If fast-casual Persian food becomes a new trend in LA, we can thank Kuku Cafe for helping get it started. The menu at order-at-the-window cafe in Inglewood has various rice and salad bowls on it, but what fun is that? Go for the specialties instead. That includes tanchin, a crispy saffron rice cake filled with chicken, braised lamb shank, and ghormeh sabzi, a sour beef stew made with dried black limes. This place is a lunch hour no-brainer, but keep it in mind for the next time you’re coming in for a concert or football game:—parking is easy, there’s a serene astroturf patio, and the adorable, beret-wearing owner will come out from the kitchen and keep you company until showtime/kickoff.
