I needed to go into downtown today, and most time when that happens including today, I make a visit to Amin Donair on 7th Ave. While I knew it was coming, not until the owner told me did it sink in. After 40+ years as a Calgary Institution, it will be closing in October.
While some don't know about Amin Donair, it is absolutely the best donair in the city. No need to go large - just a regular will fill you, and make sure it is 'suicide'. With cilantro and his special indian hot sauces, there is no competition. Reason many don't know about it are two fold. First, it is in probably the saddest block on 7th ave, and many people don't stroll down that way. Second, they are such a small outfit that they really don't need any more people coming, so they never advertise. Visit at lunch and you'll see the line-up inside and the line-up outside.
Anyway - you all have till October to try it. Remember, order a regular, and ask for suicide. Let him add his ingredients, and savor the results.
