Restaurant: Zhengyalov Hatz
Location: 318 E. Broadway (Glendale)
Type of restaurant: Armenian
We stipulated: Maria and I continue "New Food Sundays," inspired by the Los Angeles Times' latest 101 Restaurants special issue. We were looking for a quick lunch that would be almost snack-like, since we had a big breakfast. Zhengyalov Hatz fit the bill, and it's healthy too.
They stipulated: There's just one major entree on the menu (along with one dessert.) Per Eater LA, "Zhengyalov hatz, the namesake flatbread in a Glendale bakery that opened this past November, combines 15 types of minced greens and herbs, including spinach, beetroot leaves, scallions, cilantro, onion, sorrel for a hint of sourness, and of course secrets. The owner tasked local farmers to grow greens and herbs to match the flavor back home."
What we ordered: Zhengyalov Hatz ($6.99): Flat bread with 15 types of fresh cut herbs, top quality flour, sunflower oil, salt. We got two.
High point: The price, the uniqueness and the simplicity of it.
Low point: Yeah, I suppose it would be nice to have a few more options or add-ons.
Overall impression: I love that such a unique snack and food concept is available here in Glendale. It's something filling and fast to eat on the go.
Will we return: It might be awhile, but I can see craving something like this again.
