Herb- and meat-topped flatbreads top the menu at Zait & Za'atar and Wraps Xpress

Here's an early look at what's coming in this week's Food section:

Are you familiar with manakeesh? They're pizza-like flatbreads that are as thin as gauzy sheets of vellum, an herb-rubbed and meat-smeared gateway to the eastern Mediterranean. And they're the specialty of the house at Zait & Za'atar and Wraps Xpress in Anaheim. The city's Little Arabia is already crowded with similarly specialized Lebanese bakeries, but Zait & Za'atar may be the most accessible. That's why it's our Find of the week.
