Ethnic - no "westside"

debrasarokin Oct 16, 2007 02:51 PM

A few families want to get together once a month for an ethnic restaurant experience. We went to Soot Bull Jeep for the first try and we had a blast. The guidelines would be: no "westside", must have beer and wine and of course good to great food. (The kids are 15 year old boys with some culinary limitations)

What should we try next???

      second this recommendation.
      for vegetarian ethiopian, i prefer rahel
      for omnivore ethiopian, meals by genet (on fairfax) or awash (which is on pico, not fairfax)

      Try Mexican next in old town Torrance called La Capilla. Serves alcohol and has great food. Like the commercial says, "Try it, you'll like it"...

        How about any of the ethiopian places along fairfax's ethiopian nexus, for 'hands-on' chowing upon injera and savory stews (veggie, chicken, beef, etc.). Libations might be limited to beer and, er, honey wine. We enjoyed Rosalind, but there are many choices in a close proximity to each other...

              All-you-can-eat dosas night at Woodland's indian (vegetarian) buffet. Gotta head up to the valley, though. Worth it!

                  Sushi Gen in Little Tokyo, but go early, around 5:00 to 5:30 p.m. They have california rolls and cooked food (teriyaki) for the kids.
