It’s on Main Street near 14th Ave. They make a damn fine chicken Shawarma.

Canteen Mitra on Main Street, in Vancouver

Chicken Shawarma plate at Canteen Mitra

The place is a little odd inside; apparently once a French bistro, the shift to Middle Eastern cuisine seems not to have involved a redesign. But it’s cheery and comfy and lets you be part of the Main Street scene.

Hey, while writing this, I learned that the dude who makes the awesome lunches is “Mori” Momenzadeh Tameh and is little political issue all by himeself.

Anyhow, you can’t beat it for a quick tasty nutritious bite on that part of Main; which is saying something given the number of nearby eateries.

Looks so great - and then why does it have to be on a disposable plastic foam plate?

Looks good. So good in fact, you've basically ruined any hope I have of finding a satisfactory dinner option that isn't middle eastern now.

Mitra is a frequent lunch stop for me, and I had their chicken platter for dinner today. I've eaten a lot of schwarma/donairs/gyros in many different countries, and theirs is the best I've ever tasted, no question.
