By the way, there's a restaurant in Berkeley named Zaatar after the spice, where you can get a delicious pile of it, plus all the main dishes that go with it. Yum!

Most middleastern grocery stores will sell Za┬┤atar in huge pound bags in case you don't feel like making it yourself. And it keeps its flavor longer if you store it in the fridge.
