Your getup-and-go food – Best Shawarmas in Dubai


Finding a Shawarma that blows your socks off is a bit rough job if you live in Dubai, because Dubai is teeming with so many eateries right now. Almost every restaurant serves its own version of Shawarma. Funny story actually, there was this place where I used to go with my friends, which served what they liked to call it; An Authentic Lebanese Shawarma. It was affordable, delicious, spicy and everything but not Authentic Lebanese in any way. We ended up calling it Ma-mu (Uncle) Shawarma. If you are a Pakistani you will get the humor in this name but if not then your bad! But it was probably the best Shawarma that I’ve ever had in my life. The point being is that you can find a delicious Shawarma anywhere from a top-notch fancy restaurant to a street shop. In Dubai, Shawarmas are usually served as a sandwich or wrap, with Tabbouleh, Fattoush, Taboon Bread, Tomato, and Cucumber usually topped with Tahini, Hummus, Pickled Turnips or Amba, depending on the place where you eat. Here is the list of top 7 places in Dubai, where you can find a Shawarma that will blow your socks off!


AutomaticThis place is one of the most reliable and delicious Lebanese joints in town. Automatic has been satisfying our grilled meat cravings for a while now and their Shawarma is no different. Their Shawarma is tender, fresh and juicy just enough so that the juice won’t drop down your sleeves. All of their Shawarmas are tasty but to name one, I think their Chicken Shawarma is the best.
