Try the "real" Arab shawarma and compare it with the same dishes cooked in your country. Which is better?
How to try the "real" shawarma in Dubai
Famous shaverma or shawarma is a dish of Arab origin. You can try it in virtually every country. It may be labeled differently and have endless variations of fillings, but the essence remains the same. The only "real" shawarma comes from the East.

To prepare this popular dish, they use tender fried chicken, sliced tomatoes, juicy lettuce, crispy cucumber and garlic wrapped in thin pita bread. In pita, stuffing is poured with fragrant olive oil and sprinkled with sweet paprika. Thus, an ordinary sandwich turns into something brilliant. You can buy that scrumptious treat at special tents for 1-2 dollars.
