This long-time Spanish cafe in Woodland Hills recently extended its hours and is now open as a wine bar at night. Gasolina Cafe is pouring exclusively natural wines from California and Spain, with a selection of tapas and conservas to go with the wines. They also host a monthly wine tasting on Wednesday with three wines paired with snacks. Customers can also buy bottles to take home for $20 off the wine bar price.
How to book: Walk in or reserve on Tock.
Chef/owner Sandra Cordero was raised between the bustling city center of Amsterdam and the rural, close-knit villages in the Galicia region in Spain, a dual heritage that’s reflected in each dish at Gasolina Cafe, which Cordero opened in 2015. Seasonally driven, sustainably raised, and locally sourced ingredients elevate what would be simple breakfast items like Avocado Toast, Patatas Bravas, and a Chorizo Omelet, into near religious experiences. Even more exciting, Cordero hosts regular paella nights, with a meat-based, seafood-based, and vegetarian paella on offer in a three-course menu with optional wine pairings.
How to order: Walk-ins welcome for patio dining; pickup and delivery via their website.
