Caribbean at Kassava and Vietnamese from Paddy Rice

1) West Hollywood: Kassava Caribbean Restaurant has been on an expansion streak. Let's review: back in September of 2008, the first Kassava opened on West 3rd Street in what was the North End Pizzeria. With dishes like smothered chicken and curried crab legs - all at reasonable prices - the place became a neighborhood favorite. Fast forward a couple of years. Deep into the food truck revolution, Kassava rolls out with not one, but two trucks set to service all of LA with their Caribbean inflected cuisine. Just about two months later Kassava Caribbean Restaurant opens on Sunset in West Hollywood serving the same menu as the original location.

This new outpost also just started to offer local delivery after its official June 1 debut. The name on the front is also a bit different. Billed as Saffore's Kassava, this location is in partnership with the salon, Saffore's, which is in the same building next door. There's a flat screen TV over their counter, in full view of the dining area, currently broadcasting World Cup games. Colorful tablecloths and the same roster of flavorful food add something fresh to the clubby neighborhood. Open now from 11AM to 11PM daily. [EaterWire] — DG

2) Hollywood: Remember that cute new pho shop in development? Well, Paddy Rice opened as expected and LAW reports on the casual cafe, glass chandeliers and all. The plan was to avoid that fast food feel, yet still serve simple Vietnamese fare including pho, spring rolls, and banh hoi. Mission accomplished. Also important to note, no alcohol is served but there are tons of tvs to watch the game. [LAW]
