Chowhound challenge - cheese manakish, anywhere in LA??

Here's a challenge for all you foodies..anyone know of a Lebanese bakery in town that serves cheese manakish?

I lived in Dubai for a few years, and was reminiscing about Dubai and trying to remember the name of the "Dubai pizza" we used to grab after a late night - and finally (Google is your friend!!) figured it out - its called a cheese manakish. Here's what is looks like (BTW, Al Reef Bakery is an incredible bakery in Dubai). I've tried the Armenian pizza, and the Georgian, and while those are quite tasty, don't have quite the lightness and taste of the manakish.
