GJELINA

GJELINA is this amazing place on Abbot Kinney Blvd, in Venice. A must-visit place in many ‘things to do in LA’ and ‘things to do in Abbot Kinney’ lists – we decided to check out this place last weekend. Giving us company was a colleague of mine and his family (another food loving family..:)). The place does not have a sign board outside, but you won’t miss the long wait lines outside. We got to sit in the patio, on a nice comfy couch.

The food is excellent. Not to be missed are the ‘lamb burger with harissa aioli, arugula and frites’ and the ‘warm strawberry & rhubarb crisp with almond gelato’. The other things we tried were the ‘burrata with grilled peach, prosciutto, arugula and balsamic’, ‘mixed mushroom and rosemary pizza’ and the ‘margherita pizza’. We fell in love with the place so much that, we went back for lunch the very next day (another reason was to get away from the three digit heat in the valley).
The place is extremely noisy, they have good service and amazing food. If you are taking kids, see if you can get a table outside in the back – it’s less noisy and less crowded.
