Edmonton's Amazing Shawarma.

Recently I moved to Edmonton and was overwhelmed with all the Donair and Shawarma places. It seems like you find at least one on every major intersection. Travelling through the Northwest I came across Sun Bake Pita Bakery. Named after a famous Lebanese Bakery I thought I'd try it out.

All of the pies(minus the Fatayer) on the menu are made in front of your eyes and freshly baked. Coming from Calgary I'm used to Pita Bakeries reheating zaatar and meat pies. To eat one fresh is a real treat. They also serve Shawarma wrapped in Baladi or Saj bread which is much thinner than tradional pita but tastes better. Unfortunatly the chicken was still cooking. I would have to say this is by far the best Lebanese food I've had here in Edmonton and I'll definatly be back.

Cheers!
