    A sophisticated taste of Afghanistan
    On your right as you walk into Azeen’s Afghani Restaurant in Pasadena, a tapestry weaves a scene of Bushkazi, Afghanistan’s national sport, a sort of polo played with a decapitated goat carcass. On the wall on your left, a photograph shows...

    Dining review: An artful taste of Vietnam in Eagle Rock
    A painting transforming the limestone karst towers that jut out of Vietnam's Halong Bay into a red and yellow fever dream hangs on the wall of an Eagle Rock restaurant named for the bay. A fountain in the center of the dining room tries to evoke the sound...

    Dining review: Serving up Thai spices courtside
    The inside of 40 Love Café feels like a food court, the outside just the tiniest bit like Wimbledon courtside. Within the Burbank Tennis Center, the café's interior is all large white floor tiles and pinkish walls, with the tables and white tubular...

    Dining review: Fatty's keeps it really vegan

    'World War Z': A look back at the early years of zombie flicks
