Sawtwlle blvd restaurants
Can someone enlighten me about some good restaurants on Sawtelle Blvd and some oftheir good dishes?
I agree wm about the pastrami.
But, I have to say, it's by far the best thing I've eaten or tasted there. Much better than the burger, which was sort of middle of the road for a gastropub burger.
I need to try the chicken, I guess, because I was starting to think that PC was (for me) a one dish restaurant. I do crave that pastrami sandwich though.
I would like to know the best way to eat it. The sunny side egg makes it tough to eat like a sandwich. Once I even flipped over the bread to get the egg inside, but then I had to deal with that mustard on my fingers. It's really a knife and fork sandwich.
We really like Blue Marlin. My two kids really dig it and we had the 16 year olds birthday celebration there this year.
It's an Japanese Italian restaurant. Very casual. Typically crowded, mostly younger Japanese clientele as far as I can tell.
Everyone in the family loves the various omrice dishes. I also like a spicy pork cutlet dish that's sort of a cross between katsudon and a parmagiana-type dish.
The pasta dishes are quite good as well, sort of Japanese takes on what you'd find in a typical Italian-American restaurant. This is not Spoon House, for what it's worth, at least I haven't come across that sort of watery red sauced spaghetti that Spoon House serves.
It's in the strip mall across the street from Nigjiya/Beard Papa.
Here is a link to the menu:

I'll support the Plan Check recommendations. It's hard to go wrong there. I'll also throw my hat in the ring and suggest Nong La which has Vietnamese food. Some might find their pho bland but I think it has a very clean, beef-y essence that I prefer in my pho. The specialty is actually the chicken pho but I haven't tried it yet.
