Lunch near whittier


#1

have to run down to whittier to pick up something, anything chow-worthy around there?

the CH search function doesn’t allow sort by date and i’m pulling up stuff 10 years old i don’t want to have to sort through.


#2

I like Arturo’s puffy tacos
15693 Leffingwell Rd, Whittier, CA 90604

also tacos Baja ensenada


#3

that’s on whittier but actually in east la. my definition of near is a little different than yours, i guess.


#4

fair enough, I think you mean correctly that your definitition of whitter is accurate and mine wasn’t there!..I got a friend that lives right around corner from Arturo’s—that’s whitter for sure! just trying to help you out brotha


#5

arturo’s sounds like it might work. thanks!

This is a list from JGold’s article Feb 2014. Only been to Bizarra Capital. Not bad. Pretty good. You’ll need to check to see who’s open for lunch.

  • Bizarra Capital
  • The Bottle Room
  • Portsmouth
  • Phlight
  • Rusty Monk
  • Seta
  • and the aforementioned Arturo’s Puffy Tacos

Soy Maya for papusas.

Corner of Painter and Lambert.


#8

love both recs.


#9

what about Bizzaro Capital that everyone seems to rave about ???


#10

i like pupusas. do they also offer slaw? i had an el salvadorean coworker who brought pupusas to work and the slaw really does complete them IMO.


#11

Yes, as well as salsa.


#12

cool. it’s sol maya BTW. thanks.


#13

bizarra capital, Bailey Street etc.

there’s a tacos baja in whittier, not East LA.


#14

yes, but the address provided on whittier blvd is east la.


#15

thought so – thanks…


#16

+1 on The Bottle Room.


#17

Gotta have the slaw. Cuts the richness.


#18

bottle room doesn’t open until 3ish…


#19

16032 Whittier Blvd, Whittier. It’s really far deep into Whittier though. I’d just rather leave Whittier ASAP.


#20

it’s a consideration; it seems to take 1/2 hour to get to anywhere in whittier from the SGV, even if you start in whittier.
