Following are some suggestions based on our taste. I will try to keep it to places others haven’t mentioned unless I want to give an extra vote or add some information.
+1 on CF Kitchen. The food is good, has a lot of choices, and the husband and wife owners are quite nice. The only downside is that it can be slow at times.
Lola’s Baja Tacos in Granada Hills. It’s very tasty. We think that we like spicy food but have to order it medium there…
For standard Americanized Mexican, we go to Sol y Luna by CSUN. Same ownership as Las Fuentes, etc. but closer for us. I prefer Freebirds World Burrito in Granada Hills to Chipotle for burritos and bowls as they use grass fed beef which improves the taste.
Owl’s in Porter Ranch for Ice Cream. We think it is quite good and not just “it’s down the street and one of the rare non chain places in Porter Ranch” good. They also have above average frozen yogurt and I appreciate some of their non-sugar added flavors of yogurt.
We love Hummus Bar and Grill in Tarzana for kabobs and great salads and sides. However, if we want food to go close to home, the filet mignon kabobs at Ciceks Chicken in Chatsworth are about $10 with sides and pretty decent.
We finally tried Cici’s Tarzana for their well known pancake menu. I am one that thinks about pancakes for a long time before having them and am usually disappointed. I wasn’t disappointed. There were tons of different choices and I appreciated that you can get them with Pistachios and other less common flavors.
Its a good place. Make sure you get the string cheese added to your cemita. Catty corner to it is Lola’s pollo la brasa (possible spelling mistake) which is good Peruvian chicken with the best soggy French fries I have ever tasted.
Interesting. I live across the street from Old Sasoon Bakery and have always just ordered it as khachapuri.The only thing they ask is if I want one egg or two in it. What’s the difference between khachapuri and Adjarakan khachapuri?
