where to get it? I'm pretty sure these exist at some Lebanese bakeries or restaurants.

Hmmm. Someone should consolidate this thread and Kevin's below on Syrian pizza - because you just answered one of my questions about Partamian's. Did there used to be an Armenian community in that neighborhood?
I didn't see any boreg or monti when I went, I'll have to go back. I did love that lahmajune (sp?) though.

they are both good. i kind of like the mom and pop vibe at arax. both also have very good herbaceous maenesh and boureg. in the bready folded into triangle style, not the filo-ish crispy bosnian style.
i was told by an armenian that there was some place in saint vincents food court in downtown that there was amazing lahmajune but i havent found it (or really looked that hard)
re: The Oracle
A neighborhood friend brought a pack of those - I'm assuming that's what they are, flat golden disks with herbs on top - to our party Saturday night, and nobody touched them. Too bad - I've been warming them in the toaster oven for lunch, trying different embellishments, though all they really need to my taste is a bit of salt.
He brought some folded spinach-and-cheese pie thingies, too, I assume from the same source. Like spanakopita (sp?), only with a plain dough instead of filo. Also very tasty.
