Shawarma: Spit-Fired and Sliced

Shawarma can be cooked for hours and served within minutes. Learn how with Groupon’s exploration.

You might glimpse it behind a quick-serve counter or through a swinging kitchen door: a glistening cone of meat, revolving majestically as broiler panels turn it golden-brown on all sides. When a customer places an order, the chef will take a knife and shave off juicy strips of meat to be folded into a sandwich or layered onto a bed of rice.

What this dish is called depends on where you are: in a Greek restaurant it’s gyros, in Turkish cafés and in most of Canada it’s doner kebab or just donair, and in Arabic-speaking establishments it’s shawarma. All three terms are derived from their respective languages’ words for turning, and it’s the vertical spit that forms the heart of the dish. Some models are capable of holding more than 200 pounds of protein or serving as a private merry-go-round and sauna.

The stuff that gets stacked on this instrument varies widely. If the cone of meat has a smooth, uniform texture, it’s probably ground and reshaped lamb, beef, or chicken. If it’s marbled and has more of a patchwork appearance, various cuts of meat have been stacked by hand onto the spit and bound together with a little fat—chicken, beef, and lamb are especially popular options, but veal and pork are sometimes used.

Before it hits the spit, the meat is seasoned with spices that often include pepper, oregano, paprika, cumin, coriander, and garlic. Marinades and spice rubs help it stand up to the traditional flavorful accompaniments. Middle Eastern chefs will often include hummus, tahini sauce, and pickled veggies, and at Greek spots tomato, onion, and tzatziki completes the dish. Pitas or other flatbreads turn the combination into a portable meal.

fantastic "hole-in-the-wall," Glatt Kosher, Mediterranean fare. Especially flavorful grilled, seasoned meats and creamy baba ganoush. Highly recommended.
