The Continental

Over the last five years, I have really grown to love eating dinner in the Valley.  Parking is easy, there’s usually more table space, and quite often, the food is excellent.  One of my favorite places to go in Burbank is Mo’s, which recently re-opened as The Continental. Same original owner, but the restaurant has gotten a total facelift and menu

Fala Bar

Fala Bar = Falafel and Salad Bar! Located on Melrose, just east of Fairfax, the space is tiny, mostly gluten-free, 100% organic/vegan/GMO-free and full of choices! Just look at all the beverages – they even have fresh coconut they’ll cut for you. I was treated to a sampling of options… …homemade, baked falafel with hummus, tahini, matbucha, and baba ghanoush

Z Garden

There’s a couple locations of Z Garden – the one on Pico is in a strip mall, and quite cozy! Leslie was my date, so we had some vegan options – pita, zaatar oil, and an excellent meat-free Moussaka… …fried eggplant, onion, garlic, peppers, chickpeas, and tomato sauce. Also terrific – the Vegetarian Combo – Falafel, Grape Leaves, Hummus, Baba Ghannoush,
