Adana Restaurant Review

: Since the late ’90s, Edward Khechemyan has been deftly melding influences from countries like Armenia, Iran and Lebanon at Adana in Glendale. The space features hand-painted frescoes, arches, tables with brown cloths and high-backed chairs that make diners feel like royalty. Oddly, they feature burgers and Philadelphia steak sandwiches, but you’re better off with Middle Eastern dishes. Kebabs are all delectable, including koobideh, a mix of ground beef and “special spices.” Hatam, or Cornish hen, is marinated, juicy and pairs well with hummus and yogurt-cucumber dip. The Vegetarian combo plate allows diners to enjoy a range of different flavors, including hummus, eggplant, tangy tabouli, herbaceous sarma and supple falafel. If you’re lucky, they’ll have honey cake for dessert, with alternating layers of sticky cake and honey cream. To drink, you can order hot tea or a tart yogurt libation accented with cucumber and dill.
