In December 2015, the city of Halifax declared their official food: the Donair. Now one of Halifax’s beloved donair spots, King of Donair, is looking westward, and will run two special pop-up events in early March.
King of Donair announced this week they will be holding two consecutive events in Calgary and Banff.
Then, on March 5, KOD heads for the hills to Banff and the East Coast LifeStyle Rail Jam at Sunshine Village.
The donair-maker is urging Albertans to come out to “eat a real deal Donair from the first to introduce Donairs in Canada, Canada’s OG – King of Donair.” They’ve certainly earned that swagger; KOD has been named “Best Donair” in Halifax over several years, and claims they were the first to bring donair to Canada.
The business is reportedly looking to open up locations in western Canada, however they have not named any specific cities or timeline.
