Best Shawarma Toronto

The Best Shawarma in Toronto

The best shawarma in Toronto is downright worshipped by the hungry in this city. Who couldn't love Middle Eastern meat cooked in layers on a rotating cone shaved right onto rice, pita, fries, or sometimes even poutine or pizza, drizzled with garlic and hot sauce? 

Here is the best shawarma in Toronto.


Shawarma Empire

This small strip mall spot in Scarborough decked out in bright orange is the place to go to get authentic, flavourful shawarma that leaves chain versions in the dust. Using premium strip loin for their beef makes this shawarma taste closer to a steak dinner than any other.

They use thigh meat for the chicken shawarma at this North York restaurant, and you can add extra meat to your pita, laffa or dinner.

What's more Torontonian than jerk shawarma? Not much, and not much is more delicious than the jerk-marinated dark meat chicken that cooks on a spit here, used in delicious sandwiches, dinners, and their famous jerk poutine.

This Scarborough butcher shop turns out a great shawarma. Combos come with fries and a pop, and plates come with hummus, pita, rice or fries, salad and garlic sauce for a great deal, or order by the kilogram.
