Centrale Bergham Opens in Toronto

The halal quick-service sandwich shop originally launched in Montreal in 2012. Over the last few years the popular Middle Eastern halal restaurant has been growing steadily in Ontario and Quebec. You can now find Centrale Bergham franchises from Quebec City to Montreal, and Ottawa to Toronto.

Centrale Bergham’s first Toronto outpost is owned by Ammar Al Jammal and opened in July, 2019. It arrives shortly after the city lined up for the opening of The Halal Guys, proving halal cuisine is all the rage here.

Ammar explains, “After opening more than 10 locations in the Montreal and a few in nearby Ottawa, it was time for Centrale Bergham to expand west. Toronto was the obvious next big city we wanted to leave a mark, as it is known for its diverse culture.”

The restaurant’s name reads Maghreb backwards. The name pays homage to the humble beginnings of the brand by paying respect to where they came from, North Africa.

On the left wall you’ll find a soda pop machine and a parade of Centrale Bergham’s signature sauces. One of the hallmarks of the popular halal restaurant is that they allow guests to sample and squirt their own sauces. The restaurant’s sauces are named after the destinations that inspire each flavour profile, Algerian, Moroccan and beyond!

Fast Food Halal Menu

Ammar explains Centrale Bergham’s food philosophy, “Our goal is to provide a quick meal, but quality is our priority. We consider ourselves to be in the fast-casual market. Centrale Bergham’s dishes feature flavours from all over the world and our concept has roots in French cuisine with an American twist.”

The popular halal restaurant in Toronto sources 100% Canadian meat. Its house-baked bread is imported daily from France, offering diners a unique texture and taste. Beverages on offer include Coca Cola fountain soda, juice, and water.

If it’s your first visit to Centrale Bergham, Ammar suggests ordering the restaurants signature dishes: Philly Steak Sandwich, Maximum Sandwich or the Bergham Sandwich.

Centrale Bergham offers traditional American-style burgers but its sandwiches are its best entree offering. The sub-meets-pita sandwiches are stuffed to the brim in a kebab-style bread.

If you’ve got a penchant for North African feasts on holiday, Centrale Bergham in Toronto will have you floating back to Casablanca, Marrakech, Cairo and The Nile River.
