Where to find lamejun (lahm bi' ajeen)?

dave-id | Dec 2, 200412:19 PM

Does anyone know where to get Armenian lamejun in Chicago? As a youngster I lived in Watertown, Mass. which has a huge Armenian population. I grew to love these little ground lamb "pizzas". Although, comparing lamejun to pizza is completely misleading. They are both baked circles of dough topped with stuff, but that is where the similarity ends.

I know other cultures also make this dish. I think the Iraqis call it laham ajeen (or lahm bi' ajeen in arabic). The Syrians have a version they call sfiha. Anyhow, if someone can point me towards a bakery that specializes in this middle-eastern treat, I would greatly appreciate it.
