I absolutely love the Mid East Food Centre! As a longtime vegetarian, I have sampled many a falafel in this fine city and I have found the falafel at Mid East to be by far the best in town. They are wonderfully crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Mid East has also completely perfected their hummus recipe and it is simply delicious. I am more of a fan of the restaurant portion of Mid... more

I love red lentil Dahl and Pakoras and Kheer. I make these things at home, and thank goodness I have an authentic Mid East grocery where I can get the ingredients I need. They have every spice one needs to make exotic mid east dishes. Have many food intolerances I have discovered Middle Eastern cuisine seems most varied and delicious without allergy concern

My experiences with the Mid East Food Centre are somewhat limited because I have yet to actually dine there, but trust me when I say it's high on my list of things to try.

I live in the North End and walk by the MEFC on a regular basis and I've been known to pop in for a snack or a recipe requirement in the grocery section and have yet to be disappointed. There are beans and lentils and rice... more

Like many international groceries the shop is unfocused and has a little bit of everything. The staff is really friend and I'm sure would answer your questions. I got one of each of the filled cookies; pistachio and walnut were the best. Got the fresh dates too, only $4 a box.

I really enjoyed our stop in here while biking the switch event in Halifax with my wife. I tried the pastrys (not sure of the name) but it was the only pastry they had so hard to miss. They were short bread cookies stuffed with different fillings like dates etc... Really good. I also got a jar of pickled eggplant interesting not sure what to do with it? Might go well on a veggie hotdog or... more

While some Haligonians swear by Pizza Corner, the four great food destinations surrounding North and Agricola (FRED.food, Ace Burger Co, Café Aroma Latino, Mid East Food Centre) make up my top pick of the city's culinary corners.

My Lebanese lunch here today finally checked off the last of these four spots with as much success as I've had on any other side of the streets. It may not look like... more

This is my go-to place for my items whenever I want to prepare a Middle Eastern feast. It is my favourite Middle Eastern Grocery store because it reminds me of home and the owners are SUPER awesome and nice!

I went today and bought a thing of Labneh, pita bread and a bag of Manoosh for only $11. This will last me 3 days! I am so excited for some homey food!

I love this place! They do stock most things you want if you look carefully. The takeout counter is delicious. The family's super nice!

Drawbacks? They're usually out of at least one thing I want... tzatziki, pita, homemade stuff. Sells out every day because it's so good, y'know?

I usually don't find what I'm looking for in this place but I end up buying a lot of cool stuff anyway!

I think it is the best place to buy feta cheese if your consumption is high because it is very cheap, fresh and quite delicious. Their olive and pickles collections aren't too bad either. You can even buy a hookah there!

Just to go there and watch the stuff is kinda cool! It sucks that they... more

This is a great place to buy large containers of olive oil, olives, bags of rice and other mid-eastern food. The small restaurant attached to it is well worth the effort to get to at lunch. You get large plates of food for under $10, and on Wednesday they have a two-for-one falafel day.

Friendly service, a great selection of Middle Eastern ingredients, and great lamb shawarma pitas? Count me in. A friend and I were headed to Cafe Aroma Latino for lunch yesterday forgetting it was closed Mondays, so we headed across the street and their lunch counter was really impressive. The food was delicious, served quickly, and reasonably priced. I'll be back to try more of their options -... more

This place is the Mid-East equivalent to the Italian Market.
Part grocer, part pret-a-manger - it's an excellent source of all things middle east.

Food to go: So I work right around the corner from this spot, so I frequent it often.
My recos: ANY of their fatayers - best in the city (they come from the Golden Bakery in Bedford). If you like beef, the mufarakah (sp?!?) is excellent (spicy with... more

"Freshest Pita in Town!" Mid-East should hang a sign in the window. With the Fancy Lebanese pita bread factory next door, the pita bread is so soft you almost want to curl up with it. Of course, they also sell tasty homemade hummus and labaneh to eat with it.

If you like to cook, you'll find all the supplies you need in what could be the best selection of Middle Eastern ingredients in town.... more

Mid East is an eclectic family run business, which first opened shop in the early 70s.

From dips like babaganouge to hummus, and delicacies galore, like my favorite, the cheesy and rich fatayer bi kheshk, this shop has so many offerings when it comes to spicing up your diet. Stuffed grape leaves and garlic sauce are a must, not to mention any of their tasty, flaky pastries!

Their grocery... more

3 things i love about this place:
1-the large array of groceries
2-the fresh and inexpesive giant pitas
3-the deli section for delicious lunches (especially the eggplant dish)

Mid East Food Center/Fancy Lebanese Bakery. The reason both of these are listed is because it is two stores in one.

One part is all the groceries and the other is a area with a few tables for eating. The menu looked very good and there were people eating in as well as take out. You can also buy various foods from the display, all look good. Hummus, Tabouli, Greek Salad, Samosa etc. (pict of... more

I love cooking ethnic foods and so it's a joy to find everything Middle Eastern and then some in one shop. There is everything from fresh and ready made baklava ( at least a half dozen varieties) to the rose water, filo sheets and nuts to make your own.

On the savory side there are barrels and barrels of olives, grape leaves (to make your own stuffed dolmata), stuffed peppers and other... more

This is an amazing resource if you like to cook, or eat for that matter - many things here that I haven't been able to find in other spots. It's the sort of place that, although small, I can (and did) spend 20 minutes exploring after wandering in off the street out of curiosity. Big props for the bulk spice section, buckets 'o' self-serve olives, giant canisters of cooking oils and excellent... more

Great middle Eastern food, eat in or take out. A great selection of groceries for your middle Eastern needs. They have the best tabouli that I've eaten anywhere in the Metro area. And that's goin' some.
