If you’re headed to this classic daytime-only shop on Westwood Blvd., chances are the beef tongue sandwich is on your agenda. And rightfully so, this iconic sandwich is a meaty, tangy masterpiece and one of the most well-known dishes in the neighborhood. That said, it shouldn’t be the only thing you order. We absolutely love their kuku sabzi, an aromatic, herb-based frittata, that comes either as a sandwich or its own entree. Get both and fight about which one is better with your friends. The excellent beef koobideh is juicy without being over-saturated and comes with thin, chewy sangak bread that soaks up the marinade and becomes an ideal after-meal… meal. Their patio has also reopened for outdoor dining, and once again, feels like the social heart of the neighborhood every afternoon.
