If ever there were a hidden, albeit quirky, gem of a takeaway, you’ll discover it on the unassuming and seemingly forgotten Scott Street in downtown Kitchener.
Across from the former home of two of the city’s icons, the Waterloo Region Record and the Kitchener Farmers’ Market, KW Wholesale is in the former Braun’s bicycle shop which closed, rather ignominiously, in 2014 after more than eight decades in business.
Today, though, open the door at 27 Scott St. and you enter what is a half-soccer pitch of food products, cooking supplies, kitchen ephemera, notions and gadgets — and some very nice-looking Turkish carpets, to boot.
Head through the brightly lit aisles and then past pallets of rice and cooking oil to the back, and you’ll find a POS, partially obscured by pandemic plastic shielding, and a cooler case with ready-made dishes like mutabal and grape leaves — and skewered meats, wrapped and awaiting the grill — prepared by Yum Yum Kabob.
