Should you go out of your way for the most decadent shawarma in L.A.? This new Israeli street meat joint in Studio City comes from self-taught chef Aviad Yalin, who’s done barbecue pop-ups around town under the name Avi Cue since 2019. Made with Wagyu beef (with the price tag to match—each pita half costs $15, or $27 or two), the shawarma here is tender, well-seasoned and juicy. You can also grab loaded shawarma fries, Lebanese-style arayes and a vegan option made with cauliflower. If you’re a huge fan of shaved kebab, Avi Cue is a must-visit.
