Vox and Sevi, the founders of Mighty Halifax Donair, frequently find themselves on the receiving end of the question, “But, are you actually from Halifax?” The answer is no, not exactly. Vox is from Ontario, but Sevi spent several years studying in Halifax. While he never went back to the city upon graduation, he sorely missed its cuisine. The solution? Bring those eats straight to Calgary, AB via a food truck. To sample all things donair, stop on by.
But, wait. What is a donair? If you’re unfamiliar, a donair starts with well-seasoned ground beef rolled into a loaf-like shape and spit-fired. This beef is served up in a pita and topped off with tomatoes and onions. Last, but definitely not least, a donair gets slathered in a special sweet-and-spicy sauce made from a blend of evaporated milk, garlic, vinegar, and sugar. This results in a delightful flavor combination that’s somehow sugary, savory, and mouth-singeing all at once. The donairs at this truck are made according to tradition, although you can slap on extras like pepperonis or mozzarella if you prefer. Plus, they also whip up crispy donair egg rolls, essentially all of the above ingredients stuffed in an egg roll and deep-fried. Curious to sample this Nova Scotia favorite? Then stop by Mighty Halifax Donair ASAP. Even better? Book ‘em for your next event. You won’t regret it.
