Mount Lebanon Deli
There’s falafel – and then there’s Mount Lebanon Deli falafel. The family-owned continental delicatessen and grocer, run by Jason Basmadji, is a hot spot for top-notch Middle Eastern food on the go. The deli features a tasty selection of meats, cheeses, house-made dips, olives by the tub, meat and cheese-filled Turkish pide bread alongside two isles full of international groceries, bulk spices and sweets. Famous for falafel, you’ll find lunchtime particularly busy here as the locals line up for the well-known falafel wrap – crunchy hot falafel, hummus, tahini, tabouli, fresh lettuce and chilli. Grab a fresh-made kibbi (burghul and mince) while you’re there, and finish with a baklava and a couple of kourabiedes to go.
