Some of my favorite restaurants on and near "Little Osaka."
Affordably priced Japanese comfort food in the form of beef, chicken, pork or veggie curry dishes over rice or spaghetti. The strip mall's valet service eases the parking problem of congested Sawtelle Boulevard.
My husband's go-to place when he's feeling crummy because of clean, healthy food that's not weighed down by sauces and batters.
Lots of fun cooked dishes and specialty mixes like ceviches, but, if you can afford it, pony up for the omakase menu that ends with a huge blue crab handroll.
This ain't you traditional Sno Cone. Instead, get smooth, creamy whipped ice (and cream) topped with fruit, sprinkles, condensed milk and sauces.
The west side's popular, trendy dim sum spot has hot soup dumplings, cut noodle soups -- and, of course, red bean buns for dessert.
While this small Japanese restaurant is famous for their ramen, be mindful that they only serve the comforting soup during lunch -- which is fine, as the large menu of tofu, noodles, sushi and cooked meats offers plenty of options for dinner guests.
Vietnamese pho and banh mi sandwiches in a land of ramens and Japanese curry.
