Ray’s Falafel, Scotia Square, 492-0233
Ray’s in Scotia Square was almost overtaken by Tarek’s last year, but widened the margin considerably for a convincing falafel victory this time around. Ray’s Falafel, according to a vegetarian customer sitting in the food court, has “the only falafel that tastes like anything besides hay. It’s the same every time I order it, and I’ve been eating it for a long time. And there’s no onions.” The great falafel combined with friendly counter service makes Ray’s your number one chickpea pick.
