Any Armenian will swear that Partamian's Bakery is the best spot for lahmajune — flatbread covered in a piquant layer of smashed lamb — in all of Southern California. In addition to being the Lahmajune King, the Mid-City bakery has been cranking out the same recipe for 60-plus years. It also boasts a heart-warming history. When owner and founder Leon Partamian died in 2007, he willed the bakery not to his family but to two of his longtime employees, loyal artisans of the Armenian staple, both from Mexico. So if you've got a hankering for pan Mexicano, you don't have to make a second trip, because this place also sells a scrumptious assortment of fresh pan dulce. 5410 W. Adams Blvd., West Adams.
