Tel Aviv Grill

Tel Aviv Grill is an Israeli mini-chain with locations dotted across the Valley. Their flagship in Encino looks like any other fast-casual lunch counter, but the quality of the food here stands out like a pair of Crocs at a wedding. As early as 11am, a line forms out front for their shwarma, schnitzel, and skewers served with a multicolor assortment of Israeli salads and dips. You'd have a great meal here if you just close your eyes at picked from behind the counter at random, but our go-to is the beef shawarma pita stuffed with generous portions of shaved, marinated meat, garlicky yogurt, cabbage, pickles, and chopped salad.
