Where's your favourite lahmajoun?

I only discovered lahmajoun recently, thanks to another 'hound. For those who don't know, it's a very, very thin flatbread spread with a ground beef, tomato/veggie and spice mixture. Think Middle Eastern pizzas. They seem to be sold in packages of a half dozen or so 8 - 10 inch rounds. They freeze beautifully and heat up in a toaster oven in no time. So far, I've tried the lahmajoun from Arz and Lebanese Bakery. The ones from Lebanese Bakery have a great kick to them and a bit more topping. But I can eat more of the ones from Arz because they are less spicy.

So I think I may be on a lahmajoun quest. I'd love to taste the different renditions around the city. Where do you buy your lahmajoun? Any particular aspect make it stand out from the rest?

Thanks!

ETA: apparently, these are often used at wraps for veggies or meat. I'm pretty happy with them on their own...
