It can be hard to find great falafel in Los Angeles, but Amir's Falafel, found in a small strip mall in Studio City, is doing it right. There's a lot to choose from, so go for one of the combo plates to maximize your sampling. Along with shawarma and shish kabob, Amir's offers flavorful salads, freshly made hummus and pita, and a variety of pickled veggies to try. And then, of course, there's the falafel, crisp on the outside with a well-seasoned chickpea mix on the inside. A TV blaring Middle Eastern programming hangs in the corner as producers from the neighboring CBS Radford Studios chow down during their lunch break.

For Valley dwellers, the battle between Amir's and Joe's Falafel is a contentious one. I think both are fantastic. You come to Amir's for their spot-on array of sides and their crispy falafel, while Joe's has better meat options. Amir's is right next to an adult video store and a marijuana dispensary, so for some people this little strip mall is a one-stop shop. So I've heard.
