Add Avi Cue to your rolodex of great, quick lunch spots in the Valley. The beloved shawarma pop-up opened a permanent location in Studio City. Even if there’s a line out front, meals happen at lightning speed—we’ve never spent more than 20 minutes inside. The bare-bones menu just has a shawarma sandwich, arayes, fries, and a nutella-stuffed dessert pita. Skip past the ground beef-stuffed arayes—they’re good but the $7 price tag feels steep for what is essentially two bites of food. Instead, if you’re by yourself, focus on the sandwich with juicy, spit-roasted wagyu beef, tomato, onion, parsley, tahini, and amba (a tangy mango condiment). It’ll keep you full well past dinner.
