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.

    Vibrant atmosphere and despite being busy we could easily hear the conversation without any difficulty. Family style with delicious Mezza platter roasted eggplant was especially good and we shared the Cauliflower and lamb which were tasty . We all enjoyed the meal.

    Nice space! Staff were nothing impressive, but nothing terrible either. Cauliflower was bland and tasted steamed and not roasted. Disappointed that we weren't able to order falafel. The squash dish was interesting but should be listed as a dessert.

    All around excellent. It was nice to go a bit out of the downtown core for once but still go to a place that's cool, trendy, with excellent food. The meal was surprisingly filling, and I love how all the dishes are shareable. Highly recommend and will be returning possibly with more friends next time.

    Fat Pasha is a fun and lively restaurant. The service was excellent. The food was very good. I gave the food 4 stars, because I reserve 5 stars for the very top tier restaurants that I have fined in over the years.

    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.
