Famina Now Open in Culver City

annifran Nov 19, 2006 04:56 AM

Today was grand opening of the new Famina store in Culver City at Overland and Venice, right next to California Pizza Kitchen. Their prepared foods section was extremely well stocked with items I've not seen at their other stores. This should be a good location for them since most often there is ample parking.

      My husband and I just came back from Famima 15 minutes ago! Glad to hear that they'll have patio seating, we were just saying that that's what was missing...

          What is it? DH works in C.C. and is always on the lookout for decent lunch or dinner choices. Is it only a 'to-go' place?

            Basically think Japanese 7-11. but the selection makes it worth admitting to going

            You can look through the website and see what they have at http://www.famima-usa.com

            Take Care

            BTW it's "Famima!!!" A place called "Famina" would probably have no food :)
