Best Sharwma in the GTA
I am looking for a few good sharwma places in and around the city. What I am looking for is good without having to slop it with all the toppings (i.e. extra sauces/hot) since normally I am on the go and when I have one.
Nothing I have had so far compares to the ones I first tried when I was in Los Angeles at Zankou's chicken -- down there they do not use hot sauce. I am still looking for a westend, Mississauga location to buy Bastarmia. Now I get it on Lawrence in Scarbourough but am looking for something a tad closer or on the way home to the Hammer from work.
try Ameer Family Restaurant - 2034 Lawrence Ave E...it is just after the Tim Horton's
at Warden and Lawrence....the sharwma is not MESSY like all the other ones out there .Enjoy......
Johnny's Shawarma at Kennedy/Ellesmere (next to Dairy Queen) is great if you are looking for Scarb suggestions...
For me it's Shawarma Empire at 1823 Lawrence E just east of Pharmacy. I've tried many of the others on Lawrence, but SE excels at several things:
-They're 100% consistent. My shawarma tastes the same each and every time I order it. No good days/bad days issues like the others.
- They're clean. I would eat off of their floor. Okay, maybe not, but you get my point.
- The couple who run the place are very pleasant to deal with whether you're a shawarma expert or a first-timer.
