Cook's Double Dutch

Has anyone tried this place lately? My wife is very veggie and I'm not, I thought this might be a solution.

      I am veggie, my partner is not. We used to go at least once a week when we worked around the corner. Stand outs:

      Exotic Salad (without chicken)
      Daily specials (always at least one veggie option)
      Sweet potatoe fries
      decent veggie burger
      Turkey meatloaf
      Diet cream soda
      Tri tip

        And (IIRC) if you can go on a Wed. night their wine is half off, bottles and by the glass.

    2. Went there with some friends not too long ago. The food was pretty good, although the entree's were much better than the appetizers which weren't as good as their descriptions. My boyfriend had the brisket and liked it although it wasn't comparable to his moms. My stuffed pork roast was delicious and was served with the grain of the day that happened to be lavender rice. It was the best part of my meal!

      Service was incredibly slow although the restaurant was practically empty.

      1. The food is quite good, and has plenty of selection for veggie and non-veggie. Slatty's experience was not a one off, their service is unbelieveably slow. They're always quite nice, just incompetent. I would also advise against to-go orders, as they tend to screw up the order. And the screw-ups weren't small, they've left the meat off salads that specifically come with meat more than once. I wish I could recommend it more, because the owner is quite nice, but after awhile they just got to be more trouble than they were worth.

            In Downtown Culver City, next door to S&W Cafe, if you're familiar with that...two doors down from the Kirk Douglas Theatre.
