New To L.A.
I'm really jonesing for a lamb sharwarma, not a Gyro... (even thou one of this would hit the spot too)but a sliced pita stuffed with lamb from a vertical rotisserie, and hummus and all that jazz. like Mamoun's back home in the west village NYC...how i miss my city. Im in need of some direction all advise would be appreciated.
You don't say where in LA you are; I'll start with Skaf's if you're in the Valley or Northeast LA.
Shawarma is easy to find but Skaf's hummus is special and the cabbage salad is a winner.
Interestingly, good gyros is actually hard to find in LA.
Skaf's is closed Sundays in NoHo; not sure about Glendale.

Pita Kitchen in Sherman Oaks has the top shawarma/hummus duo.

I like the shawarma at Zankou Chicken (several locs), and also Falafel Arax (e. Hollywood), Beverly Falafel in a pinch (w. Hollywood/Bev. Hills), and though it's sort of gyro-like but might hit the spot, the version at Sofra in Culver City.
Oh yeah - they don't usually put hummus on it, but generally tahini and some kind of chopped salad with tomato.
C'mon - it's coooold in New York!!
