I'm going out of the country for a while and would like to have really great LA food before leaving.
Can you suggest anything along these lines in either of these two locations?
(a) Van Nuys Airport (Exit Roscoe near 405)
(b) REI in Northridge (near Devonshire and Reseda, close to 118).
-- breakfast (eg. not super greasy diner, but fresh fruit stuffed pancakes or excellent vegetarian)
-- great bakery (not old school like Bea's, but european style like Europane with croissants, tarte tatin, espresso)
-- a great Korean place with great side dishes, soon dubu, hwe dup bap, or dolsot bibimbap, as good as Ktown korean, if its mediocre then i prefer a good sandwich.
-- really good sandwiches
-- or creole, hawaiian, chinese dimsum
thx in advance!!
