Sawtelle

2117
2117 Sawtelle Blvd, (310) 477-8385
Sawtelle French Japanese. Expensive but wonderful - try the sweetbreads.

Furaibo
2068 Sawtelle Blvd., (310)444-1432
Izaka-ya with unforgettable teba-sake wings and other treats. Pork belly is unstoppable.

Curry House
2130 Sawtelle Bl #200, 310-479-8477
Japanese curry chain with many crazy specials like curry and omelettes. Good silly fun.

Blue Marlin
2121 Sawtelle Blvd , 310-445-2522
Sawtelle Japanese Italian and curry. Inventive specials.

Hurry Curry of Tokyo
2131 Sawtelle Blvd., (310)473-1640
Japanese "curry" cannot be truly written without inverted commas, but it's still a quintessential comfort food. I usually get croquettes.

Manpuku
2125 Sawtelle Blvd., 310-473-0580
Yakiniku thats really satisfying. Raw beef was my favourite dish.

Sawtelle Kitchen
2024 Sawtelle Blvd, (310) 445-9288
Nice neighbourhood fusion joint.

Ramen-ya
11555 West Olympic Boulevard, 310.575.9337
Fine ramen on Olympic. Shoyu (soy) and shio (broth) both good.

Raku
11678 Olympic Boulevard, 310-478-3090
Wonderful japanese small dishes from simple fare like delicious lotus root to baroque like shrimp-stuffed squash blossums. Tremendous.

Chabuya
2002 Sawtelle Blvd. (310) 473-1013
Japanese chain with super high-quality ramen, I like it almost as much as Shinsengumi. Very tender chashu/sliced pork and excellent broth. Open late, too. Amusing pork sandwich is made with sweet dough similar to Cantonese cha siu bao.

Hey Simon, you need to check out the Empanadas place on Sawtelle at Venice. I particularly like the one that is a bit lemony. It is best to eat it hot but you can also get take out if you have to go to the lab and work!

GR/eats is surprisingly good. You should really try it out. Multi- ethnic food ranging from Paella to vietnamese spring rolls to thai curry to chilean sea bass.
