    Sunnin - Lebanese - Westwood - "Sfiha" (item #14)

    Sham - Syrian - Santa Monica - "Safeeha" (2 versions

    Note - Sham's website didn't work on my machine, an I-Mac, this morning - (310) 393-2913

      I've never had them, but I have seen them on the menu at Alcazar in Encino. Everything else I've had there has been excellent. http://www.al-cazar.com

        I'm glad to know there are other sfeeha fans out there.

        I think my mom's are the best. I've never had them at a restaurant the way we make them (ground lamb, pinenuts, allspice, shaped in small triangles of dough). Sorry! But they really aren't too hard to make, if you want me to dig up the recipe.
