That’s So Organic


Revolutionary food for a fast moving city.


Authentic Thai cuisine at Buri Tara

Nestled away in one of the many Woodland Hills mini-malls is a gem for the foodie and casual diners alike. Buri Tara, a quaint Thai restaurant located on Ventura Boulevard, provides a cozy eating environment with Asian style decor and tiny bouquets of flowers are at every table. Buri Tara has a wide variety of Asian cuisine, from teriyaki chicken to...

Crazy good sushi

A black wooden door sandwiched between the tan stucco facade of a local restaurant is reminiscent of a modern speakeasy. Located on Ventura Boulevard in Tarzana, Crazy Tokyo Sushi has been in business for more than 20 years. While the alley parking behind the restaurant can be tricky, there is often enough metered spaces out front. Parking in those...

Couture eats at Slaw Dogs

Nestled away in Woodland Hills on the long stretch of Ventura Boulevard is Slaw Dogs. It is one of three restaurants by the same name; the others being in Pasadena and Durante. Despite its small size, humble exterior painted pale gold and minimal patio décor, the mini restaurant is far from what it seems. Customers are greeted on their arrival...

Food review: Leo & Lily’s Cafe

The south end of the valley, from east to west, is home to mess and mayhem. Lined with neon signs and the most random collection of businesses available, there is hardly any relief. Off busy Ventura Blvd, however, Leo & Lily’s provides a sense of distance from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the Valley. So much...

No knead to look farther than Pastries by Edie

Once entering the vine floral gates to the patio surrounded by scenic murals, the noise of busy Sherman Way disappears to this little slice of Europe called Pastries by Edie. The full-service bakery contains several golden glass cases with hundreds of different types of patterned pastry desserts. Don’t be alarmed when choosing which creation to consumer first. The mouthwatering fruit tart...

Bowl & Burger

Bowl & Burger is one of the last places you’d expect to find good food. Located just off Sherman way and Canoga, it shares a small strip mall with a weed dispensary, a laundromat and a liquor store. Although inconspicuous and hidden away, make no mistake this hole in the wall restaurant is a gem. The average customer here...

Shalimar Cuisine of India

Written by Kashish Nizami Located in the corner of a mini mall on the quiet western end of Ventura Boulevard, Shalimar may look like a modest restaurant from the outside, but with even the slightest closer look it’s clear that the eatery is modeled to make its patrons feel like royalty. Stepping foot on the green carpet pathway to the...

Pretty girls, tall drinks and clean laundry!


 



Dublin's Irish Bar and Grill located next to CSUN is a great student hang out.  Its location is key for students being conveniently located next to campus for a short walk, a liquor store where you can buy cigarettes and a laundromat so you can get a drink while doing laundry. 



The staff is friendly and good-looking and if you engage them in conversation they are likely to offer you a free creatively made shot.  The female bartenders and cocktail waitresses are very friendly, wear short shorts and show a good amount of cleavage.  They are however annoying uninformed about their menu and prices and even have a hard time even adding up your bill.
