Photographer's Note

Lahmacun is a dish of Arabic origin consisting of a round, thin piece of dough topped with minced meat (most commonly beef and lamb). Lahmacun is often served sprinkled with lemon juice and wrapped around vegetables- including pickles, tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce, and parsley or cilantro.
Lahmacun can be found in many countries with sizeable Near and Middle Eastern communities. In Canada, there are Turkish and Lebanese restaurants specializing in lahmacun. In many German, Dutch, Belgian, and English towns (North London in particular) there are Turkish-menu restaurants that sell kebab and lahmancun. Lahmacun may also be wrapped around vegetables -like lettuce, red cabbage, and onions, amongst others- and topped with kebab meat and sauce (such as a spicy tomato or mild yogurt base). In South America there are Syrian, Turkish and Armenian communities with associated restaurants, and a prepackaged frozen version called Lehmeyun may be found in the markets.
