kosher falafal in l.a.?

I'm in Los Feliz so any suggestions nearby would be great but I'm on the west side all the time too. Thanks...

    1. There is a kosher falafelería on the SE corner of Burbank and Whitsett in North Hollywood, next to Ameci Pizza.

      1. I don't remember the name, but there's an Israeli (I think) Glatt Kosher place around Pico and Barrington (in the same plaza as a laundrymat - I think it's on the northeast corner) that has great falafel. I don't keep kosher, but I thought the food there was fantastic. It's a little more expensive than a comparable non-kosher place.

        I could be wrong, but I don't think you'll find much on the east side. There are some falafel places on the west side of Los Feliz / east side of Hollywood, but I don't think any of them are kosher.

          will you're talking about Habayit.
          Its my favorite falafel in Los Angeles. It's Glatt Kosher.

          Heres the info.

          11921 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064

              Thanks! I ate there, one time, and it was great. Last time I was on the west side, I coudn't remember the address. I'll be back....

          1. Something a little closer to you than Pico would be Wholesome Pita on Melrose near La Brea. Never had the falafal, but the other stuff is usually pretty good.

            1. on 9th street downtown is bar-b glatt kosher or something like that. it's pretty darn good.
