Anatomy of a Shawarma (Part 2)

Brace your stomachs food lovers! Especially Shawarmadevotees such as myself. I proudly present a second installment of the “Anatomy of a Shawarma” post. Below, you shall bear witness to what we refer to as the “Shawarma Plate“. An equally scrumptious alternative to eating a rolled-up Shawarma with your hands. It has all its ingredients (bread, chicken, vegetables, pickles, garlic sauce and french fries) spread out on a plate for those who prefer to wolf down their shawarmas with a knife and fork. The serving is much larger and of course, 2-3SAR more than what we usually pay for an ordinary Shawarma. But it’s worth it!

Scroll down and salivate!

This is from Assaraya Restaurant:
their Shawarma Plate in all its glory.

This costs around 10-12SAR, I think.
To. Die. For. XD
Some Shish Kofta (mixed, minced meat rolled up and grilled).

Appetizers: The green stuff is called Taboule, the white stuff is the heavenly Aioli aka Garlic Mayonnaise sauce and the one below is my favorite, the Babaganoosh! YUM-OH!

What are you waiting for?? Go on, call for a Shawarma delivery! Better yet, go get one yourself at the nearest Mama Noura or Assaraya Restaurant you can find! C’mon…You know you want to…


Cheers! *burp*

  9. One thing i miss about Saudi Arabia is the FOOD!!!! Can&#39;t duplicate the taste… Nothing like it here in California and nothing like it in the Philippines. Even Lance, Dustin, Elias, and Dr. Senadrin have found a spot somewhere in Manila wherein the taste of the food is as close as its going to get to the food we used to enjoy in KSA. But still FOOD!!! The Chicken Shawarmas for SR2.00 with
