About the restaurant
Simplicity, perfected
Starting with only the sweetest and highest quality sesame seeds from Humera, Ethiopia, our manufactory produces tahini and tahini-based goods, celebrating everything this mighty seed can do. We use tahini in all of our products and in most of the dishes we serve in our restaurant, in new and unexpected ways.

The ambience of this restaurant and the food were truly outstanding. Our server was friendly and attentive. We ate the shakshuka and the babaganoush with eggs, the shakshuka could use a little more spice and flavour to it, however the babaganoush was something that I will come back for. The hummus with pita and the side of fermented veggies just completed our meal beautifully. I would also recommend the halva - we tried almost all the flavours, however my favourites were the raspberry and vanilla. Would definitely recommend this place to everyone. :)

About the restaurant
Parallel brings together the experience and background of the three Ozery brothers, Alon, Guy, and Aharon, to create this unique space and product.
“We grew up in a home where sesame butter (tahini) was consumed regularly alongside flavourful Mediterranean cuisine. Parallel was born from our history and love for sesame butter. It’s part of our culture and upbringing, and we want to share that with you.
There are few ingredients that are as versatile, nutritious, and just as damn tasty as sesame butter. That’s why we decided to make it in all its forms: try it in our dressings, salads, dips, bowls, and our famous homemade halva, and seed what is possible.
The three of us share a passion for simple meals with fresh ingredients, bold flavors, and innovative techniques. That, along with our love for good coffee, art, music, and community, is what shapes the Parallel experience.”

About the restaurant
**We have freshened our look! Come visit us**
Tabule is a Middle-Eastern restaurant located in the heart of Toronto, Ontario. The flavors of Tabule are at once exotic and comforting. The dishes are prepared in such a way as to be friendly to diners who may have never experienced these flavor combinations before, which has made it a hit with tourists and a favorite spot for locals. The husband and wife team of Chef Rony Goraichy and Diana Sideris work hard using fresh, quality ingredients and their broad cultural knowledge to create dishes that are unique and exciting.

Some of Tabula's dishes, like the Ma'anek which is an incredibly savory Lebanese spicy beef sausage rolled with Middle Eastern spices and pine nuts

The new decor is fresh and soothing. The staff were excellent and the food delicious. I have a lot of food sensitivities, and they were great about helping me avoid anything that would be a problem. There was nothing in the gluten free flat bread that I could not eat. That was such a welcome treat that I placed an order for take-out so I could enjoy it at home! Great experience. The only down side was that the music was a bit loud.

Great food. Pricey. Short rib kebabs incredibly tender and flavourful. Pide are done in wood fired oven and are very tasty.
