Lamajeune (Armenian Pizza) in SFV?

I have loved lamajeune ever since my Armenian coworker introduced them to me about 10-12 years ago. I used to get them at a little armenian grocery in Reseda, but the place closed a couple years ago. Anyone know where I can get fresh (not frozen) lamajeune? I'm in the West Valley but work in Van Nuys. If they have the mini/small lamajeunes too, that would be an added bonus.

  1. Jon's Market on Sepulveda at Sherman Way has an Armenian Bakery which does a variety of items, including lamajeune.

    There is also an Armenian bakery/sandwich shop on either Victory or Vanowen, sorry I can't be more specific on that.

    Lastly there's Armenian Pizza & Bakery at 6219 Van Nuys blvd.

      Try Tarzana Armenian Grocery or Deli on Ventura in Tarzana. I''m not certain if they carry it, but it's worth a phone call.

    2. Not in the SFV, but if youa re ever in Santa Clarita , Manoushee has some terific ones

      1. This does not help you but if your are in the area and you really want to eat the best in LA, check this out.

            Burger Boy,

            Thank you for that information!!!!

              Thanks, BB. Those really are great photos of the customers and bakers. (I especially like the one of the older lady chowing down!) I'm going to try Partamian -- it all looks so good.

          2. There's an armenian market on Coldwater Canyon and Sherman Way on the southeast corner, that has all that stuff. A nice small market. My armenian friends swear by it and they order about a dozen at a time and freeeze them. They told me to order double meat. They love them, and this is their food. I just bought beautiful fresh cherries too.

              I have had the ones from Partamian's and they are incredible. I can eat a dozen in 10 minutes they are so good!

                I think you mean on Coldwater and Vanowen called Anush. Don't know if they have the pizza but the rest of their items are great.

                1. re: Hughlipton

                  You're right about the location, but they do have them, a friend orders a dozen a week with extra meat, and they freeze them too.

                  1. re: paprkutr

                    Now that we are on the same page I will certainly give it a try. I'm just so sold on the cooked lule kebab it's hard for me to order anything else. I'll be strong.

              2. Three recommendations:

                1) "Armenian Pizza" on Van Nuys Blvd., just north of Victory or Erwin (I believe). It is on the opposite side of the street from courthouse. They also have very tasty Armenian desserts. They have two sizes of lamajeune. The "large" is about 6 inches in diameter for $0.75.

                2) Dream Bakery on Sherman Way near Coldwater.

                3) Assuming it is still there, there also is a small Armenian bakery in the large shopping center on Laurel Canyon where the Sears is located.

                I prefer the crust on the lamajeune at Armenian Pizza, but the flavor of the meat may be slightly better at Dream.

                  As a follow-up, "Armenian Pizza" is closed.

                  I've had good Lamajeune from Sweet One Bakery & Kebab Factory. This is an unknown gem in the San Fernando Valley on Oxnard, just west of Woodman. It's part bakery/grocery and they also do excellent cooked meats. I particularly love the quail and cornish game hen. The prices are ridiculously low -- a full cooked, cornish game hen is $4.99, three to four small lamb chops are $7.99. They also have beef and lamb offal on the menu, so if you like sweetbreads, liver or heart, they are under $5.00. I also recently got two whole trout for $7.00. (Those are ala carte prices where the meat is served with pita bread and raw onions.) The only things I haven't liked from there are the kebabs, which tend to be a little dry, and the beorek. Their pastries also are great.
