At Merivale’s latest George Street digs, nearly the entire menu is $20 and under. As the name suggests, falafel is the star of the show here. The original pita is stuffed with falafel, topped with parsley, cucumber, tomato, sumac onions and pickles, then doused with hummus and tahini. Other pitas are filled with za’atar cauliflower and fried eggplant (all $17). Jimmy Falafel’s menu pulls influence from countries all across the Middle East, including Egypt, Israel and Lebanon — so you’re getting something a little different here, too. Grab your pita from the takeaway kiosk for a quick bite, or enjoy in the lively 1970s-style back bar.
