What is lahmajune?
Lahmajune (also lahmacun or lahmajoun), meaning "meat with dough" from Arabic, is an item of prepared food originating in the early Turkish cuisine of the Levant, consisting of a round, thin soft piece of dough topped with spicy sauce and minced meat and straight leaved parsley , (most commonly beef and lamb). Lahmajune is often served sprinkled with lemon juice and wrapped around vegetables, including pickles, tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce, and parsley, cabbage salad or cilantro; atypical variants may be found as wraps for kebab meat or sauces.
