If you like juicy, tender, well-seasoned meat you are in for a real treat, because whether you are looking for a tasty lunch, a delicious dinner or a late-night snack, you can’t go wrong with the ILA shawarma.

While there are many different styles of this popular dish, from the Greek gyros to the Turkish döner kebab and the Armenian tarna, none can compare with the classic Lebanese wraps.

The dish gained popularity throughout the region through the influence of the Turkish-Ottoman Empire. In fact, the word shawarma was said to have originated from the Turkish word “çevirme”, which describes the turning process of cooking the meat.

The shawarma evokes a visual imagery of slow-grilled meat on a piece of warm bread, a comfort food picked up in a corner deli on a lunch break. While the shawarma has been unjustly categorized by some as a fast-food item, it is more than the exotic cousin of the sandwich. It is tradition wrapped in a delicious treat.
