“Pizza” by Another Name: Lahmajoun

Lahmajoun is kind of like a Middle Eastern pizza, a crispy flat crust smeared with seasoned ground meat. They’re best, of course, straight out of the oven. Go to Sasoun Bakery, and you’ll likely see people waiting around for fresh, hot and delicious lahmajoun. Sasoun also has pretty good boreks, triangular savory pastries filled with cheese or spinach.

But Burger Boy swears that Partamian has the best lahmajoun in the city.

And Koko’s Bakery has great breads, lahmajoun and boreks, says Tom Swift.
