fresh falafel, old recipes
about the restaurant
What began three quarters of a century ago in Jerusalem has crossed the Atlantic to become one of Los Angeles' favorite fast casual restaurants for authentic Middle Eastern/Mediterranean food. A true Hollywood success story.
Since opening more than 26 years ago in Los Angeles, Amer's Falafel has become recognized as having the best falafel and rotisserie cooked meats in Southern California. Our secret: a unique blend of Mediterranean spices passed down from generation to generation to create what many food critics have described as the perfectly spiced falafel or shawarma sandwich.
Our philosophy is simple: to serve delicious tasting authentic Middle Eastern/Mediterranean food to those looking for a quick and healthy meal that is reasonable priced.
With the addition of the taboon (clay oven) to make thick, fresh laffa bread, new contemporary décor, flat screens, and added outdoor seating, come see for yourself why people line up for our famous Middle Eastern food.
