County’s best-kept secret. But it’s time to stop being selfish and share its delicious wealth. Here is the best of what Whittier has to offer."

"This is a place to go for a Ploughman of cured meats and cheeses, a properly oversized burger, shepherd’s pie, fish ‘n frites and housemade sausages."

"Open in Whittier since August 2013, The Rusty Monk describes itself as a Belgian-style gastropub. As such, it unsurprisingly offers a Belgian-heavy list of draft and bottled beers that also includes craft beers from North Coast Brewing, Flying Dog Brewery, and beyond. Per Eater LA, The Rusty Monk also offers European wines and a pub menu with schnitzel, sausages, moules-frites, Bavarian pretzels, and more."
