You can get an amazing meal for $5.50 at Olive in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Feliz—but don’t forget to bring your cash. The Olive does not take credit cards, though they do provide an ATM. It’s located at the corner of Franklin and Hillhurst, and the combination meals are delicious. Try a falafel wrap (comes with hummus and pita chips) or the very tender beef shawarma plate, which is served with hummus, pita bread, and a side salad. The food is inexpensive, made to order, and delicious. 1904 ½ Hillhurst Avenue, www.theoliverestaurant.com.
