Sasoun Bakery - la ma joon


Found myself in Glendale this weekend and swung by Sasoun on Colorado - as @Nemroz predicted, when we walked in the door the woman working was pulling about two dozen lahmajune out of the oven. Got a couple lahmajune, which were awesome, crispy, well-spiced. We also got a spinach bourek, which I’ve had before and which I also enjoy.

My favorite thing, though, was the Maeishe. Unfortunately it did not come wrapped around herbs or veggies as it does in the above pic, but honestly it didn’t need it. Super acidic and absolutely caked with spices and seeds, it was crunchy and bright and super zippy like if burritos la palma made one stuffed with smelling salts. Will definitely be back.
