It’s been ages since I’ve been to Castle Bake. We decided to check out their second location, aptly named Castle Bake 2. It’s located in a random north side plaza; Happy Palace Restaurant is next door.
Signs out front advertising all the types of food they have available.
Look for the Capital Centre rotating sign.
We dropped in on a Wednesday afternoon (around 1:00pm) and the place was dead. Only one other couple was eating/smoking shisha. The inside is huge with an endless amount of booths and tables. Our server was a friendly guy who cracked a few jokes with us.
The menu is split into appetizers, salad, baked pita pies, breakfast & lunch, platters, sandwiches, pastas, desserts, drinks, shisha and pizza.
The baked pita pies are a must!
Simple and satisfying. Love my zaatar pita pies.
Spinach & cheese ($4.50)
The spinach is different; sour but pairs well with the cheese.
Saj chicken tawook ($9.95)
We tried the saj version (instead of the normal pita). Love how they lightly crisp the sandwich; gives it a great texture.
Chicken was tender and flavourful inside. Perfect portion to share.
The platter came with a basket of fresh pitas bites, cubed tomatoes and an assortment of pickled vegetables.
The 6 falafels came straight from the deep fryer but were a bit bland.
Castle Bake 2 is just as solid as the original spot. If you find yourself in this area, definitely worth a visit.
