Looking for Eat a Pita replacement

Not that the grub was that fabulous, but it was a good neighborhood drop-by-take-out Middle eastern option, and sorely missed by me, especially since Noura went away shortly before. Anyone have any rec's? Looking for something open lateish, with eat-in possibility. I'm in WeHo/Ho area. I already know about the EHo places (Caroussel/Marouch) and have tried/don't like the Kosher joint in the Mini-mall on Melrose just East of La Brea.

    Are you near a Zankou Chicken?

      Assume you know about Papa Cristo's? It's only open till 8, I think, and a bit of a haul south, but within those parameters, it's hard to beat.

        I believe Al Wazir would fit what you are looking for. In the same mini mall as Sushi Ike on the Northeast corner of Gower and Hollywood blvd.

          Indeed. Surprisingly decent.

          What about Moishe's in the Farmers Market just down the street from where Eat A Pita was? They make the best Falafel I've had in LA and the rest of their food is pretty amazing as well.

          Enjoy!

            That's the best suggestion yet for that neighborhood, plus they have muhammara dip, which most falafel stands don't have.
