Falafel Wars!!

I started off my love affair with falafel at Tov-Li when it was a hole in the wall. There was just a stand up counter and three stools. Then over time it became a legitimate restaurant with not just one location but two.

Then I was introduced to Me-Va-Me. I thought I was in heaven and ditched my love affair with Tov-Li. (sorry but it happens).

This week I was introduced to Dr. Laffa from @daniellagold18. OMG. This place rocks. To begin with – the entrance is theย LOADING DOCK of an industrial unit. I even took a photo for proof, so you wouldnt go looking for this restaurant and start muttering “where is this restaurant”.

see what I mean?

The pita they use is not your normal pita. Take a look at this photo that shows you how they bake the pita.

Not your normal oven!!

Now take a look a the photo of the falafel. Am I right or Am I right?

Not your average falafel!!

Now take a look at the Sabih that I ordered. Its got all sorts of goodness in there. Basically it’s an Iraqui Sandwich made with a boiled egg, fried eggplant and a sour mango sauce. I was a happy camper.


In the event that you want more than just falafel or sabih…here’s a photo of the menu.


I need to organize a tweet up at Dr. Laffa, STAT. Who’s in?

Dr. Laffa, 40 Magnetic Drive, Sunday to Friday 9:30 a.m to 7 p.m.

    Thanx for sharing, I will definitely check it out with some friends. I have to disagree with you though, my mom makes the BEST falafel :-). And my version of the sandwich is even better. When I get back to TO, I’ll e-mail you for a Twitter lesson and I’ll bring my falafel sandwich for you to try. ๐Ÿ™‚
