The 100 best cheap eats in Toronto

Souk Tabüle’s Phoenician fries

They’re listed under “sides” at this sleek, casual Canary District restaurant, but eating fries as a main course is, of course, a Canadian national pastime. Consider this a Middle Eastern riff on poutine: a deep bowl of golden, freshly fried spuds dusted with a generous layer of za’atar, and artfully drizzled with tangy tahini and fresh herbs.

15 New Restaurants to Check Out in March

The Canary District’s new counter-service outpost of the Tabülè chain isn’t just serving streamlined versions of sit-down food. Everything arrives quickly— on real plates—and no shortcuts are taken. Entrées are priced for one, sized for two: the turmeric-tinged Beirut pulled chicken is exceptionally moist and lean, served over seasoned rice. It’s stiff competition for the punchy beef shawarma or falafel platters. And for those who want a satisfying skillet of roasted tomatoes, peppers and eggs for dinner, there’s all-day shakshuka. A side order of crispy Phoenician fries, blasted with za’atar and showered in tahini, is always a good idea.

Souk Tabule – Ry’s Ratings

Souk Tabule is related to the other Tabule restaurants around Toronto, but offers a very different format in dining. Souk means “market” in Arabic, and that’s the feel they are trying to give to us through their “fast-casual” restaurant experience.

Their Middle Eastern food is healthy and nutritious, allergy-friendly and can easily serve those who eat vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free. You can easily pick up or eat in with small groups or very large ones.

MIDDLE EASTERN BRUNCH AT SOUK TABULE

The Toronto food scene is so abundant, and each month, there seems to be another new place popping up. With so many great restaurants in the city, I think in order to attract (and keep) customers, restaurant owners have to put thought not only into their food, but also into their interior design. Now don’t get me wrong, beautiful décor could never make up for bad food. But, since we are so spoiled for choice in Toronto, we now expect a restaurant to hit all the marks, if it’s going to impress us. We are millennials after all – demanding, aesthetically-driven, Instagram-obsessed, millennials! The owners of Tabülè Middle Eastern Cuisine must understand this concept very well. Tabule is one of my favourite places for Middle Eastern food in the city. So, when I saw pictures of the gorgeous interior of Souk Tabule on Instagram, I knew I needed to get over there STAT. ~ Dine and Fash

Restaurant Review: Tabule Souk

The folks behind Tabule have done it again, they’ve expanded their Middle Eastern restaurant group to the Canary District with Tabule Souk.  This cafe doubles as a marketplace for all of your favourite, but hard to find, traditional Middle Eastern ingredients- many of which are Tabule’s trademark products.

While the cuisine remains the same (very gluten-free friendly), the concept is different from the other outposts, offering guests a more casual dining experience.  A beautiful and open space, creates great energy and lighting to plug in and work for the day while noshing on some great food. ~ Gluten Freedom Inc

DIDIERYHC Lifestyle – Tabule Souk

Bulgar wheat and diced tomatoes. Chopped parsley, green onion and fresh mint. Add in some olive oil, lemon juice, salt and black pepper. This is not a hot new recipe that I have just come up with as part of my New Years resolution but it does make for a nice salad. Those are the ingredients of tabule, one of the quintessential Middle Eastern dishes and the mixture immediately conjures up images of pita bread, delicious hummus and shakshuka dishes. It also happens to be the name of a restaurant in Toronto. ~ DIDIERYHC Lifestyle
