"Devotees from all over South Florida flock to this pocket-size bakery for paper-thin Lebanese flatbreads slightly scorched from a hot oven and topped with labneh, an intensely sour version of salted, Greek-style yogurt. It is nearly as thick as frosting, and delicious. The addition of chopped tomatoes and olives with a bouquet of whole mint leaves fills it out. There is the spiced-meat-and-vegetable-topped pie that inspired him to open the bakery, as well as the za'atar, a thick paste filled with sesame seeds and tinted forest green with the aroma of fresh-cut grass and leaves from plenty of thyme, sumac, and oregano. Za'atar on hot flatbread is one of the world's great flavor combinations. Despite the topnotch fare, Noor is a grab-and-go spot, but once in a while, it's worth sitting down, taking your time, and giving each bite the attention it deserves.
