Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

As with most reputable eateries in the Valley, Joe’s Falafel can be found in a small Studio City strip mall, where the scent of cumin and coriander is heavy in the air. Follow your nose. A dozen tables are scattered about, along with a row of chairs at the kitchen counter and a blackboard describing the daily specials dangles above the cashier. Most customers don’t come for the specials, though—they come for the falafel, available on a plate ($8.95) or a pita sandwich ($5.50). An expertly fried exterior breaks open to reveal a well seasoned mash of chickpeas; get the plate and you’ll be rewarded with six pieces of falafel, rice, salad and hummus, alongside a warm pita. If you really want to treat yourself, order the freshly made laffa to accompany your meal. Plates are large—enough, sometimes, to split with a friend—but they’re also meant to be enjoyed at a leisurely pace, under ceiling fans that spin lazily against the Valley heat.
