We hardly ever get out to Whittier. But, we checked out this antique mall and decided we should have lunch in town. We found a decent spot and enjoyed some good food and a great glass of wine. I had a burger with salad. Salad was delicious and so was the burger. My boyfriend enjoyed a flat bread (pizza) and that was good, too!
Uptown Kabob is a family run restaurant with a cozy, intimate atmosphere and a great menu good for those who are looking for something delicious and healthy.
Both carnivores and vegetarian will be satisfied here, as there are dishes of the Middle Eastern staples of lamb, beef and chicken.
No need for reservations. Most of the time, there is enough tables open. On weekends, this is a perfect spot for a romantic date and for nightlife entertainment. The obligatory bellydancer may show up to do her thing!
This is the only Mediterrean/Middle Eastern restaurant that I know of in the city.
Favorite Dish: Come here and try kabobs (chicken , beef or lamb) and hummus.
El Pescador (The Fisherman in Spanish) is a local chain of Mexican restaurants, mostly in the "562" ( that is, 562 area code zone of greater Los Angeles including Whittier, Long beach, even the OC's La Habra)
Come here for the lunch buffet which I did often while on class break. Buffet prices are under $10 w drink.
Favorite Dish: Enchiladas any way!!
The atmosphere is wonderful, the food is very good to whom craves what Americans typcially like to eat- hamburgers, sandwiches, tacos and burritos. Rest assure , this is not a common greasy joint. Desserts here are very fancy for a small town establishment as this. The tiramisu is a nice treat as well as the freshly brewed coffees. One can sit inside the cafe or out in the patio area with an umbrella over top for their meal.
Favorite Dish: the mediterrean sandwich & the house tiramisu
Ambrose has a lovely setting. When I went inside, it looked clean. There were no customers, which seemed a bit odd consdering in it was about 1PM. At night, it does get busier there. If you don't like crowds, you'll love the quiet ambience. The decor is cute,done as if you were eating in Venezia. Most of the tables were at ground level but one has a downward view upstairs. This may be the spot for a romantic date.
The menu is typcial Italian-American- pizza, calzones, pasta, etc. The main reason to come her is for pizza. You can have a basic cheese , pepperoni or veggie slice if you are on the go. If you are very hungry or have a big group to feed you can get a fuller, round pizza as a small medium or large.
The clerk was friendly and personable when I went, calling me "sweetie". She scored major points with this!
Overall, it was a great experience at Ambrose. I'd go again there, maybe next time in the evening when there is more of a crowd.
Favorite Dish: Vegetable Pizza
This I tried on my first visit here. The crust was thin, which I like. The sauce and mozzarella was just right. There was a nice variety of vegetables (green peppers, mushroom,onion) but not too many to take away from the sauce and cheese.
Well some love it some hate it, but Whittier has a Starbucks. I find these places open when others are shut. You can rely on good coffee, food and a clean surround.
Just sometimes it's nice to be already familiar with a place, even if you never been here before.
Barrows pizza, whittier,CA. The best pizza I have ever had! I resently completed a tour in the U.S.Navy and my travels brought me to 21 diffrent countrys,I of course ate at as many places as possible. And of course had some great food,but when it comes to pizza, GO TO 'BARROWS' pizza.ITS ALL GOOD!!!
The stuff they put on the pizza is all that, huge chunks of sausage. Real pepperoni and I dont know for sure but I think the owner hand picks all the veggies because they are always fresh as can be! You can taste it for your self!!!
Favorite Dish: AT barrows pizza every thing is the best thing on the menu. I have no association with Barrows pizza other than a patron and fan, I just think people should know where to get great pizza.
