Egyptian: Belady Bread and Koshery

Thanks for responding to my post! All are great suggestions but I did a little further research on the kind of bread I am looking for and, the real name of it is called aish baladi bread and it is made of whole wheat and the skin of the wheat, looks like pita, but is thinner maybe someone has an idea where I can find it? Thanks chow hounds,

Egyptian: Belady Bread and Koshery

Hi...I am new to Chowhound but I was wondering if anyone can help me find Egyptian Belady Bread within the New York City / outer borough areas...I am not looking for Pita Bread - Belady Bread is thin Pita bread but different...my friends from Egypt bring it from me when they come visit but I was wondering if I can find it here in the New York City area...are there any bakeries that have this or any authentic Egyptian Restaurants...I am also looking for a place that serves Koshery, which is a plate of starch / comfort food, it has lentils, rice and macaroni in it with delicious spices...so if you any of you know of both of these food items that would be great ...Thanks again!
