Soul-satisfying Lebanese faves fuel this bustling local hangout.
Sunnin Lebanese Cafe offers the most authentic Lebanese cuisine in Los Angeles, owned and operated by the famous chef Em-Toni where she was the chef at Al Amir.

Their menu offers a variety of Lebanese dishes such as kebbeth bil sayniyeh (two layers finely ground beef and burguk stuffed with minced beef, onions, and pine nuts), chicken kefta (finely ground chicken with chopped onions and parsley, seasoned with a blend of spices), bastilla (fillet of chicken seasoned with ginger and baked in filo dough) and spicy kefta (grilled kefta kebab baked in a tomato sauce with herbs).

This westside hole-in-the-wall should not be missed. Everything at Sunnin is wonderful, and the owner will personally (if not immodestly) tell you so. You'll have UCLA students feasting to your left and a westside... (more)
