This was a wonderful restaurant serving cuban style cuisine. You can eat outside on the patio (smoking allowed) or eat inside. Outside, there was live entertainment. It's located off a main road so the traffic noise could be a little annoying. But with the music, it drowns it out. Very extensive menu, I'm sure there is something on it you'll like.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the Cena Cubana - Marinated Pork Chunks, Red Peppers, Onions, Tostones on a Skewer Served with Moro and Yucca $21. This was a gargantuan plate of food! I was pretty hungry but I probably ate 1/3 of the plate. Took the rest home. My boyfriend and I both divided it in half for lunch the next day and it was more than enough to satisfy us. Also, had the chicken empanadas. They were okay but not spectacular.
It's a small place - a bit crowded, the atmosphere is unremarkable; but it is without doubt the best Indian food that we have ever eaten. And that is in comparison to other Indian restaurants that cost two or even three times as much.
The only dish that was less than superb was the mulligatawny soup. It was a little flat. The katchumber salad was spicy and flavorful. The two entrees, chicken korma and lamb saag were good enough to make us want to lick the plates. Their mango lassi is the best I've ever had.
We made pigs of ourselves, and there was still enough food in the take-out box for another meal for each of us. All of this, including drinks, tax, and tip was about $25 each.
Porto is a staple of downtown Glendale! If you want to try the best of local cusinine , stop by here! Get something to satisfy your sweet tooth or fuffill you appetite with something more substantial! Cakes, pies, Cuban sandwiches, croissants, quiches, muffins and more!
Favorite Dish: Spinach and feta croissant!!!
Once you step into the restaurant you will feel that you really are in Brazil. Bright vivid colors and all sorts of decorations will surely give your eyes a work out.
On the weekends make sure to make reservations. As it is usually packed. Live bands all you can eat Brazilian style meat from lamb, top serloin, bottome serloin, spicy chicken thighs, chicken drumsticks, steak, and ribs just to name a few. Served at your table.
This place is definitely worth visiting, make sure however you come with an empty stomach and a lot of hungry friends/ relatives.
Favorite Dish: the lamb duuh...i hate salad...
I'd say that the overall quality of the food here was decent. There's nothing here that really makes this buffet stand out from any other buffet restaurant that I've been too. It's a seafood buffet so it naturally has crab legs, sushi, clams, scallops, fish, etc... naturally there's no lobster. It also has the other standard buffet items like fries n stuff.
Favorite Dish: The crab legs were pretty good. The sushi was actually good, usually the sushi that is made in buffets are really terrible, but I have to say it wasn't bad here.
Recently this small friendly restaurant opened in a mall on Verdugo Blvd. It is simple and has only maybe 7 tables. When it is full service is slow but the food is worth the wait.
I have been to many Indian restaurants in the L.A. area but this is the best so far.
Favorite Dish: I am still working my way through the menu. So far there hasn't been anything I wouldn't order again.
The Curry is tasty and they actually listen when you say mild, medium or hot. They make "very hot" for me. The owner was worried I couldn't eat it and was relieved when he saw me empty my plate.
There is also a list of different Naan which you can select. The garlic is just right.
The Ambience of Milano's Italian Restaurant is fairly nice.. There is a bar to sit and have drinks as one enters the restaurant.. On the opposite side from the bar is the restaurant with an open kitchen.. One can easily hold business meetings at this restaurant and I would guess, due to its very close proximity to all the Glendale businesses on Brand Blvd, this restaurant gets a fair share of its business at lunch time..
To our opinion, the food was average and the ambience was average or a little above average.. We would certainly consider eating at this restaurant at no special occasions..
Please refer to their website for their hours of operation and etc..
Favorite Dish: BRUSCHETTA AI DUE SAPORI as antipasti or appetizer tasted excellent.. Bread covered by both tomatoes and vegetables..
Our main dishes, the FETTUCCINE CON POLLO AI CARCIOFI was average considering I am not a fan of artichokes too much but you may enjoy this dish, who knows!! MILANO'S CAESAR WITH GRILLED CHICKEN also tasted average and nothing too special..
Conrad's restaurant has been at the location for many many years.. I've lived in Glendale since 1989 and I can remember Conrad's way back.. The only difference today is that it's open 24 hours.. AND YOU CAN HAVE BREAKFAST 24 HOURS A DAY WHICH IS GREAT. The menue consists of burgers, sandwiches, salads, the few pastas and chicken and seafoods and a handful of deserts to go along with coffee.. My favorite is the corn chowder they serve only on Saturday nights.... It's pretty delicious.. Not a lot of places are open in Glendale all night so if you're in town and hungry, give it a try..
Favorite Dish: I like the corn chowder served only on Saturday nights.. The greek salad is pretty good with large pieces of feta cheese and lots of black olives.. Try their bread pudding called the "diplomat pudding".. it's bread puding with raisings.. it's pretty good!! I usually go for a sandwich for the main meal along with half a greek salad and diet coke!!! that does it for me at Conrads.. nothing fansy but does the job at 3 in the morning...hehehe
El Morfi eatery is one of those restaurants when you pass by it, you don't know how great the cuisine inside and the people inside are.. It looks like a shop from outside. But inside is a whole other story.. Great staff and most importantly, TASTY FOOD!!!
The price is very average and even a bit less than average for the taste and the place....
It is a family owned business and they've been around since 1991. They serve Argentinean cuisine along with some other Latin American food.. Please check out their website for more pictures of dishes and a history of their restaurant..
We recommend this eatery to our friends on VT because our experience today for lunch for excellent.
Favorite Dish: I loved the "LINGUINI AL HONGO" with mushrooms and clams.. For lunch, you can get this dish for a special of $6.99. Christine had the chicken sandwich with french fries for about the same price and the sandwich to was excellent... Gotta give this place a try... They also have a wide variety of white and red whines so for all the wine lovers, what's better than Argentinean Seafood and some wine?? LOL YummY
The restaurant is small and sleepy, but very clean, with a mild attempt at looking like the Medditerian.
Food and drinks come from Lebenon, Greece, Turkey, and Egypt. Meats, Fishes, Wines.
The staff is rediculously friendly. I've went twice in one year and they recognized me.
Favorite Dish: The free appetizer is flat bread with olive oil and spices to dip in. I could it just that for my meal.
If you are ever in Glendale and are walking about in the downtown area, make a stop at Portos Bakery. Its a great family owned bakery that has the most delicious pastries, and for a really great price as well. For a couple of dollars, you can easily bring home two big boxes of goodies! Check out their site for more details!
Favorite Dish: Everything!
This is a really great restaurant. The chicken is excellent! Its also quite cheap. You can either order white or dark meat for your chicken and it comes with some pita bread, humus and garlic paste! Naturally you can order falafels as well. Don't go to KFC, this place is way better.
Favorite Dish: the 1/2 chicken meal.
This place says its an Irish restaurant. Its not really. It has a few items on the menu that are Irish in nature, but its not a genuine Irish restaurant. Still, it has great fish and chips. Plus its located in downtown Glendale and is near the Mann movie theaters, the Glendale Galleria and other fun plalces.
Favorite Dish: The fish and chips.
We stopped here to get breakfast and were not disappointed. The portions were large and the food was good. You got your monies worth here. Service was good and the decor was enjoyable.
