X’tiosu Kitchen is an order-at-the-window spot in Boyle Heights that serves fantastic Mediterranean/Mexican fusion food perfect for a quick lunch or low-key weekday dinner. Your first order of business needs to be the chicken shawarma tacos, but the chorizo kebab plate (with some really excellent hummus) also needs to hit the table. Plus, there’s a cute little front patio to sit and enjoy it all in. Just make sure you put their garlicky Toum sauce on absolutely everything.
