Now Magazine’s Readers Choice Awards 2019

Thank you Toronto for voting Tabule “Best Middle Eastern” and “Best Falafel” in Now Magazine’s Readers Choice Awards for 2019! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Best Middle Eastern

“Great Middle Eastern food is by no means in short supply in Toronto, but no one does it quite like Tabue. Chef Rony Goraichy’s group of eateries puts major flavour into Lebanese classics, and the sophisticated atmosphere sets them apart. Bring the magic home with takeout, or try Tabule’s take on brunch at sister spot Souk Tabule.”

Best Falaffel

“Falafels dry, crumbly and bland? Not so at Tabule’s kitchens (in Leslieville, Midtown and Bayview Village, plus spin-off Souk Tabule in the Canary District), where chef Rony Goraichy makes magic out of humble chickpeas and favas. Get ‘em as an app or a main (accompanied by grilled veggies and brown lentils with rice).” 

Inside Tabule’s new fast-casual spot in the Canary District

Souk Tabule never would have existed if it hadn’t been for one persistent real-estate company.

As the Pan Am Games were preparing to descend on what is now the Canary District, LiveWorkLearnPlay was thinking about what could move in once the Americas’ athletes left.

LWLP began courting some of the city’s boldface names in food and hospitality, and Tabule, the universally beloved Middle Eastern restaurant with locations in Leslieville and midtown, was one of them. (Others successfully brought on board for the area: Sukhothai and Tori’s Bakeshop.) Read More!
