SF 'hounds need lunch help near North Hills
SF Bay Area 'hound's will be visiting relatives who live in North Hills. On Tuesday, we'd like to take them out to lunch in the area.
Yelp wasn't much help, but Chowhounds are gold. Is there anyone who knows the area, and can help us out with a good, sit-down lunch place in North Hills, or near by?
You are not too far from Brent's Deli in Northridge. One of the best Jewish delis in all of LA. Wonderful Black Pastrami Rubeun & Smoked fish plates. In fact almost every thing on their gigantic menu is really good.
Just remembered the name of another place where I've had a good lunch in the SFV: House of Shish Kabob in Chatsworth. The dolma and ground chicken kabob were my favorites, but then I am a sucker for dolma. large portions. It is a bit of a drive from North Hills, however (perhaps 15 - 20 minutes at mid day). Halal, no alcohol served.
I've been searching for the perfect sit down Mexican place in North Hills ever since my daughter moved there several years ago. Some good taco places, and Siete Mares is ok if you order carefully, but nothing really grabs me. Someone had also mentioned a really great paleta place in the area but I think that must be a myth (would love to be proved wrong...)
What kind of cuisine are you looking for?
No too far is an Argentine place called Mercado Buenos Aires at 7540 Sepulveda Blvd and Saticoy down the 405. It's a combo market (small) and sit down diner style in the other side of the building. The service isn't the greatest but the food is quite tasty, plentiful, and decently priced.
Another poster recommended Brent's Deli. I would also have to concur.
