That’s right it has been made official!
The donair is the food of Halifax!
For years people have been coming to Nova Scotia, Halifax in particular to try the sweet and savoury meat-lovers treat that is closely related to the Greek gyro.
Well, in a close tie, the donair has been elevated to official food status in Halifax. Mayor Mike Savage broke a 7-7 tie yesterday, December 8 at Tuesday’s Halifax regional council meeting that declares the donair “Halifax’s Official Food”
It is suggested that the donair is to Halifax what the Smoked Meat sandwich is to Montreal, or the Beaver Tail is to Ottawa, as well as British Columbia’s Nanaimo bars and Quebec’s poutine and Saskatchewan’s Saskatoon Berry pie. If you are Canadian you recognize all these.
Yum! I love it! Soon time for a donair…
