There used to be a bakery in Montebello on Beverly Blvd next to KFC that made the most delicious Armenian (flat) bread. Fresh out of the oven in the a.m. They've gone out of business and I'm wondering if anyone knows of another place that carries this bread, preferably close to the area.
And what kind of flat bread? Lavash? Or they have a flat, almost chewy one that has malt (it's yummy!. though I don't know the name.)
Or it's not really a flatbread, it looks like a giant wheel flatish (but puffy) with a hole in the center and it's called Pouri. That's a fun one too.
I agree with Bob Brooks - Jons Markets are an easy and helpful stop. If they don't bake it there, they get deliveries fresh, almost daily.

Yes, Yes & Yes! Partamians makes fresh peda every morning and THE BEST LAHMAJUNE in Los Angeles! The original owner, Levon Partamian, passed away a few years ago. His family got together and gave the bakery to the 2 men that have been working for him for 40+ years, which is what he wanted. They have kept the recipes intact and are making the best lahmajune in L.A..

Check out Taron Armenian Bakery in Glendale (1117 S Glendale Ave). Their lahmajune is outstanding -- I preferred it to Partamian's. They also have lots of other breads, varied by the day of the week and the time you're there. I loved that they run out of stuff all the time, which means that you can only buy what they're removing from the oven at that moment. Fresh-from-the-oven lahmajune is outstanding... And the tahini bread is off the charts good.
I know it's not Armenian, but Tashkent in the Valley carries a pretty broad selection of breads from Partamian, Taron, and similar bakeries.
