In my opinion, the best shawarma in Ontario can only be found in Ottawa and now I know where to find the best shawarma in Ottawa: Ozzy Food Market!
We were visiting a friend in Riverside and she recommended this place; said it was the only place they go to now since discovering it. She said it has the best shawarma and, boy, was she right.
This place is a hybrid shawarma counter, restaurant, meat shop and Lebanese grocery.
We were greeted by a cheerful man behind the shawarma counter as we came in ( I wish I had asked his name!). He was incredibly friendly and served us with gusto even giving us a sample of the chicken before he put in in the my sandwich.
Boy, is the chicken delicious: tender, juicy, hot and flavourful!
My husband got the lamb which I haven't seen offered anywhere else. He said it was -very- good.
We ordered medium sandwiches, which is about the size of a large at every other place I've been to.
Because this place is also a bit of a grocery, they have a good selection of bakery goods for dessert. We bought a cookie and a square of baklava. Very tasty.
Bottom line: We will visit this place again when we go to Ottawa even though it is out of our way. If you're in the south end of Ottawa, it's not a far drive from Bank and Walkley... so go!!
