Fullerton, because of it’s particular location, has a Mediterranean climate. The newly opened Les Amies would then be the perfect accompaniment to our perfect weather. I tried the patio seating on a perfect sunlit Tuesday. The shawerma (marinated steak sandwich, $3.25) is a well made version of an ancient food. It’s light, yet satisfying. The herbs and vegetables are delicately balanced with the meat to give if a flavorful and maybe slightly tangy flavor. It’s great patio food. Les Amies menu is simple. At first I thought it was short, but now I understand. They are focusing on a limited set of dishes that they can deliver very well, very consistently. The customer benefits. They also carry an unusual drink called jalab. It’s a soft drink (non-carbonated) that is made from fruits and herbs, a concoction that tastes like roses smell, but nothing like roses taste. It is a little difficult to describe the flavors at Les Amies because flavors are combined in novel ways. The humus ($2.50) is the best I’ve had within many miles. It’s freshly made and flavorful. I had to go back the next day because I couldn’t stop thinking about the food and the flavors. I tried the kafta (ground beef sandwich, $3.25) which was surprisingly tender and flavorful. I also tried the baba genouje (humus made from eggplant, $2.50). Wow. I am going to go back to Les Amies, to the gracious hostesses Joyce and Gina, to sit on the patio and relax, and I am going to try everything on their menu, and each of the soups.
onto whatever you bring in; shoes, shirts, or even you! The theme of the Weavver art is Comic Con. From the site, “Slum Circus is a collective of comic book artists with a special interest in horror. Check out their website online at www.slumcircus.org. This is an after party for Comic Con and pre-party for the larger Slum Circus show on the 28th!”
