Come here for the hummus...

note: this is a review for the other location

Come here for the hummus... but stay for the eggplant.

Vegans are hummus connoisseurs, and this hummus did not disappoint. Creamy without being heavy, it was delicious. Of note, the fried eggplant was delicious.

This restaurant is in the middle of an industrial landscape and thus off the beaten path. They have a second location, too.

However, despite the odd location, it is a local favourite. It has been heralded as the #1 falafels in Toronto (as per blogTO readers) and also reviewed on the Food Network, so it has been getting a lot of great press.

Their specialty is also the laffa bread (vegan) although I wasn't too impressed with it. Come for the hummus, not the laffa bread. But try the bread while you're here.

Pros: hummus!
Cons: location
