The Best Shawarma in Toronto
The best shawarma in Toronto is a product of patience - meat is built on a spit, then marinated at length and finally slowly roasted as juices drip down to coat and caramelize its exterior. Whether you get your shawarma piled into a platter or wrapped up into a sandwich is your call, but of course it's the meat that makes this dish, no matter how many pickled turnips or squirts of garlic sauce are applied to accentuate it.
Here are the best restaurants for shawarma in Toronto.
The local chain of Middle Eastern eateries continues to thrive, as locations pop up around the GTA. Enjoy sit-down family-style food or express takeout that caters to the lunch crowd. Massive laffa wraps stuffed with chicken shawarma will set you back $9, while the menu also features boxed entrees ($14) and apps like shawarma over hummus ($9).
Another chain hailing from Thornhill, Sofra Grill operates three locations, including its newest outpost on Spadina in Forest Hill. The sit-down restaurants serve chicken shawarma as entrees ($16) with salad and a starch, while the best value can be had in sandwich form - wrapped in laffa ($9) or packed into a pita ($8).
