If you follow Kennedy Road BIA on Instagram or are local to the area, then you’re probably aware that the Kennedy Road community loves its shawarma.
For many years, Johnny’s Shawarma has been a fan-favourite among Scarborough foodies. While it may be easy to miss as you pass by the area, this shawarma-stop is not one to forget! Located at 1904 Kennedy Road, Johnny’s Shawarma ensures a positive experience for their customers – leaving them with a satisfied appetite that keeps them coming back.
For those unfamiliar with this Middle Eastern dish, Shawarma consists of thinly shaved meat that has been slowly roasted on a spit giving it ultimate flavour and tenderness. It’s no wonder why shawarma dishes are loved by so many – and we promise Johnny’s Shawarma has it nailed to perfection.
Johnny’s offers a variety of shawarma wraps along with other traditional Middle Eastern favourites like falafels (deep fried balls made from ground chickpeas or fava beans), Lebanese pizza, hummus (chickpeas blended with tahini) and grape leaves. Our go-to order is the mixed beef and chicken shawarma wrap with their spicy garlic sauce!
The owners of this family-owned shawarma restaurant – Johnny and Ani – make you feel right at home with their loving demeanour and amazing customer service. It truly makes your experience that much more welcoming and inviting each time.
While predominantly a counter-service restaurant, Johnny’s Shawarma has recently completed renovations expanding their seating area; giving their customers ample space to dine-in (currently only take-out available).
Whether you’re looking to grab something quick-and-go, order delivery, or a place to sit in the company of good food, Johnny’s Shawarma is the spot for some addicting Middle Eastern cuisine.
