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 Fat Pasha. Great service, delicious food. We especially loved the red shakshuka, appetizer platter and cinnamon/chocolate/orange babka. Yum!

    The green shakshuka was less green than I thought it would be. I assumed it was mostly spinach and less cream.

    Arrived for a 10pm reservation and were promptly told that the kitchen was about to close. Though the food was good, we felt very rushed and felt that we were an inconvenience to the staff. Not happy with our time there.

    I met a friend for brunch at Fat Pasha and the experience was, as usual, perfect. We shared the Roasted Cauliflower and the Red Shakshuka. Both were delicious, fresh and flavourful. The service is friendly, attentive, but not obtrusive. We felt unrushed and lingered for awhile after our meal. As to the atmosphere, the vibe is incredibly warm, cozy, and comforting, which is conducive to enjoying a fine meal with a friend.

    Always a delicious meal at Fat Pasha! The service was excellent and the atmosphere was fun and lively, but not too loud. We could all hear ourselves. It was a lovely night out with 3 generations for our Family Day weekend dinner.

    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.
