Beirut Express literally opened within the last week, and I don’t know how long it will stay open. I really shouldn’t have ate there tonight, especially after eating at Al-Sultan yesterday. A friend at work was saying he tried something at Beirut Express yesterday, so I thought I would give it a go. It was an unfortunate experience, and alas, 10 dollars I will never get back.
I’m not very experienced with falafel, but I know enough that this falafel from Beirut Express was borderline inedible. Anything with ‘Express’ usually translates to ‘ in rushing, we forget about quality and consistency’. The falafel wrap I tried was gross and left my stomach in knots. The three dark balls of chickpea flour and bits and pieces were dry and very salty. It had almost a powdery texture, and really put me off. The wrap was basically pita bread, and disintegrated within minutes, not exactly something you want to happen when trying to eat a wrap.The falafel tasted old and dried out, not a very pleasant experience. I’m struggling to find anything positive to say about Beirut Express. It’s clean and new inside?
It’s a shame, but I would avoid eating here, save your money and get better bread and ingredients at Al-Sultan down on Douglas St.
