Sangak Bakery & Cafe, which we spotted months ago in the heart of the Kosher Corridor, is set to open later this week. The Glatt Kosher restaurant will offer a full menu of kabobs, giving nearby Kabab Mahaleh (a neighborhood favorite known for its cheap and tasty eats) a run for its money. The cafe also will offer sandwiches, salad, soups (like the thick Iranian soup ash reshteh) and breakfast.

The restaurant takes its name from sangak, a sourdough flatbread that's the perfect accompaniment to a skewer of koobideh.

  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
