We’re relatively simple people. When we hear the words “Fluffy dough stuffed with 15 types of herbs and spices,” we immediately head to our computers and order it for takeout. Which usually doesn’t happen outside of, like, a Subway situation, so when we came across the titular Armenian flatbreads at Zhengyalov Hatz in Glendale, our “add to cart” reflexes immediately kicked into high gear. Each zhengyalov hatz is served nice and warm, swaddled in a thick, whole wheat dough, and packed with a fragrant medley of greens, including minced spinach, beetroot leaves, scallions, spring onions, kale, and mint - which, in our opinion, is a much better alternative to the foot-long meatball marinaras we used to crush in high school.
