El Morfi

After my morning melon + errands, I drove over to Glendale for lunch at El Morfi.

This place reminds me of my regular haunts back in Astoria!

All the food was great – including their complimentary bread with Chimichurri Sauce.

    We really need to go explore a new restaurant! :) I love GREEK or Spanish or Japanese! I have never even eaten anywhere in Glendale before – Ha!

      It’s a really down-to-earth area – I love it!

    Awesome! I’m a reader from Argentina and was so happy to see you trying this type of cuisine. The place looks like a copycat of typical eateries here, down to the waiter’s outfits.
    Morfi is slang for food.

    It totally has that Astoria vibe – agreed.
    I’m working my way – very slowly – through the restaurants there. I’ve been more tempted by the fish markets, Greek groceries and vegetable markets so far!
