and European-trained French pastry chef, Stella Madadian, is responsible for such decadent treats as Cream Puffs, Crème Brûlée (one of the best in the East Bay according to repeat customers), cheesecakes, a variety of delicious tarts and, the “pièce de résistance”, a superb Napoleon. Everything is made fresh daily in their bakery.
If you’re in the mood for something a little less fancy, the croissants can’t be beat. There are three varieties. The soft and flaky pastries are filled with bittersweet chocolate, strawberry with cream cheese, or mild almond. Or try one of ShaadZee’s many flavors of Italian gelato. Delay the diet for one more day – it’s all too tempting to pass up!
There’s a pastry or dessert at Shaadzee Bakery Bistro to satisfy every type of sweet tooth. But you should enjoy your sweet treat accompanied by a cup of the organic coffee or latte, espresso, Turkish coffee or delicious Persian tea (cha’i).
The rest of the ShaadZee’s extensive menu reflects the delicious tastes and traditions of Europe and the Mediterranean, with specialties such as Khoresh, Lamb Shank, Salmon Pesto Pasta, Persian Chicken Kabobs and Lasagna. They also satisfy vegetarian diners with their wonderful Veggie Burger and Grilled Eggplant Sandwich. This is a family-friendly yet chic spot with both indoor and patio seating to enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner.
But, for me, enjoying one of ShaadZee Bakery Bistro’s wonderful desserts definitely contributes to my “living happy”!
Today I had the Chicken Pesto Provolone. Now doesn’t that sound delicious?! I’m so sorry you weren’t able to get one for lunch. But not to worry! There’s no harm in a healthy, afternoon snack. And there’s always tomorrow
Let me just cut to the chase and tell you why you should be excited! This is not your everyday, common place sandwich. The Chicken Pesto Provolone is a Panini Flat Bread. Not only is this Mediterranean bread baked to perfection, but it is layered with the most interesting combination of flavours. This includes a medley of grilled chicken, pesto, tomato, roasted peppers and, you guessed it, Provolone cheese. These flavours are further intensified since all these delicious ingredients are then melted together on your already tasty flatbread. What a combination! Who knew ‘healthy’ could be so good?
I can assure you that every bite will be a burst of delightful tastes, that are sure to have you wondering why you only ordered one. Please, don’t take my word for it. Feel free to come get your very own Chicken Pesto Provolone today!
