Did you know that shawarma comes from the Turkish word *çevirme*, which means “turning”? Well, you do now. What is it about the scent of this spinning, sizzling hunk of meat that puts our brain on a one-track mission (and doubly so if intoxicated)? Venus Pizza has won Best Shawarma for years, due to a combination of yummy product and prime location. Open till 4am Thursday through Saturday, Venus is always a favourite of the late-night crowd.
