Friends, I'm not going to beat around the bush with this: falafels. Are. Life.\nvia @falafelavenue\nThere is nothing on this earth like a hot, crispy, fresh falafel. And although, let's be real, there's no such thing as a bad falafel, all the best falafels have one thing in common: they're made with a whole lot of love and a whole lot of passion.\nAnd there's no spot in Montreal that makes better falafels quite as passionately as Falafel Avenue (2020 Boulevard Robert-Bourassa & 111 Mont-Royal Ave W).\nvia @falafelavenue\nRun by three Montreal brothers and their family, Falafel Avenue's dishes highlight the simplicity and versatility of their freshly made, tasty falafels.\nThe dishes stay true to the family's roots, but also add a unique twist to traditional fare. For example, they offer an ALL baked falafel sandwich (the BigFA), various falafels - flavours including one stuffed with mozzarella (which are to die for!), falafel pizzas, and a whole lot more - plus 5 different homemade tahini sauces, to compliment your tasty falafels!\nvia @falafelavenue\nBut the dishes themselves aren't the only amazing thing about Falafel Avenue. The way they prepare their falafels deserves a huge shoutout, too. In order to make these tasty morsels from scratch, every single step is made with a whole lot of love: chickpeas are soaked in water on the daily, freshly cut herbs and homemade spices are added in and then the falafels are ground in-house and fried (or baked!) right in front of you.\nvia @falafelavenue\nSo everything's as fresh as possible, made with love by the Falafel Avenue family, super healthy and tasty as heck. Plus, sidenote: the food here is totally vegetarian and vegan friendly!\nvia @falafelavenue\nIn fact, this super chill spot also has 100% vegan desserts - a recipe created by the family - so you and your veg friends can go right ahead and enjoy a delicious meal, from start to finish!\nvia @falafelavenue\nAnd although the prices are incredibly affordable, making this a top spot in the Plateau or Downtown core to grab lunch, dinner, and anything in between... Falafel Avenue still has one more surprise up its sleeve for you guys.\nvia @falafelavenue\nOn September 9, Falafel Avenue will be giving away falafels for free! All you need to do is show up to their Plateau location located at 111 Mont-Royal Ave W. and prepare to be delighted with some of their crispy, fresh, and delicious falafels... all for the world's best price (AKA, free. Zip. Zero. Nada).\nvia @falafelavenue\nI mean, what could be better than free food? Oh, right. Free food that's also made fresh every day, with passion and love, and that's also good for you. It's a win win, friends.\nvia @falafelavenue\nFor more information on Falafel Avenue, check out their website, Instagram, and Facebook page!
