I’ve been visiting Tabule for lunch since I started working in the Yonge and Eglinton area almost 5 years ago. They’re one of my favourite stops offering tasty and healthy lunch options at a great price. I usually try to arrive a couple of minutes before noon to beat the lunch time rush. There are two main dining areas that can easily seat large groups. The service is always professional but there have been a few meals when it’s on the slower side. Even after all my visits, I still enjoy watching the servers pour water from the special glass pitchers that creates a long stream of water to your glass.
Their lunch menu features a selection of salads and protein options served either in a pita or with a side of rice and salad. With each of the pita or grill plates, a bowl of Tabule’s lentil soup that has no cream or butter can be added to the meal for $3. I’ve tried most of the menu items and always return to the kefta grill plate. The charboiled lamb and beef meatballs are juicy and flavourful. I love the side salad, dressed simply with lemon juice and mint. The rice is seasoned and topped with fried onions. Altogether the plate is a satisfying lunch, especially if paired with a cup of Moroccan mint tea. I would also recommend the salmon, lamb chops, falafel and chicken salad.
Tabule has a second location at 810 Queen St East. Both restaurants feature a live belly dancing performance on Saturdays at 7:30pm and 9:30pm during the dinner service.
