Lunch on Sawtelle today?
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!
Blue Marlin is always good and reasonably priced; esp. if you like sea urchin (uni spaghetti or risotto).
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.
