Recalling the nuked prefab wrap we were served after a late-night movie at the Bloor some years ago, we never understood the fuss about this family-run chain's falafel. Cheap, sure. Best? Not even close. But the freshly prepared version we experienced last spring was a world apart, two crisply fried-to-order chickpea patties lavishly dressed with lettuce, tahini and purple pickled turnip, all stuffed into a whole wheat pita and thoughtfully wrapped in wax paper to prevent those unsightly drips.
