1206 Seymour Street, Vancouver
Advice: Call ahead for takeout. The hot sauce is great and it is not to hot.
This is one of my favourite places in the city for Falafel, it is not only delicious and fresh it is also organic. Most of the food at Nuba is organic, it is Lebanese hearty comfort food at its finest and this location is considered their café as opposed to their larger restaurant on the other side of downtown. My favourites here are the Garden Falafel ($6.25) falafel with avocado and humous; the Falafel Plate ($9.50) organic chickpeas, fava beans, veggies and spices; the Deluxe Toasted Veggie ($9) with falafel, baba, macedonian feta, taboulleh, and caramelized onions. There are Pita wraps, Mezze (appetizer size of most items) and Plates (the works with brown rice or potatoes along with veggies and pita), soups and salads. If you have a large appetite or some friends with you then you may want to share the “La Feast” a two course vegetarian metza platter for 2 ($26). They have fresh squeezed juices, pop and authentic Turkish Coffee ($2.75).
