I grew up in Newton, MA right near a great specialty store called Eastern Lamejun whose specialty was:lamejun. (And I'll guess you didn't see that coming.) I've visited Zand's Specialty market on Solano Avenue in Albany a lot and love their limited Middle Eastern product line.
But I'm really looking for a larger specialty market or deli or mail order something or other where I can get:
Lamejun (lahmajun, lahmajoon) Flat pizza like appetizers of bread topped with cumin/mint/lamb mixture.
Bastourma (Basturma, Bastirma) Turkish dried beef (early pastrami)
Soujuk (Soojook etc) raw cured spicy Armenian sausages.
I was desparate enough that I went online to get Eastern Lamejun's website from 3,000 miles away and found they only mail *vegetarian* lamejun(!!!!) I know there's an Armenian community in SF, in Fresno, and in LA--this shouldn't be too impossible. I'm currently in Benicia (listen to the wind whistle thru the empty restaurants) but am happy to travel to Oakland or ??
