Every time we come to Ottawa we make sure to stop here.
It's a few minutes drive from downtown on Rideau. We always get our food to go since the area seems a bit sketchy, so you should have a car if coming here.
Portions are HUGE!! One plate can easily feed 2-3 people. We ordered 2 plates; one chicken shawarma and one mix (½chicken, ½beef). Plates come with your choice of meat, potatoes, rice, salad, hummus, some pickled vegetables and a BAG of pita. Oh, and can't forget the amazing garlic sauce! Make sure you have a small toothbrush handy if you're meeting someone after eating here ;)
The 2 plates were shared amongst 2 adults and 3 boys (one of which eats more like an adult). Let me just tell you we were stuffed to the point of not being able to breathe after finishing our food. So be warned, DO NOT TRY TO EAT ONE PLATE ALONE!!
The meat is so tender and flavorful and not at all fatty like some other shawarma places. Everything is awesome, and you are sure not to be disappointed.
Every trip to Ottawa deserves a stop here ☺
