Taron Bakery


EDITOR'S NOTE: An updated version of this article (30 November 2023) is available as part of the Historical section of our Substack page. Check that out here:
Back in 2015, I had not been to Los Angeles for over a decade and went straight for Little Armenia my first morning in town, to tiny Taron Bakery. You can smell it from a block or two away, the freshly made items wafting down the ugly grey blocks of East Hollywood.

A visual menu has replaced this old board, unfortunately.

Decisions are not too hard here, only a couple items are for sale. When you see an old establishment like this with such a limited menu, you know they make those well. The price differences have mostly to do with size, each different beorek is made a different size and shape so you always know the one you are choosing. The largest and most expensive is the spicy cheese beorek (below), a flat sandal-shaped pastry with pointed ends.

Grab a bottle of yogurt drink, called tahn in Armenia to accompany your breakfast. They have the Turkish version here called ayran, but basically they are the same. There are a couple tables outside if relaxing with your purchase appeals to you, and usually an old Armenian or two is here alone doing the same.
