Anwar Jibawi Opens a Brick-and-Mortar Restaurant in Downtown LA

April 4, 2024

Anwar Jibawi, an Arab social media influencer with over one million followers on IGTV and several thousand diners devoted to him on Facebook, has launched his own restaurant in downtown LA under his mother Amal's ownership. They offer traditional Palestinian family recipes from their own family recipe box which have proven so popular.

This restaurant boasts an exquisite menu and has earned high praise on Google reviews. All food offered here is Halal certified.

The concept

Anwar Jibawi first rose to fame through Vine, before expanding his reach through YouTube, Instagram and Tik Tok with millions of followers across these platforms. Now Anwar has unlocked yet another avenue of income by opening Anwar's Kitchen in downtown LA that serves Middle Eastern fusion cuisine.

Anwar's Kitchen evolved out of an IGTV series created during an influenza pandemic quarantine period. Anwar and Amal invited viewers into their home, teaching viewers to prepare Palestinian and Mediterranean classics that now comprise Anwar's Kitchen menu items. Anwar's Kitchen now provides in-house seating as well as takeout orders delivered biodegradably through third-party delivery services such as Grubhub, Doordash and Postmates for convenient dining experiences.

Anwar's Kitchen may be located within Westfield Culver City mall, which may cause concern among some diners, but the venue offers something unique: It is part of an all-encompassing retail and dining experience including coffee shops, artisanal bakeries, rooftop lounges, etc.

The service

Anwar Jibawi first rose to fame via the short-form video app Vine and his mother Amal attempted to expel him from their house; now she is one of his business partners at his restaurant empire which serves Middle Eastern fusion dishes passed down from family.

This upscale eatery can be found inside Culver City's Westfield Mall and boasts delicious chicken wraps, salads and hummus as well as mouthwatering baklava for visitors to enjoy.

The atmosphere

Jibawi transitioned from Vine, where he quickly established himself as one of its most beloved personalities, to YouTube where he started a cooking series with his mother Amal and went on to open his own Middle Eastern fusion restaurant based on recipes she provided him.

Anwar's Kitchen provides visitors with delicious chicken wraps, hummus and delectable baklava that the whole family can enjoy. A must-stop when exploring Downtown Historic District! Their friendly staff offers top-of-the-line service while their warm atmosphere welcomes all. Additionally, this place is well known for offering hibiscus tea, lemonade or coffee!
