Hi.. I am Hicham, an Egyptian architect living in Alexandria.
Shawarma is a lot like a gyro, kind of like a taco, but so different in many ways..
Shawarma is thinly sliced cuts of meat, like chicken, beef, goat, lamb, and turkey, rolled into a large piece of flatbread that has been heated. Inside.. foods like hummus, tahini, pickles, vegetables, and even french fries are added.
It is served with fries, salads like tahini (shown in the back), and just by itself for a quick bite on the go.
