Ta-eem- chicken pargiot probably my favorite lunch or to go dinner in weho area
Dr. Sandwich - really good chicken shawerma
Sushi tama - sushi lunch!
Republique - not as good as dinner but also the pastries are awesome
Uncle Pauline’s deli- great Italian sandwich
Ggiata- never been since it opened after we moved but the sandwiches look pretty
Jon and Vinny’s- if you can get over their whole opaque service charge system
Bludsos- not as good as the og location but still pretty damn good
Oste- great mussels and a very unique style of pizza
I second Oste. Really great upscale neighborhood Italian spot, with a more interesting menu than the standard Italian in LA, the highlight being the pinsa style pizza (and apparently the mussels, too). Their pasta is pretty great, too. I have yet to eat a dish at Oste that I did not enjoy.
Petrossian in West Hollywood: One needs to reserve lunch via OpenTable, I believe. #DontTellClayfu
Cafe Angelino on 3rd: Thin, thin, perfect Roman style pizzas (margherita and funghe pizzas are both bomb), and great salads and pastas to boot!
Tail O’ the Pup in West Hollywood: Is it kitschy? Yeah, probably. But hey, it’s an L.A. tradition. And that chili dog is immensely better than Pink’s. AND, you can potentially bangbang by walking over to Awan for Indonesian-style dessert!
I so wanted to love them, but I’ve tried four of their sandwiches and they all pretty much taste the same. They also are really liberal with their chili spread. We could barely finish one during a Dodger game we brought them too.
Took this Ta-Eem recommendation on Wednesday. Still eating the shawarma on Friday. Great texture, huge flavor. Fluffy pita reminded me of Oui nearby. If I’m in this neighborhood I might do Otus or (more happily) Noree Thai.
This was a great lunch!
That fluffy pita and the salads were first rate…and the chicken smelled so good as they were cooking it. I loved the fresh salads and eggplant best.
Note for future use: they close at 1:45PM on Fridays. I was the last order of the day so took my order to go.
Eggplant is my fav too! Next time ask for the baba, beets, and the carrot salad. Also you can get a half fries/ half parsley salad if you want. Totally forgot that they close so early on fridays and aren’t open on Saturday due to the shabbas glad you were able to get your order in!
