We have relatives who are staying in Valley Village, California for the winter. There's a chance that we will be visiting them. I would appreciate suggestions of kosher restaurants to eat at in that area. I'm not familiar with California so I'm not really sure where Valley Village is. I'm assuming it's in the Los Angeles area. I've also heard there's a fairly large Jewish population there so I'm guessing there might be quite a few kosher restaurants. We're interested in all types, dairy, meat, vegetarian, Chinese, you name it. Thanks for your help.
Los Angeles has the second largest Jewish community in the US after NYC
It's hardly just "fairly large"...
Go to the Golan Restaruant in North Hollywood. Very good food, lousy service. They have deli, traditional eastern europe fair, chinese and middle eastern swarma kabaobs... It's Glatt certified by RCC
Hi, Naomi -
I've lived in L.A. for a few years and am not familiar with Valley Village. I'd be glad to recommend a couple places if you could tell me what part of LA that's in/near. Or, better yet, search for "kosher los angeles" in the search function and find a TON of stuff that's already written by far more knowledgeable Chowhounds than I...or post your question there.
re: Lisa Bee
Their address is on Burbank Boulevard and the zip code is 91607. I don't know if that gives you more of an idea where Valley Village is or not. I think it's near North Hollywood. I'll try doing a search like you suggested. I would like to hear about some of your favorite places. Even if they aren't really close to where my family is I'd still be interested in hearing about them. We'll be doing some sight seeing so we'd be doing lots of driving around anyhow. Thanks for your help.
Pat's on Pico in West LA-ish is pretty good Italian for a nice meal...Kabob & Chinese on Santa Monica near the 405 for inexpensive Chinese...and I hear Magic Carpet on Pico near La Cienaga is GREAT MIddle Eastern. There's also a number of small coffee shops and bakeries int he "Fairfax District" (on Beverly east of Fairfax, on Fairfax b/t Beverly and Melrose). Good luck - have a great trip - let me know if you encounter anything worth raving about!
