Babos Donerpoint

  • 6

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.

  1. 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.

        Then there you go :)

    2. 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.
