Looking for sfiha

Hey all you chowhounds out there,

I'm looking for sfiha in the Bay Area. Though I live in the Presidio, I've been known to drive for food so, East or South Bay is alright by me...Thanks!

    A little old but may still be relevant

      The open-face or closed triangle type? If open, then lamacun at Turkish places might suit you. The triangle fatayer used to be made at Good Bites in Belmont but the Arabic offerings have been dwindling over the years, so be sure to check ahead before you make the trip.

        I also recommend Good Bites. It does still have offerings you are looking for the last time we visited there.

          Thanks, Nancee. I dropped into Good Bites last month hoping to grab a lamajoon and none were avaiable. Maybe by special order.

        Zaki Kabob house has a spheeha on its menu. Although I have never tried it - I have pretty much loved most things I have eaten there.

            Just remembered that closer to home, the bakery inside Royal Market on Geary makes the meat-topped, pizza-like type and spinach-filled triangular turnover type.

              also Sunset Deli, Gyros King and Ala Turka for open-faced lachmajun. Have seen but never tried any of these, only those from Royal.

              Royal has a little seen Armenian-Azerbaijani flat bread, called kobat or kubat, stuffed with 6-7 seasonal greens. I like them best in sorrel season. Available mostly on weekends.
