Falafel Experts

For those of you truly familiar with Israeli Style, like one that can be found in Paris, L'as Du Falafel, with scrumptious red cabbage slaw and buttery chunks of fried eggplants, garlic infused chili, with 2-3 pieces of fries sprinkled on top.

I am a recent Los Angeles transplant, and though I've only found one place that can ever compare to L'as Du in New York City, entitled Azuri Cafe, which makes authentic israeli falafel in a similar fashion, i still have yet to find something similar in Los Angeles. I've tried a few falafel joints around here: Alladin, Falafel King, Zankou, and the highly reviewed "Eat a Pita", but to be quite frank, all their falafels taste like crap. Granted, most of these aren't genuine Israeli falafel, in fact, the owners are primarily Lebanese, Egyptian, Iranian, etc, but I'm sure, if an israeli falafel stand do not exist here, I can find one of the arabic variety that is up to par, at least in quality, with Azuri and L'as Du.

For the love of GOD, please help!!!!!!!!
