Gjerlina Take Away
- By Ashley Halverson
Well here we go again… back to take-out only for a few more weeks at least. Fortunately Los Angeles restaurants have risen to the challenge over the last six months and everyone seems to have stepped up their take-out game!
Gjelina on Abbot Kinney has a long history in this department with their Take-Away menu offerings. Whether or not you’re already a fan of the restaurant – you need to add this to your rotation. They’re open at 7am daily serving up breakfast delights, coffee and tea. Sandwiches and salads round out the menu – I’ve heard the Blackened Fish Sandwich is incredible. If you’re a Gjelina newbie then first and foremost you must try one of their wood fired pizzas! The classic Margherita is always a good choice. The Escarole with greens, mushroom, red onion, garlic, leeks, mozzarella, fontina and calabrian chiles is a veggie dream. Or go for the local favorite – the Guanciale with tomato sauce, olives, fresno chiles and mozzarella. Craft beer and wine is available for take-away too! With food purchase only of course. And your order wouldn’t be complete without dessert – Cheesecake to die for or inquire what their daily cookies and cakes are. It’s so important to support our local restaurants during this challenging time and it’s important to give yourself a break from the kitchen. Win-Win!
