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).

So many of my friends have an affection for the Middle Eastern cuisine and can contribute that fondness beginning at this establishment.

New Kid on the Block: Tabule Bayview Village

The newest and hautest eatery has just flung its sexy floor to ceiling glass doors open, ushering in a new era at the posh uptown Bayview Village mall. The recently vacated Bakery Garden Café made way for Tabülè, the fourth location for this Middle Eastern hotspot. Coming off the heels of opening their latest location mere months ago, husband and wife and partners Chef Rony Goraichy and Diana Sideris have been aggressive with their growth plans, wisely spreading their locations across the city, but their newest (and most lux location) wasn’t originally part of the plan. “They actually approached us”, explains Diana, and after one look at the prime property, she was smitten.

Tabule is known throughout Toronto for their consistently delicious Middle Eastern cuisine.

It’s 11am but mixologist Nishan Nepulangoda (of Blowfish) insists on starting off with either a tequila or gin based cocktail. I choose the tequila based ‘Arabian Chiquita’. A sweet citrus drink served in a martini glass, the green chartreuse and basil add unique herbal notes.
