After reading all those good reviews about Simon's Cafe on Sepulveda Blvd., South of Ventura Blvd., I decided to try it today for lunch. You guys were right. The food was superb. I had a chicken tagine with dried fruits, and it was incredible. For dessert I had the homemade baklava, and that was great, too! And Simon, the owner, is the nicest guy. Thanks for your recommendations!

    I forgot to mention that my friend had a dish called cous-cous (sp?) royale, and said it was "out of this world." Give this restaurant a try. The guy needs the business, and the food is delicious. It's just across the street from Whole Foods Market.

      cous-cous royale is indeed mind blowing at Simon's. I'm not kidding. Also, the lamb tagine!

      I'm glad that you enjoyed the experience! We think that he's a wonderful man and my husband adores the tagines. It's important that he be successful so we can continue to enjoy dining there!

          Website here:
          Still have not been, even though Shimon has been here for around 4 or so years, and prior to that at Encino's Plaza de oro.
          One of these days! It is surely my kind of food.
