Reason #101.5 of '101 Reasons Why I Heart Edmonton'

The Donairs

By Emil Tiedemann

There was just no way I could come up with a list of all the reasons why I heart Edmonton and leave off the donair. Sorry, not sorry. Those slivers of heavily-spiced ground beef swarmed with sweet sauce and gooey cheese, cradled by a warm and often chewy Lebanese-style pita are irresistable to many - perhaps most - Edmontonians.

Unfortunately for the rest of Canada, Edmonton is one of the few places outside of the East Coast where you can find these savoury delectables in abundance. Although they are the official food of Halifax, the donair has made Edmonton its second home, and we’re more than grateful to welcome them with open arms and mouths. 

If you don’t believe me, go to any of the dozens of donair shops around the city and try one for yourself. A warning though: they are highly addictive! #yegdonair
