Lunchtime lineup out the door of the Falafel King

Falafel King is a Mediterranean restaurant downtown. As you watch the production line, you will notice that most customers order one of their fresh pita sandwiches: chicken, beef or mixed shawarma or a falafel. Each of these sandwiches comes with a slice of baklava.

If you are interested in a cool dessert after your meal, you can go two doors down to Fiasco Gelato.

  • This is my favourite restaurant. The best falafel and shawarmas I have had. And you can not beat the price. -- JamesTeterenko 15:33, 5 Dec 2004 (PST)
  • I would also add that this is a must stop place to eat. New comers to town, or visitors really should not miss this place, their schwarma's are awesome. Super friendly owner as well :) --oddroot 19:26, 19 January 2007 (UTC)
