The delicious Shawrma sandwiches could be eaten at any time, whether during a long working day or a family gathering or while traveling and on business trips.
Shawrma is found in almost every country; in Arab countries, Europe and United States. You will find Shawrma trucks when you walk in New York’s famous, crowded Times Square.
The history of Shawrma is attributed to several civilizations such as the Arabs, Turkish and even German. However, it is said that Syrians knew Shawrma when the Turkish pilgrims brought it while traveling through Syria.
