306 King Street West
A & I had plans to Nina's Bistro & Wine Bar. However, as we were stepping in to the restaurant, they were closing down for the night. Something about the chefs having to work a banquet. So I suggested walking over to La Luna.
To start, I ordered the Fattoush salad. I just can't resist crunchy fried pitas. The waitress specified that the price on the menu was for a large and I could get a smaller one ($5.31), which was big enough for me! I really liked my salad, especially the slightly out-of-place cauliflowers. I really like raw cauliflowers. A ordered the Vegetarian Dish, which also came with a salad. He picked the Tahina Salad, which had a tahini dressing.

The Vegetarian Dish included 2 falafels, hummus, fried cauliflowers, different grilled vegetables and a pita to scoop everything up. It was quite a large plate and looked appetizing.

I decided to have something other than my usual chicken pitas, and ordered the Kafta sandwich ($5.31). Kafta consists of ground meat patties, in this case, skewers of ground beef. The sandwich had a tahini sauce and a pickle (that I forgot to ask to exclude!).
Overall, I like La Luna. However, if I had to pick my favourite pita sandwich in these parts, Montfort would win because of their awesome sauces!
