Nuba

Middle Eastern in Gastown & Chinatown

Tucked under the landmark Dominion Building, this Lebanese restaurant attracts budget noshers and cool hipsters in equal measure. If you're not sure what to go for, split some tasty, surprisingly filling meze dishes, including excellent hummus and falafel, or just dive straight into a shareable La Feast for two ($38) that covers all the bases (including the inevitable doggie-bag takeout).

There are plenty of vegetarian options here as well as a homey, fresh-made feel to the food. Consider taking a photo of the building on your way out: the copper-topped edifice is among the most iconic old buildings in the city and was once one of the tallest.
