Every corner in the city has a shawarma corner and every Ottawan has their own favourite place to have this delicious Mediterranean cuisine.
Here are 5 best Shawarma spots in Ottawa:

1. Osmow’s

347 Dalhousie St

Osmow’s offers the best shawarma in Ottawa! It is a Mediterranean restaurant which captures a truly modern taste giving their customers the luxury of customizing their foods.
Here’s a review of Osmow’s:
“Ottawa is pretty dry in terms of quality fast food since I am not a big fan of the rest of the restaurants. Osmow’s is a combination of traditional and modern food and this location is a must-visit in Ottawa. Make sure you add it to your list of places to go to in the city. The best option for all the students in the area, hands down. The staff is super friendly and the place is spotlessly clean. Great job guys.”

2. Shawarma House

836 March Rd.

Shawarma House offers some of the best hummus and garlic sauce in Ottawa! It also offers perfectly seasoned meats.

It is located in Riocentre Kanata strip mall, so take a short break from shopping and drop by to taste their amazing shawarmas!

Here’s a review of Shawarma House:
“Fantastic quality, huge portions and very polite. Usually pretty quick even during the lunch rush. Not always the cleanest if you are eating in but that’s due to how busy they are. Take out has always been top-notch.”

3. Shawarma Garlic & Onion

200-1465 Richmond Rd.

Shawarma Garlic and Onion is the perfect dining spot! Their beautiful interior makes it a great place to eat there if you don’t feel like take-out. Their veggies are all fresh and the toppings used in shawarma are mouth-watering!

Here’s a review of Shawarma Station:
“So much better than Shawarma Palace!!! I always get the large chicken sandwich and it’s only ten bucks. Their spicy hummus is to die for!! As well you can get additional amounts of it to go.

“A hidden treasure of Mideast and int’l flavors for the small wallet. Try the succulent chicken special for lunch. A steal st under $6. Lot’s of other taste bud goodies. Tucked away in a strip mall at the corner of Bank and Alta Vista that also hosts the incredible Nero Cafe and Mediterranean Bakery. Magic find of a little plaza. ❤”
