After beach v-ball, we wanted something quick and easy for dinner. It’s been awhile since we’ve had a donair so decided to give Döner Kebab a try. It’s a few doors down from Rain or Shine Ice Cream.
We dropped in on a Thursday evening (around 9:00pm). Service is quick and food comes out within minutes of ordering. Most people were grabbing takeout (we were the only ones that dined in). The worker asks if you want spicy and what toppings you want in your donair.
The menu is short and sweet with 5 donair and 13 plate options.
They also have four types of salad, samosa, dolmas and and baklava ($2.67 each).
Don’t see lamb shank too often.
Lamb shank was quite tender and slow cooked so it fell off the bone. Sauce was also tasty and perfect to soak up with the rice.
A bit strange that you don’t get a pita to go with the hummus. Salads were refreshing; I enjoyed the pasta over the Greek.
Falafel donair ($7.67)
You can see the mini deep fryer they use to cook the falafels. We went with medium spicy (only results in a slight kick). The donair was pressed/grilled but oddly didn’t have the slightest crunch or bite to it. Same with the falafels; no texture and so salty. Ruined it for me.
Didn’t love the donair. Not running back anytime soon but if I were to come back, I’d stick with their platters instead.
