Kingston Eats: Mr. Donair

Donair is similar to doner kebab. Filling includes beef made from rotating roast and a sweet garlic sauce instead of tzatziki. While it most likely came from Greece, Turkey, or Lebanon, the donair has achieved ubiquity in Halifax, starting in the 1970s.  Therefore it is the Canadian adaptation of doner kebab.  I haven’t had many donairs in my life; I think Mr. Donair serves good donair.  I believe the father of a classmate and acquaintance of mine owns the shop, so I have faith in the quality here.  The pita bread is chewy but not soggy, and they are very generous in the fillings.  There is an ample amount of beef donair and they try to stuff every single toppings you ask for in the wrap.  You will be full by the last couple bites.  I also find their in-house made garlic hot sauce very addictive.

Poutine topped with donair
Toppings: Tomatoes, onions, lettuce
Sauces: Garlic, Hot and Tzatziki
The fries were from frozen packages.  They were nicely seasoned and isn’t too salty.  There was just enough gravy to cover the fries and melt the cheese without drowning the fries.  You get a lot for what you pay for.  It was a filling meal without feeling grossly heavy.
