REVIEW: ATTARI

IMG_5842

An Iranian sandwich shop that doubles as an unofficial hangout for the large population from Tehran, this small counter order boasts a gurgling fountain courtyard, Iranian tunes and some of the best sandwiches in all of Los Angeles.

Don’t believe it?  There is almost always a line and tables can be scarce on weekends.  You’ll also battle Westwood parking but for a little taste of heaven these are the things The Monster puts up with.

A chicken kotlet sandwich makes the grade today.  Ground, fried chicken and potato with mustard, pickles, tomato, and mint on a French baguette.  For dessert, a little bit of baklava.

You might also sup on some delicious kabobs or the more adventurous may take a stab at their famous beef tongue sandwich or osh soup.

Nanoseconds after it arrives the sandwich is but a happy memory in The Monster’s stomach.  This is no meager thing either, you’re getting your money’s worth at Attari.

Also insanely delicious is the baklava, perhaps the best this humble eater has ever had.  It plies a place between sweet and succulent, with each bite better than the last.

With friendly service and a chance to practice your Farsi this hidden gem may become a regular on your sandwich rotation.  There is a reason this is perpetually on LA Weekly’s Essential 99.

Why go?  You need a new hookah.
