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...

Bleecker Street

Written By Zach Felder A charming staff greets customers at Bleeker Street. Seating is provided at the ultra modern bar or at a table, both are pleasant. An event room is part of the layout for big gatherings. Performing an original act, a singer provides a romantic vibe to the restaurant, but families are also welcome. Plate glass adds to...

Food review: China Buffet

On Sherman Way Ave., China Buffet is the most financially economical buffet where you get the most out of your $5 bill.  Caution if you've never been there before as it is troublesome to find, as they only have a small 4 x 5 a sign posted near their front entrance. A friendly young voice greets you as you walk...

A little slice of Italy in your backyard

Portia Medina/ The Bull   Nestled between an optometrist and a locksmith in a large strip mall on the south east corner of Devonshire Street and Mason Avenue is where you will find San Carlo Italian Deli. The small suburban storefront houses two rows of authentic Italian groceries just across from the deli counter where you place your order.   The deli case...

Food review: Firehouse

Photo by: Erick Ceron Driving east from Pierce College, in the corner of Victory and Reseda Boulevard you can find a place that doesn’t look to fancy nor pretends to be. You enter from the back of the building, and instantly get the sense of a wooden cabin feel in the middle of nowhere. The red brick walls, wood floors,...

While walking up to the door you will find on the outside patio a couple of plastic chairs and tables where you can eat. Behind the windows are another set of chairs and tables and beyond that are...
