Blowers & Grafton

Halifax declared the donair its official civic food in 2015, so you know their love is real. The Haligonian donair is typically served spicier than the more common Mediterranean style found throughout Calgary, and with only meat, sweet sauce, tomato and onion (no pickles, ever). It’s available wrapped or on pizza at Blowers & Grafton, so named for the intersection at Halifax’s infamous “pizza corner.” B&G also honours Pictou County, N.S., with a pizza that includes flown-in Brothers Pepperoni and brown sauce. Try either with a side of garlic fingers and an ice-cold Keith’s.

Scotian Style

This takeout spot off 52 Street N.E. offers donair and Pictou County-style pizza, plus non-pizza fare like lobster rolls and bacon-wrapped scallops. Scotian Style gets bonus points for creativity with keto-friendly donairs and crust-less bacon garlic fingers.
