We have followed the Falafel House from its tiny location on Academy to its first location on Corydon (at the end of our street) to its current home at Corydon and Wilton. We have been hosting a guest who is vegetarian so it was the perfect place to take her for our last brunch together.
As D had travelled to Israel this fall, he had a real hankering for falafel and ordered the “Middle East” with eggplant and extra spice. I had a taste of the eggplant-perfection.
“Israeli” falafel was also ordered and came topped with home made French Fries. There were eight perfectly seasoned falafel in each order. Even the big appetites at our table had trouble cleaning their plates.
Our vegetarian guest was delighted with her vegetarian hash and they allowed her to substitute her toast for potato pancakes which we all got to taste. Crunch on the edges and hearty in the middle-just the way we like em.
I wanted to taste the schnitzel but also wanted eggs to go with their hash browns that can be customized with onion and garlic. A huge brunch plate and great value (but made for a boring photo).
We waited in line to get in and were kinda squished in our booth so we dined quickly to make room for the line up that was now out the door. I have read that some people take offense to the owner’s “hustle in and out” atmosphere. I think many appreciate it when a table gets vacated for them but change their mind when they are told: “no more coffee for them-thank you for leaving”. We love his good natured chants-it reminds us of our favourite New York deli and bagel shops.
The Falafel House puts out fresh food, deliciously prepared and so affordable-he can run his restaurant any way he wishes.
