Some bite-sized bakery news out of Little Armenia today, as Joshua Lurie of FoodGPS says a newcomer named N1 Bakery has moved into the neighborhood, selling lavash bread and positioning themselves as a strong new contender.
Sure enough, signage for the corner location reads "home of the finest traditional Mediterranean flatbread," a big claim considering popular local mini-chain Sasoun Bakery sits right across the street. Signage for the bakery has actually been up since last fall, though the company has been primarily focused on wholesale production at places like Verdugo Produce and Deli until now.
Inside the small takeaway space on Santa Monica Boulevard you’ll find more than just lavash, with straight options for sliced whole wheat bread and traditional matnakash, pouri, and more. Of course, N1 isn't the only place in town focusing on Middle Eastern-style housemade flatbreads. Saj Bakery up in Granada Hills is among the more powerful Valley options around, and even Atwater Village favorite Dune makes and grills-to-order their own breads for their falafel sandwiches. N1 Bakery keeps daily hours from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m..
