My gf and I took a detour on our way to pick up a few things for a bbq. I wanted a donair but after a lengthy drive down East Hastings I was nerved that I wouldn't find one, then low and behold, I spotted this place.
There are a few occupied small tables outside this ultra small restaurant, and upon entering I took my time to decide. While waiting, I gazed over the typical cafe type decor. Clean but ordinary, and not larger group friendly. At first glance the lone staff reminded me of "The Soup Nazi", a gruff, stone-faced facial expression that made me second guess my choice for a brief moment; turns out he's one friendly guy. As the only staff present however, I spent roughly 15 minutes from entering to exiting as I waited while he was preparing another person's order. I probably would pass on coming here if you're in a hurry.
I ordered the Lebanese lamb donair, which included all the standard ingredients including hummus and tabouleh. The microwaved pita was a touch over-nuked, giving it a somewhat chewy texture but otherwise it was one tasty snack while the strips of lamb were tender and well seasoned. Good portion to boot as I ordered the small.
Good grub, irregardless if this was the only eatery of its type in the area.
It's not easy to find good healthy food for lunch nowadays. These wraps are quite filling with lots of veggies and the taste is great. A small is actually large enough to make a grown man full. Great grab and go food. I tried the beef and lamb, they are both great. I would recommend my friends to try them out.
