This can't-miss, mostly Jordanian hotspot makes Abu Dhabi's best shawarma, carved from two massive spits (one chicken, one beef) and served sandwiched, sliced or plated to legions of connoisseurs in simple yet stylish surrounds. Equally impressive is the house hummus (with chickpeas, tomatoes, onions and parsley) and labneh (thick yoghurt) with garlic. Yalla!
