Falafel at Pita Bar & Grill
Fairfax/Beverly/La Brea/Third St.

Pita Bar & Grill (or PB&G as we like to call it) probably has the best shawarma in Los Angeles, but their kickass falafel is also not to be missed. Each flavorful ball is perfectly crispy on the outside, with the slightest bit of heat on the inside. Dip those suckers in hummus with olive oil or one of their many house-made condiments like tahini, harissa or amba (a delectable pickled mango sauce) for the full experience. The plate is on the steep side—it'll run you $10—but it packs a solid portion of falafel, rice, Israeli salad, hummus and warm pita. Top it all off with a watermelon agua fresca ($2.50) and you've got yourself an A+ Mediterranean meal.

Pita Bar & Grill has THE best shawarma in Los Angeles. Sure, yes, that's my opinion, but it's also true. I've suffered this vast city of uninspired Middle Eastern food and dry, flavorless pita wraps for years. After long searching PB&G was shining beacon of flavor and fluffy laffa in a wasteland of mediocrity. Their shawarma laffa is a delicious wrap of delicate meats and pickled vegetables that can be topped with any of their many house-made sauces like tahina, amba, and harisa. All of it can be washed down with one of their top-notch fruit juices.
