Where we've featured it
For most people, the Cahuenga Pass is the traffic apocalypse you submit yourself to only if you have to get yourself from Hollywood to The Valley on a weekday. But there’s actually a good reason to stop and take a breather here: Joe’s Falafel. The tiny stripmall spot is serving some of the best falafel in the entire city. Lines get long during lunch hour, but luckily their service is quick and efficient, getting you back to your death cubicle on time.
Joe’s Falafel is technically in Universal City, but this tiny strip mall spot has such good food, we’ll ignore neighborhood boundary lines. Plus, its location around the corner from Cahuenga pass location is around the corner from all the major studios, making it the ideal pilgrimage for your lunch hour. You can’t really go wrong with anything at this order-at-the-counter spot, but the beef kabobs, chicken shawarma, and yes, the falafel are all good places to start. Everything falls under $15.
