Nashville has the largest concentrations of Kurds outside northern Iraq. No lie. Look it up. While I know next to nothing about them I DO know that their bread product rocks. Naan is what Kurds eat every day.
I happened upon, by pure chance (and the fact that I thought that an Indian spice shop would be open at 7 in the morning, but that is another story), one of the biggest naan bakeries in Nashville. It is behind a Kurdish food store (that just so happens to be next to the Indian spice shop and does open at 7 am). The shop also carries some AWESOME smoked sardines...a recent obsession of mine.
I couldn't help myself.
On the left is extra virgin olive oil, garlic, salt, black pepper, and sardines. Moments after the pic was taken it was doused in Romano cheese.
On the right is a classic with a twist: crushed tomatoes, sardines, garlic and mozz.
The left dominated the right.
I found a new favorite snack.
