Ok, i’m losing my mind right now…
If you aren’t familiar with this legendary east coast franchise, you’re about to be, according to Access Winnipeg!
It has been reported the Halifax-based King of Donair restaurant group will be coming to Winnipeg soon.
Sooo, you ask: What is Donair? Well, it was invented by Greek restaurateur Peter Gamoulakis in the 1970s in Nova Scotia and is their spin on gyros. It is a Turkish doner kebab of spicy meat served on Lebanese flatbread with a special sauce that is known in Halifax as “donair.” In 2015, Halifax listed as the official food of Halifax. In 1973 the King of Donair restaurant was opened and the city now has four of them.
Edmonton will be the home to the first one in the west and a pop-up KOD opened in Calgary and had line-ups for 4-6 hours when it did. Winnipeg is on their list of western Canadian cities that they will be opening in.
Ahhhhhhhh! Nothing is 100% confirmed, but there’s a good chance we could be consuming the king soon!
