Lunch on Sawtelle today?

Emily Dell May 30, 2008 09:15 AM

I'm heading to Sawtelle for a fun lunch today, and I'm NEVER on this side of town so really looking forward to it -- any recommendations? Should I hit Sawtelle Kitchen? I'm pretty adventurous but don't want to strike out, any tips on places and recommended dishes would be welcomed! Thanks!

      Too late, I suppose, but I second Kiriko. Orris is good, too. Not sure if they're open for lunch.

      Whatever you do - don't go to Asahi Ramen. I don't know what I was thinking last week. Nostalgia? The pickled cucumbers used to be great - they weren't. The ramen used to be decent - it wasn't. Maybe I've changed, maybe they have...but don't bother.

      Sawtelle Kitchen is solid.

        Blue Marlin is always good and reasonably priced; esp. if you like sea urchin (uni spaghetti or risotto).
