Joan's Birthday

Akasha Restaurant in the historic Hull Building, Culver City (1925)

We celebrated Joan's birthday a bit early this year at Akasha in Culver City for dinner. I've always liked this restaurant. I've had breakfast and lunch here, but never dinner. The selections were inspired and delicious.

The birthday girl ordered Akasha's pan roasted chicken with summer vegetable fricassee, piquillos, cipollinis and grilled eggplant. Joan gave me a taste of her chicken and it was really divine. The next time I go to Akasha, I'm ordering this!

I had the Bali Seafood Curry which consisted of scallops, shrimp, calamari, mussels, king salmon, baby spinach and cilantro on a bed of black forbidden rice. It was yummy.

Larry ordered the Cheeseburger with gruyere cheese. 
Cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger!

We had a delightful early evening, excellent service and topped off our meal with the most delicious KahlĂșa ice cream riddled with  chocolate bits!

I do love the warmth and ambiance of this spot.  The room is huge. I do remember eating here when it was an Italian restaurant.  One section of Akasha's is a little coffee house, bakery and cafe. The larger side has a full bar, many interior tables. There's also a nice patio for dining.

The building that houses Akasha's Restaurant is called The Hull Building. It's Historic Site #2 according to the Culver City Historical Society. The exterior of the building hasn't changed a bit! Read about it's history HERE.
Happy Early Birthday, Joan!!
