Super Donair, Saskatooon, SK

I had lunch today at Super Donair.

I ordered a large beef donair with donair sauce and tomatoes.

What is donair?

Donair is a Middle Eastern dish made of roasted meat cooked on a vertical spit. In a prepared dish, seasoned meat is stacked on a vertical spit in the shape of an inverted cone. It is turned slowly, cooking against a vertical rotisserie. A tomato, onion or pineapple may be placed at the top of the stack for additional flavouring. The meat is cooked by an electric burner. 

The rate of roasting can be adjusted by varying the strength of the heat and the distance between the heat and the meat, allowing the cook to adjust to varying rates of consumption. The outside of the meat is sliced vertically in thin, crisp shavings when done. While cooking, the meat is shaved off the stack with a large knife. 

Donairs are a big thing back home in Nova Scotia so whenever I come across them on my travels, I try them. Size-wise my large donair was a great deal at $10.  Despite the name of the restaurant, this was not a super donair.  The meat was fried to be heated and there was some charred bits.  The meat was a bit too peppery.  The donair sauce is one of the best parts of a donair and this wasn't sweet enough.  I ate about half of it because I was hungry and discarded the rest.
