Pita Pita
927 East Colorado Blvd

I was on the prowl for some lunch so I decided to randomly park on Colorado and walk around to see if there was anything interesting around and I found Pita Pita. The front part of this joint is lined with awards, newspaper reviews...etc. The place was packed with people too. I've been looking for some kabob place on Colorado, since both the Zankous on Colorado don't do kabobs.

So naturally, I ordered the Chicken Kabob plate. Here, there's no table service. You get in line, order your meal, and get a number. This joint was definitely not a Raffi's Place or Carousel, but more nicer and neighborhood-y than Zankou on Sunset. They had pictures drawn by little kids on the wall.

The grilled veggies and the chicken kabob were great. The chicken was juicy and tasty. I wasn't too wild over their "veggie" mixed rice or pita chips. I like the pita chips at Spitz better.

But overall, a good lunch. Will definitely come back to try some of the other stuff here when I'm near the area.

Rincon Argentino
1375 E. Colorado

This is one of those joints you can only discover by parking your car and walking around and exploring.

Driving down Colorado, I have been noticing a bunch of small bakeries so I just parked randomly to check one out. Well the one I tried was closed, but close by I found Rincon Argentino, a small Argentinian Carneceria.

They had some empanadas out, so I had to try me some. A chicken and a beef. They were baked and pretty good.

If your having a party, these would be great. And you can support a local ethnic market.

Next time I have a BBQ, I'm going to come back and get some steak and some Chimichurri Sauce! And oh, can't forget a few bottle of some Argentinian wine.
