Shawerma Plus: Waterloo’s Best Shawerma
Shawerma Plus has two locations in Waterloo, Ontario by Laurier University on University and King St. The restaurants are family owned and operated by the Bunoo family, who first opened doors in 2012.
During the shoot, I talked at length with Jay Bunoo about his menu and what they offered. It became very evident how much providing good food food to the students and residents of Waterloo means to him. He talked about the process of marinating, prepping and cooking the meat, as well as the importance of keeping everything fresh.
Besides food, Jay and his family are extremely active in the community, by supporting Laurier Athletics whenever they can. At the same time, Jay and his family are originally from Syria and are always doing their best to help support recent refugees. They help them by finding lodging and donating money to help get the families on their feet after the long and stressful process of leaving their homes. An example of this is from 2019 when they donated 70% of profits on the store’s 7th birthday. So, not only are you getting some great food, you know that you are also helping the Bunoo’s and Shawerma Plus to support some really great causes!
Personally, I have had most of their menu and have absolutely no complaints! But my favouite would be the Chicken Shawerma Plate with the fattoush salad and fries.
