10 options for the beefy flatbreads
Dough with meat: these three words contain multitudes. Whether written as lahmajun, lahem bi ajin, lahmacun, or lahmajoun (as is often the case in Montreal), this thin flatbread with a topping of minced beef, onions, tomatoes, herbs, and, sometimes, red peppers, is traditionally sold in Armenian, Syrian, Turkish, and Lebanese bakeries, reflecting the regions from which it hails. These days, new purveyors are joining those that have been around for decades, giving the perfectly thin “pizza” a boost in popularity across the city. Each of the options on this map offers up different (and tasty) takes on lahmajoun — ready to grab and go.
