I’ll come out and say it. I’m struggling to find a truly amazing and tasty shawarma/gyro/döner kebab/donair here in the GVRD that I’m really happy with and a place that makes it that I would frequent regularly if it blew me away. If anyone can help me by directing me to one that is at the top of the class, please, please, please let me know.
As any visitor to Crystal Mall in Burnaby can attest, it is heavily East Asian in context. Walking inside you feel like you are transported across the Pacific, both in terms of the kinds of shops and eateries and the people packed inside. So stepping just outside to Abdul’s was a refreshing change to get away from the sea of black hair. 🙂 My experience on this visit was completed by the pack of about fifteen Persians who suddenly came into the store when I was ordering, complete with traditional dress on the part of the females in the contingent. Pretty amazing and a boost to my expectations of what I could get from this place.
