Dig into the best donairs in Halifax

Donairs, which are either Turkish or Greek in origin, are a firmly established part of Halifax's culture, and they offer a convenient and filling meal or late-night snack. They're often filled with vertical rotisserie-cooked meat and served in a flatbread, accompanied by fresh vegetables and sauce. Here are the top spots to fulfill your donair cravings.

King of Donair

6420 Quinpool Rd, Halifax, NS B3L 1A8

In 1973, King of Donair was the first establishment to introduce this tasty delight to Canada. Now open in six locations throughout Halifax and New Brunswick, they still serve their original secret recipe and prepare fresh dough daily. King of Donair is known for its traditional donairs, but it also offers donair-style pizzas and subs. If you can't get enough of the tender donair meat, sample a donair poutine or a couple of donair egg rolls. Order online if you don't feel like leaving the couch.

5246 Blowers St, Halifax, NS B3J 1J7

Johnny K's pays homage to one of the original co-inventors who brought Halifax his own take on traditional donairs. What was once predominantly lamb, with a yogurt-based sauce, was changed to meet the local preference of Haligonians – spicy beef with a sweet sauce. Continuing to serve this traditional recipe, Johnny K's sources all ingredients locally and offers donairs at a fair price. It serves beef, chicken and vegetarian options – there's a donair for everyone.
