Nova Scotia’s Six Pound Mega-Meal! See The “Donair”! The World’s Biggest Mouths Of Food!

Anyone Want A Six Pound Donair?

Hey, who wants to head to Nova Scotia with me to take on this BIG BIG BIG meal?

Doesn’t that look great? I would love to bite down on this donair, wouldn’t you? What? You have a question?

Um, What Is A “Donair?”

Good question! The “Donair” is a uniquely Nova Scotia dish – and for those who don’t have a globe nearby – I do by the way – Nova Scotia is the easternmost of Canada’s ten provinces, north of Maine.

Allrecipes.com describes the origin of the donair:

“In the early 70’s, a Greek restaurateur in the city of Halifax introduced the Donair. Within a few short years, virtually all pizzerias had added their version of the dish to their menus. Not to be confused with gyros, the Donair has a vastly different flavor.”


Now, You Can Bite Down On Six Pounds Of It!

According to the “Globalnews.ca” website, a restaurant in Nova Scotia is giving you the chance to eat six pounds of Donair – and of course there’s a prize attached:

“It’s six pounds of roasted meat, tomatoes, onions and sweet garlic sauce atop a pizza-sized pita – and so far no one has been able to eat it all.

Alexandra’s Pizza in Sydney, N.S., has been challenging people to devour its massive donair, but no one has finished it after 17 attempts in the last five months.

Up for grabs is a year of free pizza or donairs, $500 to a local charity of their choice, and a photo on the pizza shop’s wall-of-fame.”

Well, do you think you could handle all of this?

Each donair costs $59, and you can read more about this enormous meal at the “Global News” website here:

Thanks to my Canadian friend Sly LaCroix for sharing this with me! He knows that I love these “mega meal” stories, and have shared them before, like this one:

  1. 1. The Donair originated in Greece where it is called a Gyro. They are exactly the same.
    2. Newfoundland /Labrador I believe is the most Eastern Province

  2. I have never heard of one of these, John. Far to much meat for my family but it is an unusual idea.

  3. Reblogged this on johnrieber and commented:

    Anyone want to join me for lunch?

  4. Looks pretty good! I’d try it. Perhaps best shared with a family of six??

  5. Wow, That’s a huge burger and a huge Donair. I have seen and heard of Donair for the first time. 🙂

  6. We know that as ‘Doner’ kebab here, and it is Turkish in origin, not Greek. The city streets are full of kebab shops selling Doner meat, which is served in a hot open pitta bread, alongside (the option of) chopped salad and garlic sauce. It is a cheap late-night meal, much favoured by those who have had too much to drink, and are staggering home at night.

    Best wishes, Pete.
