33. Lebanon: Falafel World

Falafel World
2396 Bloor Street West
(just east of Jane Street)
416 769 9336

No matter when you drop in, Falafel World always seems busy. It's counter service and, to give them credit, they dish it out quickly. This family run business is popular with the Bloor West Village locals but it will never win an eco-friendly competition. Even if you dine in, you're served on foam plates and have to struggle with plastic cutlery.
That being said, the food is consistently tasty, filling, good value for money and there are many veggie options. I order a Falafel Plate - cabbage salad, hummus, tabbouleh, three large falafel balls, tahini dressing, whole wheat pita, $7.00. Add a bottle of apple juice and tax - $8.50 for a generous dinner.
There are a few faded posters of the middle east but they fail to cheer up the gloomy, cafeteria style decor. It's not surprising that much of their business is take-out.
