DISCOVER Our delicacy


Shawarma – a delicacy that originated from the Middle East – is now an incredibly popular dish around the world, thanks to its irresistible flavors and incredibly tender meat. The word “shawarma” comes from the Turkish word “çevirme” meaning “turning,” an homage to the traditional cooking technique. To cook it, marinated meat, usually chicken, beef, or lamb, is slow-roasted on a vertical rotisserie for hours. As the meat cooks, the outer layer, which gets the most heat, becomes incredibly juicy and tender. Once fully cooked, the meat is sliced thinly and accompanied by a range of vegetables, sauces, and bread like tahini sauce and pita, making for a satisfying and flavorful meal that you cannot resist!

The origins of Shawarma can be traced back to the Ottoman Empire, where it was first conceived as a way to cook meat on a rotating spit. The recipe has since evolved and become a delicious staple in Middle Eastern cuisine. With roots in countries like Turkey, Greece, and Lebanon, this dish has been enjoyed for centuries by people across the region. The art of Shawarma-making has since spread across the globe, allowing people from all walks of life to experience its unique and irresistible flavors.  The meat is typically marinated in a blend of spices and slow-cooked on a vertical spit until it’s tender and juicy. Served up in pita bread or flatbreads, along with veggies and a choice of sauces, it’s no wonder Shawarma has become a global phenomenon. Whether you’re in the heart of Beirut or the streets of NYC, you can always count on a good Shawarma to satisfy your hunger and tantalize your taste buds.
