North Glendale / La Crescenta / Tujunga

Going to see a friend’s band out there. On Google Maps I saved Mante House and Leo’s Pizza (has some Armenian stuff). Anything else to consider?

There’s not a ton - or not a ton that’s worth talking about in the context of greater LA - but I like La Cabañita for casual sit down DF style Mexican food. Taylor’s is a classic old fashioned steakhouse. Backyard BBQ is mostly an Armenian meat market but they grill kabobs over charcoal and they’re pretty great. I don’t think their Google Maps hours are correct but if you catch Tacos Guelaguetza they’re pretty good, and Angel’s Tijuana Tacos has been setting up a stand in Tujunga sometimes too. Haven’t explored many of the Korean options but Seoul Market has solid pre-packed kimbap and Hello Pizza does pretty well for Korean sweet potato pizza.


I love Schreiner’s German Deli and the neighboring Berolina Bakery in Montrose.

Gelsinger’s Deli (in the same area) closed and reopened, but I haven’t been there since that happened.


got the perfect spot for you. There’s a kebab street cart on Foothill Boulevard about a mile west of the In-N-Out. They grill everything over charcoal. It’s really great, $15 per sandwich, and you get a choice of any meat plus a drink. I like the lule kebab and ask for extra onions. I plan to cover it on Eater at some point, but you can thank me later.


Kebab Zone?

No, this is a literal stand, not a truck. You’ll get more details when I write it up on Eater at some point

thanks for honoring the spirit of the board! down with gatekeeping.


For future reference, Mante House is closed Wednesdays. Also, it closes at 7pm, 5 on Sundays.

@matthewkang doesn’t need to post here at all. I personally don’t find anything hugely annoying w/ his response. He’s got bills to pay, too. YMMV.


isn’t sharing the details of where it is the opposite of gatekeeping? I’m just waiting to share full details until I can confirm them or at least learn more. I visited again last night, and learned the operators don’t speak very much English, but the food is stellar. PorkyBelly listed the place (which I couldn’t find on Yelp).


thanks for the support, you get it.


My read is that @caleb meant


and was applauding you @matthewkang for doing the opposite
