On a bit of a back-alley restaurant row behind Corniche Towers, this perennially popular and colourful fast-food shawarma joint gets the job done with succulent beef or chicken versions – spice 'em up with Mexican sauce and/or chilli paste – stuffed in fresh pita bread baked in a brick oven right at the counter.
