Damascus Bread and Bakery
Damascus Bread and Bakery

This family-run Syrian bakery has been around for more than 70 years, and once you bite into one of their homemade triangular savory pies, you’ll understand why. A whole-wheat pocket is stuffed with fresh ribbons of spinach and onions; an even better bet is the lahmajun, a thinly stretched piece of dough resembling pizza crust, topped with a spicy mixture of ground lamb, peppers, onions and cilantro. No one should leave before indulging the sweet tooth with a bird’s nest, a sphere of crinkled phyllo dough filled with a mound of sticky minced pistachios and honey. There aren’t any seats inside, so grab your goods and head to one of Columbus Park’s benches.

Right down the block from Sahadi's, Damascus is another jem. 

Don't be fooled by the dated exterior, inside is a gold-mine for Middle Eastern dips mezze, pitas and pies. Their falafels are delicious, the $1 cheese cones are addictive and their baba ghanoush is one of my favorites in the city.

I buy their spinach and feta whole wheat pies and freeze them. Then, when I'm running late for work, I take one out of the freezer, heat it up, and voila! Breakfast. I've eaten so many of them, I think I'm going to turn into one. They're delicious!
