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

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

        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

            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.

                That's Bar-B-Kosher.

                On the west side, I like Habayit. Some disagree, but I think it's worth a try. I usually get the falafel sandwich with hummus and cole slaw inside.
