    Man, I'm a retard. I thought the other part of the plate was the falafels.
    I apologize for wasting everyone's time with my posts lol.

    Edit: So are those "meatballs"?[/QUOTE]

    No, they're falafels.
    Falafel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Yes!!! The problem I have is that baba ghanoush is pretty heavy stuff so I can't eat a lot of it. What I usually do is have them give me half-hummus / half-baba ghanoush, then rice with falafels and pita bread. They have a good greek salad there, too.

    I guess it's the way they serve it. Lots of olive oil. I soak it up sometimes. Often it's not as oily either.

    haha yes! I had falafels the other day and they were way too soft :( You need that perfect balance of soft and crunchy.

    Don't worry, I've tried it from all over the continent and Vancouver really does have the best.

    This is true. Olive and fish oils are probably the best fats you can get.

    it's not off course (per se).

    But why soaking hummus in oil? It's already fat enough (from the beans). Oil is fat and there's no need to consume that much in a meal. That's why I said it's unhealthy.

    One of the ingredients of hummus is olive oil. I think they do put too much oil in it sometimes though.

    Yep, I know. But shit, no need to make an oil pit... that's way too much and disgusting IMHO.

    At first I tought it might be lemon juice. But the texture was too oily.

    I ate there Thursday and Friday. I could eat there again today but I think I'm sticking to my "1 week without falafels" plan.

    Today I had:
    Falafels
    Hummus
    Tabbouleh
    Plain iced tea
    Red chili sauce

    You had cabbage salad and hummus?

    It was extra good today. I think the ingredients are freshest on Tuesdays because this place is closed on Monday.

    Edit: Tweak3D has become a blog to discuss our lunches apparently.

    Haha, if we're talking lunches...

    I had a chicken pesto with whole wheat farfalle. A bit tangy, and it made me pretty gassy later on :(

    I really don't like tabouleh to be honest. Must be the raw tomatoes.

    We just ate there again today. I don't know if I can keep doing this. That's 4 times in the 7 days.
