Ten Best Restaurants in Hollywood
6. Istanbul Cafe

For more than two decades, Hasan Kochan has been turning out classic Turkish dishes at his beachside restaurant on the Hollywood Broadwalk. Inside, driving techno thumps as a singer belts out a song in what you might guess is Turkish. It's the perfect pace to tap your foot or thumb as you wait for one of Kochan's thin-crust Turkish pizzas topped with a spicy combination of ground lamb, onions, parsley, and herbs. Grab a falafel wrap and a seat on the Broadwalk and watch the Margaritaville construction or the always-entertaining daytime drinker stroll by.
5. Sara's Kosher Restaurant

Ask most people what they think they'd find on the menu at a kosher, vegan restaurant and you're likely to see a lot of furrowed and raised eyebrows. At Sara's, they'll get pizza, French toast, and Shakshuka (an Israeli breakfast of eggs poached in spicy tomato sauce). There's a Rubinovich for the weekdays, with corned beef stacked skyscraper high, grilled onion, a special sauce similar to Thousand Island dressing, and plenty of cheese. They even have kosher Chinese food for Sunday-night dinners. They cater, they deliver, and they'll never let you go hungry.
