When entering the cozy little nook of LA's only Bulgarian restaurant, patrons will find a small, simple space with white walls and a few travel mementos. The food is a mix of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Eastern European cuisine. Yogurt, which is said to have originated in Bulgaria, is at the center of most of the dishes. Specialties include vita banitca, a bread made of filo dough filled with cheese, eggs, and spices, fried zucchini with yogurt-garlic dip, stuffed bell peppers, pork tenderloin rolls and lamb kebab. Don't leave without getting a piece of their house-made garash cake, a delight made of meringue and chocolate!
As an Eastern European (Hungarian), I am drawn to restaurants featuring the cuisine of my former neighbors. Westwood's Danube Bulgarian Restaurant is cozy, friendly, and features good home cooking of a type with which most Americans are not familiar. I love their kebapche sausages, their excellent hummus and rice pilaf, their stuffed cabbages and peppers, salmon, plus all the other dishes I have tried. I am still exploring the menu, especially their many omelet and salad choices. The Danube is a magnet for all the local Bulgarian-Americans, many of whom sit in a little back room that has only a few tables in it. Almost always, there is a Bulgarian music video playing, which adds to the atmosphere. If you can deal with the difficult parking situation, the Danube is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner. Don't be afraid: The food is good, not overly spicy, and plentiful.
