Restaurant: Ziba Berlin Doner
Location: Toronto Beaches | Ashbridges Bay
For the majority of my adult life, I’ve resided in Toronto’s East End, and although I’ve since moved out of the city, Toronto’s East End still feels like home and holds a special place in my heart. Although not as busy as the West, Toronto’s East End is a vibrant growing community home to a number of fantastic local restaurants.
Last month, I was invited to try a new hidden gem in Toronto’s East End, Ziba Berlin Doner with my food bestie and partner in crime, Betty Glam. Ziba Berlin is a cool and hip new restaurant located near Ashbridges Bay at the corner of Queen E. and Coxwell serving up tasty German street food.
I am a sucker for pretty spaces and upon arrival, I naturally fell in love with the restaurants beautiful modern interior which features bright yellow and soft blue tones giving off warm summer vibes.
Neither Betty or I had tried done before so this experience was new and exciting for us. We weren’t sure where to start or what to order, thankfully the server was kind enough to explain the process and guide us through the Doner building process.
So how does it work? Essentially you build your own Doner by selecting from different types of bread, toppings, and sauces. Betty and I both chose the chicken doner kebob inside a Turkish Pide topped with fries of course ;).
Their chicken doner is priced at $10.50 which is a fantastic deal, in my opinion, considering the quality and amount of food you receive. The doner was incredibly tasty, the chicken was divine but the sauces and fries were the best part!
If you’re heading to the beach this summer and looking for a local comfort food restaurant to enjoy, Ziba Berlin Doner is a hidden gem definitely worth a try. With friendly staff, a laid back atmosphere and delicious German street style comfort food, what more could you desire? I will definitely be returning to Ziba Berlin Doner soon!
