Best of L.A. -- Food and Drink

Food & Drink



Nagilla, an incredibly pleasant not-really-fast food and pizza joint is a great spot for a night of healthy Kosher veggie eats even if your friends are hankering for a chili dog. It's really two cafés in one. The two different culinary worlds are separated by a picturesque, Jerusalem-inspired, covered courtyard. The veggie, pizza and dairy side offers a superb selection of Middle Eastern dishes (tasty falafels, hummus, Israeli salad and vegi-shawarma with soy "meat" cut into bite-sized pieces then grilled with onion, mushrooms and spices), Mexican fare (nachos, burritos, tostadas), and Italian selections such as savory specialty pizzas, a hearty spinach-and-cheese calzone, and zesty eggplant Parmesan. The stuffed-crust pizza, filled with mushrooms, garlic and basil, is truly the best in L.A. Every bite is a mouth-watering taste explosion. Across the courtyard, for those pesky meat lovers, the cook whips up delish chicken kebabs, chili dogs and shawarma. 9411 W. Pico Blvd., L.A. (310) 788-0111.
