In Toronto At Fat Pasha

 This weekend, we celebrate our Canadian Thanksgiving. It's a time to give thanks and for families to gather around the dining table to share our blessings with a feast of  turkey, mashed potatoes and vegetables, finished by either a pecan or apple pie. It's a very filling event second to Christmas. For my family, this time, we visited Fat Pasha in downtown Toronto to learn more about Jewish food. This weekend, we are also travelling for the first time to Israel to tour the Holy Land at Jerusalem. At Fat Pasha, we discovered and tasted Jewish food which offered a variety of dishes from vegetarian to roast chicken, lamb shawarma, steak and lots of choices for hummus and falafel. The service in the restaurant is excellent with our waiter who is so friendly and knowledgeable about their menu and their talented bar mixologist who created wonderful drinks. Now, I have to remember the names of the food so when I get to Israel, I will be able to order them over there and know exactly what to eat. 
We ordered French Rose and lemon and ginger iced tea freshly mixed by the bar mixologist. 
This is called a Salatim with 7 mini dishes of salads which are spread on the pita bread. There is a dish of tomatoes, chopped eggplant and tahina, beetroot relish and dukkah, rapini tabuleh among others. 
We ordered their classic falafel and Shikshukit, made of hummus with lamb kofta with seared onion. 
Their falafel is the best I have ever tasted. 
The outer shell is crunchy while inside is made of chick peas with parsley. 
Fat Pasha's speciality dish is their roast cauliflower made with tahini, skhug, topped with pine nuts, pomegranate and halloumi.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:18
