  • Dining Review: North Shore comes up a bit flat

    Dining Review: North Shore comes up a bit flat
    Verdugo Hills Hospital workers in O.R. scrubs sit beneath palm tree paintings and surfboard ceiling fans with a wistful look in their eyes. The wall-sized map of Oahu’s famous North Shore looks down at them as if to say, “Someday … your...
  • A near-perfect taste of Italy

    A near-perfect taste of Italy
    Going to Briganti, I learned an important lesson: Don’t be fooled by first impressions. With so many charming restaurants in historic buildings in South Pasadena, why go to a place with prefab windows and faux distressed bricks? Because the food...
  • Dishing up a spicy tradition

    Dishing up a spicy tradition
    The Loguercio family has seen good times and bad from behind the 24-seat counter at Chili John’s in Burbank since 1990. They say they are better people for the experience, but with rising food costs and the loss of a patriarch, the family faces a...
  • Tasty tahini chicken and lots more

    Tasty tahini chicken and lots more
    I don’t know about you, but anything called a tahini chicken salad sandwich piques my curiosity. So I made my way down to the recently opened Tanya’s Lunch Box on Glendale Avenue to try one. It’s a crispy, flavorful, unique sandwich...
  • Simple, fresh food with or without the bun

    Simple, fresh food with or without the bun
    Call it the naked lunch. No, we’re not talking about the William S. Burroughs junkie novel (do junkies even eat?), but a novel lunch truck where you order sandwich-style or without the bun — ”naked.” Clean Street Food, the...
  • Tangy tastes of Peru in Glendale

    Tangy tastes of Peru in Glendale
    Andean music plays on the stereo and photos of Lima line the walls of Con Sazon Authentic Peruvian Cuisine. The straw mats, the folk art and even the exposed ventilation ducts and florescent lights give you that pleasant wayfaring feeling of being in a...
  • Ron Kaye: False ideologies, phony principles

    Independence Day seems a fitting time to take stock of how we’re doing as a nation. It’s hard not to wonder what would have happened if the cast of characters we have sent to Washington to lead us today had been present in Philadelphia in...
  • Fish tacos a great catch at Salsa Grill

    Fish tacos a great catch at Salsa Grill
    Salsa Grill, which opened last September in Burbank, is a keeper, whether you come for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I tried breakfast and then came back a week later for lunch. The fish tacos, served with rice and beans and only available on Fridays, were...
  • Small Wonders: I scream, you scream, sometimes we drive from Long beach for ice cream

    Ice cream. Two words that bring a smile to your face, a tickle in your tummy and a cure for what ails you on a long, hot day. Though our kids get a summer break, the world and its trials don't. Now, in addition to camp, work, sports, cooking, cleaning,...
  • Nothing fancy, but good fusion

    Nothing fancy, but good fusion
    When a menu ranges from Mediterranean to Mexican to seafood to burgers, you can usually expect at best mediocre food. It’s like going to a movie starring Jim Belushi, Eric Roberts and Carmen Electra. Gerlach’s Grille in Pasadena is the...
  • Bites and Sights: A home cooked meal at Mamitas

    Bites and Sights: A home cooked meal at Mamitas
    I’m not sure I knew what Peruvian food was until my husband took me to Mamitas Peruvian restaurant in Glendale about five years ago. One taste of their spicy green chili sauce and tasty entrees and I was hooked. The modest setting of the...
  • The sound of a delicious bargain

    The sound of a delicious bargain
    It’s comforting as you’re waiting for the pupusas you just ordered at a neighborhood Salvadoran joint to hear the slap, slap, slap of hands smacking masa into fat, tortilla-shaped discs. Your mouth starts watering, knowing the corn dough is...
