Sipan is located on the northern fringe of Glendale, uncomfortably close to the hellscape that is America’s largest IKEA, but don’t let that deter you - this small, Middle Eastern bakery is a must-visit. It’s hard to go wrong with anything off Sipan’s menu, but ordering a bunch of beoreks - Middle Eastern pastries filled with everything from feta cheese to spicy beef - needs to be priority. You’ll buy a dozen for your office and then eat half of them in your car before you get back.
