Middle Eastern Bakeries
- Frank Leone
Does anyone know the location of a good Lebanese bakery that makes all of the Lahmajun/pizza-esque goods?
I believe I have exactly what you need. The usual Lebanese fair and an array of small pizzas they heat and turn into a wrap with olives, onions, tomatoes and mint. Whatever you want. They also have a date roll that is to kill for.
Now that your mouth is watering is the bad news....I'm in DC and haven't a clue to the name of the place and won't have access to it until I head north in a couple of weeks. I can get it to you then if it is still useful to you then. Or if you live in the area I can probably guide you in. Great place. Sorry I couldn't be more exact about it.
You caught a break....The place is the Andalos Bakery, 266 Boul Lebeau Ville St. Laurnet (Quebec)H4N 1R6 Canada (514)856-0983. It's outside 40 at the Rockland (?) Mall exit. Go around the circle. Take your first left and work your way over to the road that parallels 40. You go under an overpass and on your right a tennis club, continue on to the right about a block and you'll see it on your left. Enjoy.
Boulangerie Farhat, 7719 boul. Saint-Laurent near Villeray.
I'm willing to bet Marché Adonis has everything, too.
When I posted earlier I had just come across Chowhound. I didn't realize how serious everyone is about food, which at my age and metabolism leaves me with 98% body fat. So.... Try heating the date buns about 30 seconds in the microwave to get the dates working. Nice for breakfast with a cup of strong coffee. You might want to stock up as they freeze well. Enjoy.
