Any one know of a good shawarma/falafal place around Church and Wellesley??? I like the authentic version, not franchises!

        1. Chimichimi, you're wrong. There are more than a couple of good and authentic shwarma and falafel places in T.O. (certainly they meet with the approval of my mid-eastern friends and colleges). However, there aren't any I know if in this area (Church/Wellesley).

          Akram's in Kensington and Ghazale's beside the Bloor Cinema are my top picks. However, neither is a restaurant (Ghazale's is take out and Akram's is take out and a supply/fresh goods store). There are some sit down places that are worthy, but, they slip my mind. I think there is one on John just south of Richmond.

          1. Red & White does amazing falafels, and decent shawarma. They're located at Yonge & Maitland (1 block south of Wellesley). Apparently their roast chicken is amazing also, but I haven't partaken.
