with LA Weekly on this one.As a journalist, I do my best to keep my opinions to myself, but I've got to agree
As the ampm slogan goes, that shopping center on the northwest corner of Vineland Avenue and Burbank Boulevard has "too much good stuff."
The plaza was recently singled out by the publication for its wide selection of tasty and savory offerings from a broad choice of cultures.
Where to begin? There's Hayat's Kitchen, a Mediterranean favorite for newbies and foodies alike.
"The place is impeccable from start to finish, with creamy hummus and those addicting garlic fries to start you off with a bang and hearty bites of lamb shank to send you quietly into the night," wrote LA Weekly columnist Farley Elliott. "The filet mignon shawarma is not only a delight, it's reasonably priced at $12."
One of the newest tenants, which opened last year, is 101 Korean BBQ & Sushi, highlighted for its generous lunch offerings.
"As a lunch option, it's hard to beat places like this, where sub-$10 specials will get you miso soup, a small side salad, a pile of rice, steamed veggies and your choice of protein.
As a bowl guy, I can confidently vouch for this spot's bibimbap.
There's also a donut shop and a few Armenian bakeries serving up solid sweets.
The shopping center is located at 11009 Burbank Blvd.
