Beverly Soon Tofu Los Angeles, CA
Great Korean restaurant serving all things tofu. The tofu cauldron varies in intensity from plain to hot, a tasty broth which cloaks the soy chunks and add-ins of your choice (beef, clams, shrimp, veggies, etc.). Waitresses will then break a raw egg over it, which eventually cooks just right in the boiling stew. <br> Great tofu sensation and it will satisfy even the heartiest eater.
Sa Rit Gol Korean Restaurant Los Angeles, CA
Tiny well served restaurant offering the tastiest Korean side dishes. The waitresses actually will help you grill the meat on your table. Try the pa-jun for an appetizer. For ten bucks you get a corean-style crepe will all kinds of goodies embedded in it. It's a treat! They load you up so much that you'll barely have enough room to put your beer bottles. Dress casual.
Paru's Indian Vegetarian Restaurant Los Angeles, CA
<br> Enter your own secret garden at this southern Indian vegetarian. Choose to sit at plant-shrouded outdoor tables or inside booths surrounded by vivid clutter. This is down-home food of southern India, based largely on lentils, rice and vegetables. Good zesty starters are bonda, fried potato balls with coconut and mango chutneys; and dal, a spicy lentil soup served with a crunchy papad wafer. The spinach and lentil curry is enhanced with a poori puffed bread or a masala dosa, a potato-stuffed lentil crepe. Especially eye-watering is sambar, a lentil gravy good with rice. Lunch specials such as Mini Thali provide an array of tastes, including samplings of raita, dill-flavored, cold yogurt salad and lemon pickle. Sweet tooths should save room for hot almond halwa, a caramel-y nut paste infused with saffron. <br> <br> <br> <br>
Woo Lae Oak Of Seoul Restaurant Los Angeles, CA
Gourmet Korean fare served by gracious and informative staff, especially to those who are new to Korean cuisine. Savor the steak tartare bi bim bap, a jumble of delicate meat, rice and cold, spicy vegetables. Fish lovers will enjoy the tantalizing black cod, baked in soy till it's tender and sweet. Best of all is the Korean barbecue, with traditional cuts like spicy pork and kalbi (boneless short ribs) ruling supreme.
Anarkali Los Angeles, CA
Hit-or-miss Indian let down by the uneven pricing. The dinner for two is disappointing with its paltry portions of tandoori chicken, curries, vegetable soup and rice would better suit one hungry diner. <br> <br>
Chameau Los Angeles, CA
A small and fetching French-Moroccan restaurant whose subtle décor and well-thought-out menu make me hope for a new neighborhood place with as much substance as style. Try the pan-roasted sea bass, it comes with a tagine of tiny-dice squashes and onions, sautéed with pomegranate molasses and spiked with about $6 worth of pine nuts. And from the dessert menu, Pumpkin cheesecake
Asakuma Los Angeles, CA
Asakuma caters to an upscale business crowd with sophisticated decor and carefully primped dishes. The dining room is split into two sections: a formal, sit-down area with sleek, honey-colored wood paneling, and a more casual sushi bar occupied by the jeans-wearing crowd. The Food is delicate, Japanese entrees are delivered with flair thanks to fancy plating and some unexpected touches. A palm-sized, buttery, black cod filet, glimmering with a slightly sweet soy sauce marinade, melts in your mouth. Other sushi selections are also consistently first-rate.
U-Zen Japanese Restaurant Los Angeles, CA
Cozy restaurant serving standard Japanese fare. Try the "dynamite" appetizer, a baked casserole of scallops and mushrooms swimming in an indulgent, thick mayonnaise sauce. Some of the entrées are less favourable.
Noshi Sushi Los Angeles, CA
Sushi that's more filling than flavorful is served to an eclectic crowd with time to burn. Everyone starts with miso soup, strong and chock-full of tofu. For the generous servings alone, the sushi is good value, though few orders shine.
Taix French Restaurant Los Angeles, CA
Probably not the best French restaurant in town, but it's homey and comforting--with prices to match. The traditional Taix dinners include soup, salad and dessert and hover around $15 per person. Has an extensive wine list is known for its cut-rate prices, so many people suffer the average food for a superior, low-priced bottle.
Chianti & Cucina Los Angeles, CA
Great italian food and the service is second to none. The flavours they add to each dish are exquisite and everything served is beautifully presented. If you want a top notch authentic italian in the vicinity then look no further
Water Grill Los Angeles, CA
A sprawling seafood restaurant in the historic Pacific Center with a lively bar scene, top-notch raw bar and setting reminiscent of a steakhouse, only it's not. <br> The service is among the best around; crisp and attentive but not a bit stiff. <br> Try the Seafood platter and oysters, wonderful
Miceli's Italian Restaurant And Pizzeria Los Angeles, CA
Very loud restaurant with lots of basic Italian fare with large portions. Pizza seems to be what they do best. Atmosphere reminds me of a movie set for an Italian restaurant in Naples. A newly revised wine list helps. Come for the fun and don’t be too critical of what comes out of the kitchen. Popular with large groups celebrating special occasions. Fun but not for serious Italian food aficionados.
Mario's Peruvian & Seafood Restaurant Los Angeles, CA
Take a break from tacos and go here to get a wide variety of foods from Latin America. Recommend the lomo saltado (beef and vegetable stir fry) and in times of lent, the saltado de mariscos (seafood and vegetable stir fry).
El Taurino Los Angeles, CA
El Taurino is my favorite mexican restaurant. The area is far from glitzy, but the food is incomparable. The burritos and milanesa sandwiches are exceptional. The decor (hanging bull's head and matador photographs) adds to the enjoyment and provides a feeling of Mexican authenticity. <br>
Acapulco's Mexican Restraunt Los Angeles, CA
Great service by attentative staff - Food: Super crispy, hot and tasty nachos, salsa served in individual small carafes with little bowls to pour it in. Perfectly spiced, spicy, but not too spicy. Acapulcos Steak Fajitas all in large portions. Dress is casual and appropriate for children <br>
El Jarrito Mexican Restaurant & Deli Los Angeles, CA
There’s nothing but genuine Mexican food at this place. They have a great variety of Mexican dishes ranging from freshly simmered rice, homemade-tasting refried beans, pozole that tastes like somebody's grandmother cooked it. Superb for the money
El Floridita Restaurant Los Angeles, CA
Great small lively cuban restaurant with live music on some nights. Named after Hemingway's favorite hangout in Havana... weekend reservations suggested. Parking available, reservations recommended
Palermo Italian Restaurant Los Angeles, CA
I was a frequent consumer of the delicious food which Palermo's serves, so I was used to eating what I consider to be the best pizza anywhere. Having been to 48 out of 50 states, I feel qualified to make that statement. This is the best pizza you will find
Farfalla Trattoria Italiana Los Angeles, CA
Gnocchi and pesto pizza are out of this world. The chef knows just how long to cook fish and steak, never dry or undersone. I would kill for their fish supplier...always fresh. never fishy. Pastas are outstanding, especially the pink sauces. Only drawback is the dessert...probably supplied frozen and mass-produced. Weekends can be very busy. Crowded, small tables, but in a bustling, fun kind of way.
