Joe’s Falafel is technically in Universal City, but this tiny stripmall spot has such good food, we’ll turn a blind eye to neighborhood boundary lines. Plus, its location around the corner from Cahuenga pass location is around the corner from all the major studios, making it the ideal pilgrimage for your lunch hour. You can’t really go wrong with anything at this order-at-the-counter spot, but the beef kabobs, chicken shawarma, and yes, the falafel are all good places to start. Everything falls under $15.
