Best Falafel in LA?

I've been craving falafel and would like to where Chowhounds like to get it. I've had it many times at Zankou Chicken, but I'm positive there are even better versions out there. I live Downtown, so Glendale and Westwood are both feasible for me. TIA!
I enjoyed the late Eat-A-Pita's falafel... but, now, I'd have to say Pita Kitchen's falafel, located off of Ventura Blvd in Sherman oaks, is my current fave. Too bad it's nowhere near where you or I live.

It's a bit further from you, but Carnival in Sherman Oaks is the best I've had in LA; crisp on the outside, moist on the inside, tasting of garlic, parsley and sesame...they are as perfect as falafel can be. I find the falafels at Marouch to be dry and heavy whereas Carnival's are both more flavorful and lighter.
