Location Description:

Their glorious sphihas (12 different choices) are as yummy as ever-made fresh and before your eyes, put in a massive oven that turns a former disc of dough into a crunchy, soft treasure. A zaatar sphiha is probably the best: Something about the desiccated multispice rub spread across baked flatbread is just perfect. I also enjoy the soujouk with cheese, the spicy Armenian-style chorizo mixing well with its salty counterpoint. And the cheese-and-egg sphiha tastes like the Levantine take on a breakfast burrito.
