Falafel Arax, a local legend for chickpea fritters, is opening a Studio City branch at the corner of Colfax Avenue and Moorpark Street, building on the eatery’s success at their Hollywood and Glendale locations.

The serious, fast-casual Middle Eastern restaurant has specialized in falafel since 1980. Falafel Arax president Gerard Kassabian describes the menu as focusing on falafel “using fun, delicious and healthy options including wraps, press sandwiches, salads and other surprise options that will be revealed at a later date.” The menu also includes hummus and smoky mutabbal (aka baba ghannouj) as well as made-to-order fattoush and tabboule salads.

Falafel Arax started construction two weeks ago. The new location is expected to open by summer.
