Markouk, esfiha, and other elusive Lebanese eats

Raoul Duke | Mar 27, 2006 12:02 PM

Anyone know of any Lebanese bakeries (or any other kind of bakery, for that matter) that sells markouk? It's a very thin flatbread, usually well over a foot in diameter. In some places it's known as marouk.

I'm also curious if anyone knows of a bakery or restaurant that sells esfiha (sometimes aka "sfiha"), a kind of Lebanese meat pie. This may be a stretch, but, double bonus points if anyone knows of any places that also have stuffed cousa (aka kousa, coosa, etc.).

I'm primarily looking for places in or around the city, if possible, since I don't have a car. I just googled the boards and didn't find much promising info. Hopefully somebody's got some new leads.
