Lunch after Golf near Simi Hills

nosh Sep 15, 2013 07:33 PM

My playing partner wants to treat me to a belated BD lunch after golf this Thursday. We play at Simi Hills, which is just north of the 118, exit at Stearns.

I know I could go a couple exits further west and hit The Hat or a couple of other options. But I would like some options off of Stearns or an exit or three back to the east. Casual, not too expensive, where we could cool off with good food.

    You could come back to the Valley and get off at Topanga and go to Les Sisters for some Southern/Cajun food.

      Hey Nosh, Where did you end up going? Was it to your liking? I am curious.

        Sorry. Partner couldn't do lunch after golf yesterday.

        He has suggested a south african place on Victory at Woodley after golf at encino next week. I think it is called Springbok. Very mixed reviews on Yelp.

      Maybe Ali Baba on Madera for kebabs/shwarma, or Old Susana at the other end of town for diner/brunch-y fare?

      Hey, if you like spicy Chinese, Szechuan Place on Kanan in Agoura Hills is probably <30 min.!

        Thanks. Is Szechuan Place that much better than Szechuwan Garden to merit almost an hour extra (round trip)?

          Missed this- yes. Szechuan Place is SGV food that just happens to be out in Agoura. Nothing like it for miles.

        I would hit up one of the Customs, either the Melt or the Pie. They're by the college off of Collins. Great sandwiches & great beer @ the Melt. The Pie has Neapolitan-style pizza & salads.

          Thank you.

          I will note all of these, but I love spicy Chinese, so I'm going to investigate the lunch specials at Szechuan Garden.

                  No wucking forries (as I used to hear in Oz). The link in sunny gordy's post was bad for some reason, so this killed those two proverbial birds with one stoner...

            The choices for SV itself are limited. I suggest Don Cucos or Szechuan Garden. Both are good and you can sit and talk without a lot of noise.
