Babos Donerpoint

I've been wanting to try it for a while so I went today for lunch. I had the beef donair. It was huge but the flavour was just okay. The think I really didn't like was the sweet sauce they put on it. Not a fan. I'll stick with King Falafel, best shawarma in town.

    I'm surprised you were lukewarm on it.

    I think Babos is absolutely incredible. But to each their own right : ) At least you got there.

      I should qualify my comments. I thought it was good, but the sweet sauce was a disappointing. After the first bite, the sweetness of the sauce was all I could think about. So that's what I found disappointing. I agree, however, that the meat was well-seasoned, carmelized and tasty. I'll go back and order one without the sweet sauce.

      King Falafel on Eglinton?? The place with the awesome falafels but no chicken shawarma? (Only veal)

      Their falafels are friggin ridiculous... too good

        I agree with Magic and think this palce is by far, the freshest, most flavorful schwarma/gyros/donair product in the city. As well the place and food hygene is impeccable.

          Ya not to turn this into a Babos vs. King Falafel thing - because you can't, they are not the same thing at all - I think Babos is quite easily the best donair I've had in Toronto. Maybe anywhere. Very surprised anyone would not love it! So perfectly juicy, carmelized, and seasoned! Brilliant.
