Attari Sandwich Shop in Westwood

kevin | Jun 21, 200511:23 PM

This sandwich shoppe tucked into the corner of another restuarant and what may be a small office building and catty corner from the border's bookstore is quite unique. This joint is a Persian sandwich shop. And that's all they serve save for a couple sweets, a soup or two (most likely an ash- think of it as a persian gumbo and barley soup). But the sandwiches are what I've tried here. And damnit but they're pretty darn swell. The kotlet (a ground meat and potato mixture, sort of like a potato pancake, is deep fried after being doused with bread crumbs) is served in a French baguette with some parsley, some lettuce, tomatoes, light condiments, and of course some of those persian pickles. good stuff, feels a little bit more like a po boy than a sub sandwich. of course it is dainty, you won't get at all messy eating one of these suckers. also, tried the mortadella which is a cold cut sandwich with the same fixin's, this one's a little more like a vietnamese bahn mi sandwich especially with a light dousing of some of a bottle of sirachi hot sauce that adorns the coutnertop. Worth it for a try if you're in the hood, and if you live here it could possibly be in the makings for your new neighborhood sandwich parlor. good stuff. cash only i think, right off westwood blvd. across from the 7-11.
