Khash-Khash Kebab at Carousel

The Tcholakian family opened Carousel in the back corner of east Hollywood’s Hye Plaza in 1983, serving Lebanese-Armenian cuisine, and have since gone on to run a more elaborate branch in downtown Glendale. It’s the Khash-Khash Kebab that you’ll want here—juicy, well-spiced, hand-molded skewers of ground beef lula arrive on a bed of cracked pita, doused with yogurt, garlic and pine nuts. Carousel also has delectable chicken lula. Either way, your meal comes with buttery bulgur and garbanzo beans; grilled pita brushed with tomato sauce; roasted tomatoes and jalapenos; onion and parsley salad dusted with sumac; and a tangy cabbage slaw tossed with tomatoes, herbs and olive oil vinaigrette. Stick around for live entertainment (there will definitely be dancing) on Friday and Saturday nights.

Definitely order the lamb kabob. The quality is evident and it makes you remember what good lamb really tastes like. Their dips are also delicious.
