The Foo Fighters Taco is available for takeout starting Dec. 1 at the 64-year-old San Fernando Valley restaurant. It will be sold through the end of January.

5 best places serving mole in the San Fernando Valley for takeout and delivery

Back when I was a mere pup, I decided to take a bit of early retirement, and head for Mexico and Central America for a few months. Inspired by a deeply alternative volume called “The People’s Guide to Mexico,” I packed a battered canvas satchel with a change of jeans, some t-shirts and lots of Imodium, and traveled by train, bus and thumb from Tijuana to Guatemala City to Belize and back. Even today, many years later, I remember getting a ride with a fellow transporting some, ahem, herbal produc...

Perfect gift for the pandemic holidays? California’s fanciest chocolates

Outdoor dining at The Village at Westfield Topanga – 4 delicious options

Actually, not a lot of changes had to be made for the many culinary options of the casually upscale Westfield Woodland to transition from dining in the Before Times to dining now, simply because so many of the restaurants — almost all, in fact — offered outdoor tables before the plague descended upon us. And though indoor eating isn’t possible for the foreseeable future, as long as the weather continues to be summery, sitting on the mall, watching local trendies and high-steppers march about on ...

Small Bites: Giving thanks that Thanksgiving is not what it used to be

Thanksgivings with my family growing up were never a lot of fun. For reasons that were always a bit of a mystery to me, my mother lived in a state of grudge with her relatives and also with my father’s side of the family. (The closest I ever came to an explanation was when she told me she didn’t speak to anyone in the family because they hadn’t shown her “respect.” Which made her sound like the incarnation of Don Corleone.) And so, come Thanksgiving, we stayed home — which was a misery all its o...

26 Thanksgiving meal options from Southern California casinos

Not everyone has the time or desire to make a full Thanksgiving meal with all the fixings and if you fall into that camp, Southern California’s casinos are still an option. But with the pandemic, things will be different this year. Gone are the buffet smorgasbords offering all-you-can eat delights (a casualty of the novel coronavirus) and generally there are fewer casino restaurants offering specials this year. However, there are still quite a few ready to seat and serve customers. Want to stick...

Black Bear Diner in Tarzana is a fun and delicious dining experience

At first, the outdoor dining phenomenon began in mini-malls, where casual takeout restaurants began serving food — often in Styrofoam — to a handful of diners seated at a smattering of tables with a view of the parking lot. That grew into larger malls, where more upscale restaurants served meals on already existing outdoor patios. And then, to entire city streets, blocked off to traffic or at least to parking, in outdoor dining cabanas — the construction of which kept lots of carpenters well emp...

Small Bites: Food writers enjoy eating tasty things…right out of the can

Despite the rumors, food writers do not live on caviar and champagne, with the occasional truffle thrown in for variety. Or at least, this food writer doesn’t. I like frozen foods just fine. I’m happy as anyone to rip open a bag of something sweet and salty from Trader Joe’s — the real Happiest Place on Earth. And I always have a wide assortment of canned foods in my pantry. I’d be happy to eat most of the food right out of the can — that’s what guys do. But my wife promises to lock me in the ro...

Chef Phillip Frankland Lee serves unexpected delights at Leviathan in Encino

The cooking of Phillip Frankland Lee — and the chef himself by extension — is a fascinating, amazing culinary conundrum. He is, at the very least, unexpected. Turn it up a notch and we hit something between experimental and eccentric. He’s a Valley lad who’s occasionally ventured to Beverly Hills and Santa Barbara. But has always returned to his home turf — and to Encino, in particular, where four of his restaurants are found clustered in an upscale Ventura Boulevard mall: Scratch Bar & Kitchen,...
