Dune might appear at first to be just another neighborhood falafel joint, but this small shop is bordering on legend status around these parts. Why? Because that falafel is some of the best you’ll get anywhere in LA - and same goes for their hummus and fried chicken shawarma sandwich. The interior of this place is basically just the counter where you order, but their front patio is exactly where you want to be eating your Mediterranean feast.
