This week, Lucas goes to Glendale to eat Armenian food at Mini Kabob. The restaurant is run by the Martirosyan family. Ovakim and his wife, Alvard took over the business over 25 years ago and now their son, Armen handles much of the day-to-day. We spend a lunch service with the family and pack into their tiny kitchen to document how the family works together to operate the sometimes chaotic, but always beloved three-table restaurant. We also go to Armen’s second business venture, Mid East Tacos in Highland Park, to see how he’s implementing the culinary lessons he’s learned from Mini Kabob into an Angeleno fusion of Mexican and Armenian food.
