    [dropcap size=big]S[/dropcap]itting on a stretch of San Fernando Road right before Glendale becomes into Burbank is Adana, the Middle Eastern restaurant where owner and chef Edward Khechemyan has amassed a loyal following. During your first visit, you may not notice the swinging kitchen door towards the back until someone has burst through it, carrying trays of dolmeh, eggplant, and impossibly huge plates with kebabs. You, too, should order accordingly: the dolmeh, wrapped in fragrant grape leaves, is stunning. There are three eggplant appetizers, but only one is called the “Eggplant Dish”; that would be the kashk-e-bademjan, delicate slivers of fried eggplant topped with yogurt and sticky caramelized onions, and that would be the one you probably want to try first. And, finally, an entire section of the menu is devoted to chicken, lamb, and beef kebabs, all of which are marinated and cooked on the grill just long enough.
