Reigning in the throne of the crowd favourite salad station is Mama Ghanoush. Their menu features a little bit of everything. The shawarmas are reminiscent of the Westdale gem Basilique. You can add a little bit of Lebanese cuisine to your sandwiches with pitas and baba ghanoush. Lastly, a section of the menu is dedicated to three Mediterranean salads in loving memory of its predecessor. Will it live up to the real deal? You be the judge.


Gorditos works very much like Burrito Boyz, Burrito Bandits or any other burrito joints with catchy and alliterative names. You work your way down the line, choosing your base, protein, additional toppings and sauce. This is undoubtedly a delicious addition to Centro for a hot grab-and-go food for your next class. Yes, it is sad to see the roast beef sandwiches of A La Carte go, but the hot and fresh weekend waffles are still here as your hangover remedy.


Marauders no longer have to chase down Canada’s first grilled cheese food truck as it has rooted its wheels at the entrance of Centro. Proudly using local ingredients, Gorilla Cheese’s menu consists of six signature sandwiches with monthly features. While you can resort to the simple and classic grilled cheese, you might enjoy a sweet afternoon pick-me-up by trying “The Lumberjack,” which features melted cheddar cheese and bacon on a bed of sliced Granny Smith apples with a generous shower of maple syrup. Whatever you decide, you won’t be cheesed.
