Bite-Sized: Nabil's Middle East Fast Food, Hamilton, Ontario

On the corner of James North and Wilson in Hamilton is a strip mall. Inside this strip mall there is a pet store, a pretty good sushi buffet and among other things, the best falafel I have ever had. I have sworn by Nabil’s for falafels since 2006 and it is simply the best (better than all the rest). 

The Falafel Pita:

Warm, soft pita that gets doused in a spicy red sauce and creamy garlic sauce, while two big fresh falafel balls get fried and then placed inside the pita. They add lettuce and tomatoes, wrap it all up and quickly throw it on the grill for a slightly crisp and very warm pita. The magic of this pita is both the quality of the falafel – crispy on the outside, soft and airy on the inside, with lots of parsley and garlic – as well as the creamy garlic sauce. While a lot of falafel pitas tend to be dry and bland, this one is creamy and full of flavor. I highly recommend it!
