Inexpensive, Fun, Interesting SFV? Have to Avoid nuts!
I just don't know what I want. I can go for ethnic of all sorts, as long as I don't risk nut contamination!
Should I expand my range-go out to Little Ethiopia? Explore Pasadena? Culver City?
I dunno, at a loss!
Dinner or lunch..
You know, I went to Brent's, waited, and waited, ate, and wasn't all that impressed.
I found the Matzoh ball soup pretty "eh" and the rest of thie dishes similar. Maybe I had the wrong dishes.
Also, they waitress dropped our bill without asking if we wanted anything els. We felt sort of hustled out the door.
that is your classic brents. just dropping the bill at your table as you are eating. it may seem weird at first, but every waitress and waiter does that there. just something to get used to.
brents is the best deli in l.a. try their sandwiches (turkey, turkey pastrami, roast beef or pastrami are all excellent) next time. their sweet n sour soup is delish and their burgers are actually really good.
