About Shawarma

Shawarma is made by stacking one or more of the following meats with a variety of up to 12 different spices and herbs: Lamb, Chicken, Turkey, Beef or Veal. They are commonly placed on a vertical spit, and may be grilled for as long as a day. The meat is roasted slowly on all sides as the spit rotates in front of a flame. While grilling, the meat is shaved off the stack. Shawarma is eaten as a fast food, made up into a sandwich wrap with pita bread or rolled up in an Armenian lavash flatbread together with vegetables and dressing. A variety of vegetables can come with the shawarma which include: cucumber, onion, tomato, lettuce, eggplant, parsley, pickled turnips, pickles, and cabbage. This will optionally be accompanied by French fries in some countries, including: Australia, Bulgaria, China, Germany, Egypt, India, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Pakistan, Palestine, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, Bulgaria, United Kingdom, and in The United States. Other options include thick cut French fries served inside the lavash (Lafa Bread) to help soak up the sauce and juices, keeping them inside the wrap. And as you can see below it has even become the food of Super Heros :)
