On my birthday I wanted to go out to lunch and have a beef wrap/shawarma/donair… Reg introduced me to this delicious and wonderful treat after we first met and it is not something I usually make for myself. I suggested we go to Tabisti Grill for my birthday lunch.
It was in the middle of the afternoon and the restaurant (6990 Victoria Drive) was quite quiet which was wonderful. I am not a fan of busy places that are crowded and loud. Plus, I love the big booths at the front of the restaurant!
Our server highly recommended their lunch buffet which was only $11.95 which normally I would have said yes to but we were in a bit of a rush and I just wanted a delicious beef wrap.
With a side Greek salad. Which almost cost as much as the buffet so the server came back to make sure this is what we wanted and I assured him, yes, this is what we wanted. And that we would be back for the buffet next time.
Reg ordered the lamb which was very delicious. I do like to have more of a vinegary zing (and lettuce) with my Greek salad though.
But the beef wrap was divine! They really did not hold back on the hummus and tzatziki which made it absolutely saucy heaven. Exactly what I wanted. The beef was tender too. What a treat.
It is so funny. We actually used to live in the condo across the street from this restaurant. It used to be a convenient store at the corner of Victoria Drive and 54th Avenue. I think it is just as well we do not live THAT close! Very dangerous for our hips and our wallets, LOL.
Our server was so friendly and fun and generous. The food was tasty, filling and a great price. There is nothing that I like more than a comfortable place to go in the hood for a great donair. I have been looking for a local hangout and I think I found it at Tabisti Grill. A birthday gift in and of itself and Reg likes it too!
And, as promised, I will go back for the buffet!
