"Mutabbaq" (moo-Tahb-bak), an Arabic word you might transliterate any number of ways, means "folded" or "layered." Until recently I knew it best as a Southeast Asian street food whose wrapper is stretched around a savory filling. But a buddy and I flipped over this Middle Eastern version, from which we sampled a palm-sized portion ($1): It was folded around something akin to clotted cream.
