The sun is finally shining outside! It’s time to come out from hibernating indoors and being buried under tons of paperwork (I think we can all relate). All I know is my body is ready to soak in the sun with some good eats during my lunch break. Lucky for us North Vancouverites, there are so many parks and outdoor areas to explore and, most importantly, eat in. I know of the perfect takeout meal that’ll leave you full and nourished (score!): a donair! And you don’t need to worry about bringing any cutlery or plates on the go (hello, hands). Here’s my challenge to you: take a break, go on a date with your best friend (aka yourself, of course), grab a donair from Donair Dude, and head outside to enjoy your meal under the sun.
According to the manager, the chicken donair is the most popular item on the menu, and now I totally understand why! Donair Dude has officially blown my mind (read: taste buds). Not into chicken or lamb? No worries — falafel to the rescue. Not gunna lie, I’m a meat lover at heart, but falafels are welcome in my diet any day. I might have the best order ever in mind: roasted red pepper hummus, a little bit of lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, pickles, pineapple (trust me on this), jalapeño peppers (depending on if you like spice like I do), black olives, and taboulleh topped off with some chicken, lamb, or falafel and a sauce of your choice. Is your mouth watering yet?!
The phrase “practice what you preach” is coming to mind; I’m off to grab myself a donair and absorb some vitamin C!
