Fat Pasha sits adjacent to the railroad tracks on the northern edge of the Annex, in the former home of long-time neighbourhood staple, Indian Rice Factory. Sometimes people will wander in unaware of the business change—certain elements of the old restaurant, like its iconic back patio koi pond, have remained—but it doesn't take long to figure out that there's a new kid on the block.

“The Grateful Dead is always on,” says the restaurant's front-of-house manager Kathleen Shattock as she gestures to the mural behind her, which features a fez-clad figure with a more-than-passing resemblance to Jerry Garcia against a background of iconic Middle Eastern vignettes rendered in a puff of hookah smoke. Another mural on the building's exterior wall shows the same husky fellow parting the red sea.

The mural sums up Fat Pasha's concept: Old-school Middle Eastern cuisine with a rock-and-roll twist.

This particular fusion is personal for owner Anthony Rose, who is both Jewish and a total Deadhead. As Kathleen puts it, his vision for Fat Pasha was to blend creative Middle Eastern culinary stylings reminiscent of Israeli-born chef Yotam Ottolenghi with “Jewish grandmother food” such as latkes, lox and brisket.

As for the rock-and-roll? Well, that part just comes naturally. “We like having loud and ruckus atmospheres and having a lot of fun doing what we do,” says Kathleen.

    We love the friendly and casual atmosphere of Fat Pasha and the food is always delicious. The brunch menu is simple, yet creative and portions are hearty. That’s why we keep coming back. I highly recommend it.

    Loved loved my experience at Fat Pasha, from service to atmosphere to food couldn’t have asked for anything else. Food is so delicious that I was so happy we went with a big group so we pretty much go try almost everything on the menu. My favourite was the falafel, Fatoush salad labaneh and the chicken schnitzel Thank you for a great night!

    The giant salatim with the pickles, dips and falafel was amazing...really we didn't need individual entrees after that. What an awesome appetizer.

    Food and server were both excellent. Would have been even better if we had friends along so we could sample more dishes. The only thing I wish is that you offered a few half portions, so a couple could get both the salatim and the chopped liver and still have room for a main course.

    Great place to dine for gourmet tasting middle eastern food. Unique and delectable flavours. We all loved the cauliflower appetizer best. Only wish the restaurant were bigger and the restroom stalls are rather small. Overall a great experience with wonderful staff and friendly service. We’ll be back :)

    Consistently delicious for ...nearly 6 years now!? Fat Pasha is one of the most highly regarded and yet most underrated restaurants on Toronto’s roster of fine gems. The food is always well seasoned and beautifully cooked with nuance and care. The drinks are delish, and it’s all worth every penny. Kieth - you are the heart of it all. I LOVE FAT PASHA. ❤️

    Falafel, shakshuka, a whole head of cauliflower and a mint tea. Is there anything that sounds more tantalizing than brunch at Fat Pasha? This Dupont Street establishment has a developed a great rep for serving up one of the city’s best Mediterranean dinners, and the brunch is on point too. The back patio is great for groups, and don’t forget to order a round of labneh for the table to start.

    Located on the Northeast corner of Dupont and Howland, Fat Pasha is a funky, family-friendly restaurant that serves what they refer to as “good Jew food.” Popular menu items include the Montreal steak-spiced flat iron (served with barbarian butter), the latke platter and the Babka bread pudding for dessert – although Instagrammers tend to swoon for the colourful and now-infamous cauliflower dish. Their back patio has the feel of a warm, secluded courtyard, and is stocked with gorgeous wooden benches and tables, making it the ideal place for an outdoor summer gathering.
