Spire Works Westwood doner kebob

SpireWorks serves Döner Kebob American Style

After traveling to Berlin, Turkey, and over twenty years ago to Israel, I always crave döner or döner kebob. Now you can get a perfect flavorful doner spire of beef, chicken, or veggie köfte in LA. For vegan Angelenos, the köfte option will satiate their appetite with meatless meatballs made of cubed vegetables held together by chickpea flour and Urfa biber (dried Turkish Chili pepper). SpireWorks just opened in … Continue reading SpireWorks serves Döner Kebob American Style

Somehow moving back to DC, then coming to LA caused a slip … Continue reading Out of India: Sāmbār, Culver City’s new Restaurant
