I didn’t realize how GOOD the Ottawa Shawarma scene was until I tried to get Shawarma in another city. Let me tell you, “you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone” has never resonated with me more.
Growing up in Ottawa, Shawarma has been a staple in my diet for many years. There’s something so warm, comforting and delicious about the spices, the potatoes and don’t even get me started on the garlic sauce! It’s because of my overwhelming love for this dish that we’ve created a different- but still delicious- play on an Ottawa classic. It’s light and fresh, perfect for our (brief) summer months, while still holding true to all of the Shawarma flavours you love.
