A "Donair" is an ultimate comfort foods, especially with students,at the end of a night of drinking at local pubs.

A donair is an eastern Canadian variation on the döner kebab (also, some say it is a variation of a Greek Gyro) introduced in the early 1970s. The meat is shaved from a loaf (cooked on a rotating electric spit) made from a combination of (finely ground) ground beef, flour or bread crumbs, and various spices. The thickened sauce is made from evaporated milk, sugar, vinegar, and most often garlic. The meat and sauce are served rolled in (moist and briefly heated) pita bread with condiments such as diced tomato and raw diced onion.
