One another place in Al Taawun that serves decent shawarma’s and I ended up visiting them for lunch one day during my stay in that area.
They have a outer seating area which can get uncomfortable during lunch times and summer season but it can be a very good option to try during evening times when the weather is pleasent. The shrubs and greenery around the seating area is nicely done. Inner area has good seating capacity if you are planning to go with family or friends
As I went there at lunch time so I decided to sit near the express counter itself and order a shawarma to check out the taste.Fresh stock of saj and samoon had just arrived and I was served a shawarma in around 5 minutes. It had decent amount of chicken and a very nice after taste of garlic sauce. They also served the small salad (Pickled Cucumber and Carrot) which was nice and tangy
I was still hungry after having the shawarma and asked for suggestions from the menu to try. Communication gap was at its high as I couldn’t make head or tails of what they wanted to suggest nor did they understand my queries.
Finally settled on Meat Manakish and placed an order for it. The oven was right in front and while it cooked (hardly takes 2-3 mins at max) it made me more hungry at the sight of it.The chef was in a generous mood and added a nice layer of cheese onto it.
Taste wise I would say it was good but I would have loved it more if the meat was cooked a little more in the oven but I was not able to make them understand what I wanted. Non-Arabic speakers like me would find this hindrance difficult while placing an order.
Overall a decent place to try Shawarma and Manakish
