Top 5 shawarma spots in Qatar
Shawarmas are a staple food enjoyed thoroughly by many in Qatar, whether it be locals or visitors from abroad. Predominately found in Middle Eastern cuisine, it is popularly known for its tender, flavorful and juicy meat which is slowly roasted over low heat for a long period of time.
The soft shawarma bread (flatbread or pita) combined with pickles, fresh vegetables, tahini, french fries, and thinly sliced chicken, beef, or even lamb, is a mouth-watering delight for foodies across Qatar.
The possibilities are endless with the shawarma as many restaurants allow you to add more ingredients or even make it really spicy, enabling you to have shawarmas of variety each time. The average price for the standard-sized shawarma is QAR 7-8, whereas, those with a large appetite can get the large shawarma for around QAR 12-13.
Here is a list of some of the best shawarma restaurants in Qatar.
Jabal Lebnan Restaurant
Well-renowned in Qatar for its juicy shawarmas, Jebal Lebnan’s special spicy chicken shawarma for QAR 12 is a must-try. With a fairly large portion filled with your favorite meat, garlic sauce, fries, lettuce, and a side of olives, the Turkish restaurant does not disappoint with its truly unique and consistent flavor.
