La Panthère Verte

2153, rue MacKay, Montréal, QC H3G 2J2

Panthère Verte is well known for having some of the best comfort-style vegan food in town. They also offer some of the best falafel pitas you’ll find in the city. They are healthy, without giving up any of the taste. Try the traditional — the sauerkraut is delicious — or the fusion falafel with sumac and yogi sauce. Be sure to bring your appetite, as the portions here are fairly big.

Le Petit Alep

191, rue Jean-Talon E, Montréal, QC H2R 1S8

The little Armenian joint is sure to send your taste buds one a real trip. It shares a kitchen with L’Alep, a renowned restaurant in the area and has been around for the past 20 years. You won’t soon forget the mix of herbs and spices in their falafels, available as a platter or as a grilled pita. This restaurant is more of a bistro, so enjoy with a glass of wine from their extensive list.

Restaurant Nilufar

1923, rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H3H 1M3

If you want good bang for your buck, without sacrificing taste, then head over to Restaurant Nilufar on Sainte-Catherine near Concordia. They offer simple and classic Middle Eastern fare, with some of the best falafels in the city. The décor of this joint is unassuming, but you’ll forget about it as soon as you take a bite of their delicious falafels. Best part? They offer a trio of a falafel sandwich, soup and drink for only two dollars.

Boucherie Abu Elias

733, boul de la cote-Vertu, Saint-Laurent, QC H4L 1Y3

This small gem is a little outside the downtown core, but definitely worth the trip. Boucherie Abu Elias is a Lebanese butcher, located on Cote-Vertu in Ville St-Laurent — and the falafels are always fresh. The crispy exterior with the moist, chewy interior is sure to make your mouth water. While you’re there, pick up a few items to take home as they sell many other traditional Lebanese products.
