So two co-workers and I were heading over to check out Mona’s Pizza & Donair when I spotted Sunbake Pita Bakery on the way. I remembered hearing good things about Sunbake and knew that they are the pita kings in Edmonton so I convinced my co-workers to check out this place instead. We went on a Tuesday for lunch and the place was bustling the whole time that we were there.
All you need to know is order at the counter once you’ve made your decision. Lots of interesting choices to choose from – lebanese mini pies (pizzas if you will), shawarma, roasted nuts, baklava, fatayers and of course, their infamous pitas (which people were buying in bulk). The nuts looked so fresh and delicious but couldn’t convince my co-workers to get some. Next time!
Chicken shawarma ($8.99 for large)
Regular was good enough for my one co-worker and my other co-worker and I shared the large (asked for it to be cut in half). The first bites were delicious as you can really taste the garlic and toasting the pita gives it a nice slight crunch to it. A couple pickled purple turnips bring together the flavour. Randomly, I spotted a bottle of Sriracha hot sauce which went surprisingly well with the shawarma. Who woulda thunk? Only downside was near the end, sandwich got really salty.
Sausage and cheese pie ($3.99)
This was SO good and massive for $4. You get four pieces total and a very generous portion of meat on your pie. I saw a few little kids order this and they were struggling to finish it. Tasty, perfect pizza crunch to it but beware, it is greasy!
Can’t wait to go back and try the rest of their menu and roasted nuts. Did I mention lunch split between two of us cost $6.50 each?? Ridiculous!
