Syrian Bread

janzy Feb 6, 2007 09:40 AM

where can I get real syrian bread in the greater Boston area and not the stuff the supermarkets sell.
Its gone now, but there was a place across from the Holy Cross Cathedral in the south End.

    Russo's in Watertown has -- what seems to me -- a very good selection. Don't forget the (many) Middle Eastern groceries on Mt. Auburn St. in Watertown...

      A few more sources:
      Georges and Bays stae in worcester
      Cedars market in Norwood.
      Lawrence area has a few bakeries.

        Arax Market in Watertown, carries all of these, as well. i think for all of the out of town Syrian/ Aemnian/ Turkish/ Russian bakeries, Arax has the largest selection. i always choose mine there on the basis of what is freshest.

        Near East Bakery on Washington Street in West Roxbury - toward Dedham. Russo's in Watertown sells bread from Montreal that is, in my opinion, better but it's hit or miss if they have it.

          The Armenian grocers/bakers on Mt. Auburn Street in Watertown have a really great selection.

            #71 bus from Harvard Sq. to Coolidge Sq. on Mt. Auburn for Sevan Bakery, Arax Market or Massis Bakery, all within 2 blocks. Also right in the SE is the Syrian Grocery Importing Company at 270 Shawmut Ave.

            Droubi's-- Roslindale Square or Near East Bekery. Many of the wonderful shops in Watertown.

              Janzy, there are some great places up in the Merrimack Valley (Methuen) but I don't know if you want to go that far? George's Bakery and Korbani's bakery in Methuen have it and are fantastic (other yummy stuff too)

                Arax Market in Watertown carries these, and more. From Montreal, from Rhode Island (Hellenic bakery is my favorite)...
