Shawarma Empire serves what is possibly Scarborough's best option for falafel and shawarma. They are located in a Middle Eastern stretch of Lawrence Avenue's east end, on the Scarberian side of the Scarborough/North York border.
Their popularity is reflected in how busy the modestly-sized restaurant can get - especially around meal times. Luckily, the staff is clearly used to this and knows how to work quickly and efficiently under pressure.
The sandwiches aren't the largest around (2 falafel balls per pita), but they are made from all freshly-prepared ingredients and served cleanly stuffed into round pita pockets that are capped with an extra bit of pita to allow for easier transportation.
The smaller size is compensated for by the fact that deals are available if you're grabbing more than one. In fact, "one falafel" and "one shawarma" aren't even options on the menu, with the 2-for-1 deal being the default. 4 falafels and 2 drinks (AKA dinner for two) came to $14.
If you like it spicy, make sure to ask them to really load on the hot sauce - although the curry sauce packs a lot of peppery flavour, it doesn't bring much heat with it.
