Mantee is one of our favorite Armenian restaurants in Los Angeles. The family-run spot on Ventura has a tiny interior that feels like you’re eating inside your aunt’s one-bedroom apartment, and a big back patio for those days and nights when you just need to be outside. The mantee (meat-filled raviolis topped with garlic yogurt sauce) is definitely good, but you’re simply not allowed to leave without some dolma (stuffed eggplant) and their plate of sizzling hot feta. Actually, you’re going to need multiple plates of that sizzling hot feta.
