Taza Falafel House doesn’t look remarkable from the outside, and those who don’t know Middle Eastern food might never think to approach it. But once you’re in, you’re IN. I gave it 800 thumbs up for the items on the menu I had (plus the extras I ended up ordering for dinner that night because I couldn’t get enough).
I ordered three enormous meals for $18 that were just as good cold and reheated as they were fresh from the grill. We had a falafel and tzatziki pita and a chicken wrap. They also accommodated a request for a falafel burger on a grilled bun, which turned out to be what could be the best sandwich I’ve had in years.
Normally I avoid onions at all costs, but on these meals, the red onions mixed with the home made tzatziki, paired with the home made falafel (obviously done lightly in a high quality oil) was to die for. The food also passed the husband test, despite being a “meat-and-potatoes-only-what’s-that-green-stuff-on-my-plate” guy.
Google ranks the restaurant at a 4.7 stars out of 5, which I would say is accurate. It only loses the .3 from the slightly less-than-glittery décor. You’ll barely notice it once you walk in and experience the smell of deliciousness!
You can find Taza Falafel House at 344 Sixth Street, New Westminster, beside 7-11.
