I just finished drafting a short story that references lahmajoun, and now I'm craving some. For those who don't know, it's a Middle Eastern snack of a thin, flat bread spread and baked with a flavorful mixture of ground lamb, spices, and I think tomatoes and onions and things like that. We used to get it when I was a kid at an Armenian church in New York, which had a festival in honor of a saint, quite possibly the patron saint of deliciousness.
Eventually, I'm going to use one of the recipes I see online and make some, but I'd like to find an authentic purveyor first.
I know it's a shot in the dark, but is there anywhere in the Pacific Northwest one can find authentic lahmajoun? I'm in Seattle, but if there's somewhere else in Washington or Oregon, please share that too; I'll keep it in mind for future road trips.
For those googling it, or familiar with a different spelling, lahmajoun is spelled (and probably pronounced) a lot of different ways.
