Favorite Restaurants San Fernando Valley (SFV)?

Right in the lot. We got there at about 5:30. Sat right down, line started after we got there.

But, There’s a guy watching the lot. Tells you when a space opens up, directs things. It’s actually been a lot better than it used to be. They also have some parking across the little street that they will direct you to if there’s an opening. Usually a wait, but not ungodly like it used to be.



Saw someone having chips/ salsa and Huevos Ranchero with Cervesa at Las Fuentes in Reseda for breakfast. Cheers!


Jinky’s in Studio City and Sherman Oaks. Red velvet pancakes, if they still have them.

And, Sweet Butter Kitchen for breakfast.
Croque Madame


An NYT article on Hotville Chicken mentioned an unrelated place Hawaiian Hot Chicken on Reseda and Dearborn. Has anyone been? How was it?

I’ve been around 6-7 times. It got so popular around here especially with CSUN students that the line most days could be up to an hour long. They use small Hawaaiin buns- they keep two buns attached and cut it lengthwise like a hot dog bun. It’s a little hard to hold but makes for a great counterpoint paired with the spicy chicken. It’s really good. Probably my 2nd favorite after Howlin.


Chiang Mai Thai Kitchen is my current favorite Thai in SFV.

Thai sausage khao soi, where have you been all my life.


Thanks @Ns1. Is the official name Chiang Mai Thai Kitchen? Just making sure which restaurant to bookmark. :slight_smile:

What else do you like on the menu? Thanks.

Yes that is correct. I’m partial to their khao soi, Thai sausage, and TBH their fried rice hits the fucking spot.

I do not care for their pork jerky.

This is funny… I’ll take my sai oua on the side please. Never seen that combo in a bowl before :slight_smile:

Yeah me neither. But it’s delicious…vastly superior to a drumstick IMO.

On your recommendation went there just now and got the Thai sausage khao soi. Delicious! However I was only the second table occupied on a Thursday night. I certainly hope the word spreads about how good this place is!


That looks yummy. What is that curly stuff (I limit my gluten)?

tastes like deep fried egg noodles.

Deep fried noodles. They have plenty of other options. Its close to my house so I will be exploring them.


Has anyone here managed to try Gino’s East?
I have tried a few evenings but left due to the hour + waits.

Oh fuck


Prime Pizza Burbank

clearly my diet is going well


How’s the consistency been?

getting better but still working out the kinks. There was like 3-4 slices of grandma when I ordered and then 10 minutes later they said they didn’t have any and it would be 15 more minutes. Where the 3-4 slices went I have no idea…but they gave me an extra slice for the troubles so I aint mad at them.

I stand by my original assessments - best slice pizza in east SFV, at least as good as many of the NYC shops I’ve been to, but not driveworthy if you’re not already in this neck of the woods.

Minimal lines at 12:30. Evidently they’ve been open 14 days and I’ve already stopped by 4 times.
