If you like food with diverse flavours and a really low price tag then Dr. Laffa is the place for you!

I was first introduced to the magic of Dr. Laffa about 2 years ago by Vicky (aka @momwhoruns on Twitter) after she held a tweetup at their original location. The original location was run out of a loading dock and served up MASSIVE portions of what I was told was a fusion of Iraqi and Israeli cuisines. I ordered the sabich on laffa on my first visit and still remember the awesome taste locked within to this day.

A laffa is basically a flat bread similar to naan that is cooked in an oven called a taboon. The dough is slapped against the walls inside the taboon and when ready is used to make some delicious sandwiches.

The sabich sandwich is an eggplant sandwich that currently sells for $5.99 at one of Dr. Laffa’s now 2 locations. Not long ago, Dr. Laffa opened a new location at Bathurst and Lawrence, which is much easier to get to for those of us living in the city. The sabich sandwich consists of fried eggplant and boiled egg and you can add a variety of toppings including: pickles, corn, lettuce, hummus and much more. I personally like my sandwich fully loaded. I have tried a few different sandwiches on the Dr. Laffa menu (chicken shawarma and falafel) but my favourite for the taste and value is always the sabich. These sandwiches are so massive that they often have a tough time folding them together and can easily be shared between 2 people.

When I last visited Dr. Laffa’s more northern location near Dufferin & Steeles (which has since moved across the street from the loading dock) I noticed people were ordering a wide variety of dishes. Everything looked amazing but I still need to go back for another visit so just consider this review about their sandwiches.

For $5.99 you wont find a sandwich with better value anywhere in the city. I definitely recommend giving Dr. Laffa a try.
