Turkish Pide Bread

OakCliffGuy Jan 22, 2012 03:02 PM

Does anyone know of any bakery in the Metroplex that sells the Turkish flatbread known as pide? I'm in North Oak Cliff but am all over Dallas and Fort Worth for work so it doesn't have to be close to home. After conducting a casual search and coming up empty though, I'm thinking I might just have to break down and bake some myself. But it would be nice if someone could save me from my inadequate baking skills!

    You might ask the owners of Cafe Istanbul in Inwood Village on Lovers Lane in Dallas.
    Just a suggestion.

      they definitely have it at Cafe Istanbul. I think you have to ask for it now - they serve some sort of lavash by default. The pide varies in quality, but the stuff I ate today was delicious. Warm from the oven, medium brown crust (not too pale, nor over-crisp) and a moist spongy texture in the interior.

      Closest thing you are going to get ir Iraqi flatbread.....similar to Tandoori Naan....he even labels it as Tandoori Naan but it is not.

      The bakery is Sherwani Bakery on the SEC of Spring Creek and Custer. Stark interior but he will make you the bread fresh if you are willing to wait or you can call him ahead of time and pick it up. 214-404-7199

        LH: Thanks for the tip. I went to Sherwani Bakery today. I didn't call ahead or anything, just kind of a spur of a moment stop in, but the owner couldn't have been nicer, and he had plenty of still warm flat bread. 4 pieces the size of man hole covers for $3. He also had what looked like baklava, but was filled with cream instead of chopped nuts.

        I would call World Food warehouse in Richardson
        They have a number of different flat breads. I would think they can get you pretty close.
