A tasty shawarma

I love good shawarma’s, but they are hard to come by on the west side of LA. Luckily I discovered Zankou’s Chicken. The chicken is delicious, but I come for the shawarma’s, either chicken or tri-tip in a wrap or on a plate (I wish they had lamb!). Their hummus is delicious too, eaten with a warm pita.

Good stuff!

Whole Rotisserie Chicken

If only Nandos was in the USA. This will have to hold me over.

Mmmm… Make your own wrap with the pitas you get

Magical Chicken, Great Shewarma

Zankou Chicken is one of a very few Armenian fast food restaurants. Never heard of Armenian fast food? Give it a try, you’re in for a treat!

Zankou’s signature dish is, of course, their chicken. They make a wonderful rotisserie chicken that is uniquely flavorful, and has a wonderfully crunchy skin, while being moist and delicious inside. Served with a garlic sauce (made from crushed garlic and olive oil) and pickled veggies, their chicken makes for a delicious and healthful meal.

Zankou also offers Beef Shewarma, and a Chicken Shewarma too (called Tarna). They’re both excellent, and easily among the best to be found in Los Angeles. Both dishes are available in both a plate (served with Tahini sauce, hummos, a salad, and pickled veggies), or as a sandwich in a pita.

Zankou also has excellent falafel and a nice salad to round out their menu with some vegetarian options. Falafels are available separately or in pita bread as a sandwich.

Zankou is strictly a dine-in fast-food or take-out experience. Don’t expect lots of atmosphere, but they more than make up for that with fantastic food at reasonable prices.

Good chicken, but not the best

Their website claims the best chicken in town at any price. While the chicken is flavorful it’s not moist all throughout and the white meat in my chicken was extremely dry. I think the Costco rotisserie chicken and El Pollo Loco grilled chickens are juicier through and through.

Due to the traffic at the intersection, parking might be tough but they do have a lot next to them where they have a parking attendant at night (still free though).

The other thing I wanted to note was that the cashier gave me a somewhat chilly reception and she could probably benefit from cheering up, but, like others said, you don’t come here for the environment. Get your food and go.

1/2 Chicken Plate

2 pitas, 1/2 a chicken and some hummus. Not a bad meal. You can get around the dry chicken by dipping it in the hummus.

That place is really cool for a fast food...

That place is really cool for a fast food place. We had shawarma and falafel plate for lunch which both were really jummy and brought at least half of it back home for later! And all that for a moderate price. Wish they had a branch closer to work! )c;

You walk into this place and it overwhelms...

You walk into this place and it overwhelms you. It smells so great! Even though the name is Chicken that isn’t their strong suit. The meat is fantastic and so flavorful. It is the kind of place that you should go with a group and try lots and lots of things.
