Dr. Laffa needs to requalify

After all the hoopla, I went to the new Bathurst -Stormont location.
I looked around , remembered the past , and couldn't bring myself to spend the money. Essentially talentless and overpriced. Same story , but worse.
The laffa, that of the insipid flour , is now baked in a conveyor belt oven not a tanoor. No sesame , no nothing. The Wonderbread of laffas, good to wipe tables with. Same style of salads as on Magnetic - talentless preparation of the cheapest ingredients, but palatable, Black falafels. And they were busy!
They would fail in Israel; in Toronto - amaaaa

  1. Vinnie..a little mellow-dramatic. $7.00 for a massive, very tasty falafel, with about 10 different toppings to choose from. The lafa still has a very nice, chewy texture. Ate many, way worse, all over Israel last March.

    1. Now tell us what you really think, Vinnie.

      1. What part of town is Israel in?

        1. Hahaha!

          "good to wipe tables with"

            1. Me too. But for what I get out of CH, and even though I think that I am right , I didn't want any risk of a defamation action.
              I had had erred initially anyway, I should have written, "I thin k that Dr. Laffa is a charlatan" This is what I meant.

              1. re: Vinnie Vidimangi

                uh i went there like 2 weeks ago and it was absolutely delicious
                i've also put a number of friends on to it in the past couple years and they also love it

                i don't know what you're talking about, it's still the best thing of its kind available in toronto, dude
