Two-Tip Tuesday

Here’s Tip #1 (for local readers):

If you’re throwing a big party and would rather not cook, order from Sunnin Lebanese Café in Westwood. You can’t go wrong. The best creamy hummus ever (better than mine, yes); perfect falafel; succulent grilled meats. Plus friendly service, generous portions and fair prices!

Delicious Lebanese food from Sunnin Café.

(Don't worry. Chopping an onion while wearing mascara will never make you look this bad.)

Those are our tips for today. Join us next week (or the week after that) for more!


About cdhla

I'm a former editor at several lifestyle magazines who's been freelancing since moving from NYC to LA. I call my blog The Chipped Platter to remind us that chips are better than perfection. The platter in question, a round one made by Gien, has traveled the world with me, visited with friends and family, celebrated milestones, and offered sustenance. My cherished Chipped Platter is part of the family. (I love my chipped plates, too!) On this blog, I'll be sharing my adventures of cooking for my family and friends, venturing out into restaurants and learning tips from people I meet. Come along!
