Massis Kabob

301 South Glendale Ave, Glendale

If you’ve spent much time at the Glendale Galleria, Massis Kabob might prompt flashbacks of preteen years spent wandering around the food court. But the famous kabobery (yes, that’s a word) has made the jump from food court mini-chain to brick-and-mortar with its first standalone location on Glendale Ave. The Armenian spot looks like any other fast-casual, counter-service spot—a soda fountain, generic furniture, a big picture menu overhead—but unlike most chains, Massis puts its kabob grilling operation on full display. Tender cubes of beef shish kabob and cornish hen drumsticks taste as good as they look, but overall, the chicken and beef koubideh remain our go-to’s. These ground meat kabobs burst with juice and are perfectly seasoned throughout. Get one of each on a bed of Massis’s buttery rice, along with their excellent hummus to scoop up with pita. The combo plate is a generous amount of food for under $20, made better by the fact you don’t have to navigate a mall parking structure to eat it.

Zankou Chicken

Zankou certainly isn’t the best Mediterranean food in LA, but it’s still an old friend who always has your back.

Dr. Sandwich is an excellent, kosher Mediterranean spot in Beverly Hills. Use it for a quick lunch when hummus and shawarma sound good.
