The mystery of life isn’t a problem to solve but a reality to experience.Frank Herbert, Dune,
It’s Friday. My assistant at work asked if I was leaving to work a second job?
I politely answered “Yes!”
Let’s just say blogging and critiquing food places that appear in my consciousness is a “job” and yes, sometimes I do get compensated for it.
On my way for a walk to the silver lake reservoir, I stopped in Atwater Village to grab a quick bite to eat.
There’s never any quick,
it’s just eat.
As I walked through several thrift shops, and used bookstores, I stumbled across a place called “Dune.”
Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is one step beyond logic.Frank Herbert, Dune
I really don’t think this place has anything to do with the book or the movie “Dune,” for some reason I just started using quotes from Frank Herbert’s book, and now I want to read it!
Dune, the restaurant in in Atwater Village, is a fusion of cultures from the Levant and eastern Mediterranean.
You gotta order the lemonade before summer ends. This lemonade had a bit of lavender in it with some fresh mint sprigs.
So many yummy things to order. I love lamb so that’s what I got. Delicious and savory. The pickled red onions meld all the flavors on the sandwich together.
The sign in the window read “Hot Turkish tea goes well with baklava $2.50.” I thought it meant both the tea and baklava were “$2.50.” Perhaps in another multiverse that’s true.
In this one, it was a total of $7.55.
Love this place. I’d totally come back to try the falafel which allegedly is the best in Los Angeles. Perhaps, there will be a sequel to this blog post, Dune part II dinner, date and the best falafel in Los Angeles… TBC.
