Over the last few years, Shawarma has slowly become one of the most popular foods available. Shawarma is a Middle Eastern chicken or beef wrap topped with onions, turnips, tabouleh, garlic sauce, and hot sauce. After eating at shawarma restaurants for over 10 years now we have gotten a good idea of where you can find some of the best shawarma in Mississauga! Today we will be going over our list of the top 8 shawarma restaurants in Mississauga.
8. Pita Land
Pita land is a Mediterranean fast food chain that specializes in their wrap offerings. With over 29 locations all over the GTA there a good chance of one being located near you. We tried their beef shawarma and absolutely loved it. Their large beef shawarma cost us around $13 and was absolutely enormous justifying its high price. We also tried their $4.99 falafel plate and was pleasantly surprised at its quality.
Shawarnado, located on Tomken Road, is a restaurant that specializes in high quality flavorful Middle Eastern cuisine. When I visited, I had their chicken shawarma sandwich and found it quite flavorful and delicious. For $7.75 the price was perfect for the amount of food I got. One of my associates tried their chicken shawarma plate, $10.99, and he liked it as well so I wouldn’t hesitate to try that option out as well.
6. Paramount Fine Foods
Paramount Fine Foods is one of the oldest and most well known Middle Eastern style restaurants in the GTA. They are an iconic Mississauga based brand that has recently bought the naming rights to the former Hershey’s Center (now Paramount Center). Although their shawarmas are slightly small, they are incredibly flavorful. Since Paramount’s shawarmas are Lebanese (not Mediterranean) they are on the dryer side but still tasty none the less. Paramount Fine Foods also offers a plethora of other dining options like meat pizzas and kebab meals. Most Paramount Mississauga locations also have a really good seating area with a thematic decor that will give you a great dine-in experience! One of the downsides to Paramount is that their food is slightly pricey but still worth it!
5. Laziz Shawarma
Laziz Shawarma is also a relatively new restaurant chain that opened its doors a few years ago. From then they have grown to have many locations spread all around Mississauga. Their shawarma wraps are, once again, very flavorful and are of a decent size. At $8.49 for a shawarma wrap, Laziz is on the more pricey end of the shawarma spectrum but still being worth the price. I also suggest getting their chicken on the rocks meal (rice topped with chicken and garlic/hot sauce) as that is what Laziz Shawarma is mainly known for!
4. Shawarma Hut
Shawarma Hut is a Mediterranean restaurant that is known for its great chicken shawarma wraps along with their other offerings. For $6.99 their chicken shawarma is a steal if you are looking for a quick delicious bite. We also suggest trying their falafel plate if you want to eat one of their good vegetarian options! Shawarma Hut, unlike some of the other spots on this list, has a huge seating area that you can bring your friends and family to dine in and enjoy your time there!
Osmows is one of the fastest growing Mississauga based restaurant chains. They have opened over 50 locations all over Canada recently opening their first location in Ottawa. The two main items Osmows is best known for is their shawarma wrap and their chicken on the rocks. Osmows’ shawarma wraps are filled with chicken and tasty sauces which makes their wrap one of the better shwarma wraps I’ve ever had. Their chicken on the rocks is hands down the best chicken on the rocks dish that exists right now. Their iconic blend of garlic sauce along with their extremely hot sauce makes all their offerings a treat to eat!
2. Lezzet Shawarma
Lezzet Shawarma is a family owned Mediterranean restaurant that specializes in their shawarma wrap. With a 4.5 star rating on Google, people all over Mississauga love this restaurant so I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried their shawarma wrap and absolutely loved it. For $7.50 this wrap was extremely flavorful and 100% worth the price. Along with their wraps, Lezzet also offers a plethora of other dishes that look delicious for a decent price. They also offer catering services if you are looking to order for a party.
1. Wrap a Bite
Wrap a Bite is a relatively new restaurant that opened a few years ago in Central Parkway Mall. This Shawarma Restaurant is one of the smaller places on this list, but the food is extremely flavorful. I have eaten well over a dozen wraps from Wrap a Bite and they have never failed to give me a great experience. At $8.99 a wrap Wrap a Bite is on the more expensive end of this list but well worth it! I have also tried their Falafel plate and found that it was very flavorful as well!
