King Falafel

King Falafel to close after 38 years

If you're craving shawarma, you better head towards Bathurst and Eglinton soon because after nearly four decades in Forest Hill, King Falafel will soon be shutting its doors for good.

This north Toronto institution, known for its simple, but delicious Middle Eastern fare, will serve its last pita on New Year's Eve.

For 38 years, King Falafel has been offering up falafel, shawarma and hummus from behind its no-frills counter. Savour it over the next 10 days.
