This family-operated Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant in Hawthorne is one of our favorite places in the South Bay for shawarma and falafel. You’re obviously getting the hummus sampler (nine different kinds of hummus for $4.95), but the best thing on the menu is the zucchini dumplings. They’re basically deep-fried balls of zucchini and cheese, and we’d drive back in rush hour just to eat them again.
