Falafal town on granville and nelson? I use to go their all the time and then stopped when I started to gain some weight. That guy is cool. He employs homeless people, whenever he can too. The falafal mix chicken was awesome.

Now I just do pita pit after work and do bare min.

^ yea granville and nelson, the guy working is nice but kinda weird, i used to be a fairly regular customer there and he acted like he knew me well and knew what i wanted, then i didnt go for like 2 months and when i came back he still acted like he knew me but when i told him what i wanted, and what i always got before he was like "so your new to donairs eh?" lol

I think MajinHurricane is right. When I was in Europe (Spain, England, France, Germany, Czech Republic, and Austria) the terms donair, doner, kebap, and shwarma were all used very loosely and in the end, you get the same product.

I think I'll head over to London for some shwarma next weekend.

Little index

gyro/pita = Greek
Schwarma = Arab
Donair = Turkish

personally I'd love some of this

I find that donair meat is processed, like chinese fish ball type meat.

Shawarma meat (at least the place that I go to) isn't so processed, you still get the texture of the fibers of the meat (not ground up meat). Not sure if it's the same as all places.

Shawarma meat is just chicken breast with animal fat on it.

gyro meat is disgusting.

I wish they would have a place that just used good old fashion souvlaki.

go to falfafell town on Granvile and talk to the guy, tell him u want plate but all in a pita instead of on a plate, thats what I used to get and he'd throw fries in it etc. soooo good

or even just talk to him about the fry thing and im sure he will understand the guy is like straight up donair lol

I google mapped "Donair Affair" in Surrey and it didn't come up with any hits actually in Surrey. Where is it?
