Yaaaaas, it’s so nice having someone that knows all the St. Albert hotspots. My co-worker and I went to Simply Donair on a Friday and got there just before the lunch rush. The place is simple and straightforward – order at the counter and watch the magic happen.
I know Edmonton is overflowing with an abundance of donair and schwarma spots but Simply Donair is definitely worth a try. Especially if you’re one of those people that like massive quantities (aka. generous portions here).
You get a small donair (choice of beef, chicken, mix, donair poutine or falafel), small fries and drink (pop, juice or water). The “small” is easily the size of a regular sized donair. What I really liked about Simply’s donairs is that they shave the meat off and then grill it on top of the stovetop. Gives it a slight char flavour. As well, the sweet sauce was goooood. Just be prepared to get messy.
Also, a nice touch was how you can customize what you want in your donair. I added mushrooms and banana peppers along with the usual tomatoes, shredded lettuce and onion. Fast, cheap, and fresh, what else do you want in a donair shop?
