You will also find some interesting high-fibre and healthy alternatives to rice such as bulgor, a dried cracked wheat used in many famous dishes around the world (kibbeh, tabouleh, etc.) or freekeh used primarily as a much healthier substitute to rice.
Produce At Ammar's we provide a large range of fresh produce many people have difficulty finding elsewhere. Each week we personally go to the market and carefully select our most in demand fruits & vegetables. Many of which, attract people from all over the world as it reminds them of their homelands, where exotic fruit and vegetation is a cherished part of ethnic culture. As Canadians, we also strongly support local farmers and Canadian agriculture by supplying day-to-day fresh produce for all of our cooking necessities.
Bakery The most important household necessity for our customers, might just be our pita bread. Receiving fresh pita bread on a daily basis from only the best bakeries in Canada, is a crucial part of our business. For the best prices in the city, you can find freshly baked bread made by Canadians of all backgrounds. Whether it be Syrian/Lebanese pita, Iraqi samoon bread, Egyptian aish, Pakistani/Indian naans, we take pride in providing not only a great variety, but superior quality breads.
You will also find a unique display of freshly baked sweets, both imorted and local in our shop. The most popular quite possibly, our infamous baklava's, & ma'amouls (date, walnut, pistachio filled cookies).
In many cultures, a cup of hot tea or chai is not complete without the company of a delightful piece of rusk, or bread sticks. Whether you are trying to get a taste of south-eastern asia, or the middle-east your cup of tea will never be alone again.
Dairy Only at Ammar's will you find all middle-eastern cheeses like halloumi, akawie, twist, nabulsi, etc., alongside egyptian roomy (a very well aged cheese, rare in the west), and greek/cypriot cheeses.
