Open since 1982, Marouch is one of the longest-standing Armenian/Lebanese restaurants in Hollywood and a pillar of the surrounding community. You can certainly come to this family-run institution and find solid plates of shawarma and kabab combination platters, but Marouch’s greatness lies in their mezze. Muhammara (red pepper and pomegranate seed dip), sugok (crispy Armenian sausage), hummus with ful, and perfectly cooked falafel - bring as many people as you can to Marouch, because there are simply too many great things to order.
