A meal at this excellent Lebanese restaurant/bakery spot can be overwhelming - the menu features more than 70 dishes - so we recommend starting with either chicken or beef shawarma (both are among the best in LA) and ending it with a visit to their daily baked goods case. The saroukh (cheese, onion, and parsley-filled bread) is crunchy, savory, and just a little spicy and you can wash it all down with some rice pudding at the end.
