Set back from the beach in a spacious Hermosa Beach shopping center, Barsha is the kind of unpretentious, under-the-radar restaurant that South Bay residents probably don’t want anyone outside of their zip code to know about. But sorry to them, it’s too charming (and reasonably priced) not to share: The food at this breezy, indoor-outdoor spot leans North African, with a good mix of small plates like falafel sliders and roasted cauliflower alongside larger, shareable entrees like juicy lamb meatballs or a rich seafood stew, which are all under $30. And since the owners also run a wine shop nearby, you’ll find a fantastically priced list that offers various-sized pours to suit however many people you’re drinking with.
