“…it’s our duty to stop you from sleeping on Amir’s. The eponymous falafel is strong, but you’re here for their knockout lineup of Israeli salads, ranging from smoky fried eggplant to some of the Valley’s best hummus. And that deathly hot house-made hot sauce? Order extra.”

“Amir’s falafel is tucked away in one of a thousand unassuming shopping centers along Ventura Boulevard in Studio City, only this one happens to be special. The falafel at Amir’s are actually shaped like small balls, golden brown in color and flecked with tiny, pale sesame seeds. The balls are smaller than most, and the light, crisp texture of each one is addictive. They are perfect with a plate full of Amir’s signature side dishes or stuffed in a sandwich with plenty of pickles.”
