Leylam Shawarma

We came upon this curious concoction when we were surfing for munchies during my sister's lunch break: Shawarma rice. Undeniably, quite a number of people are fond of eating this meal in a cup so we decided to try it to figure out why people keep coming back for more. First off, Shawarma is a Middle Eastern sandwich-like wrap of shaved lamb, goat, chicken, turkey, beef, or a mixture thereof. Slices of grilled meat is then served with vegetables and a combination of spices all wrapped in a heated pita bread.

The first bite decided everything in an instant. It was the same Shawarma served here in the Philippines, complete with its creamy mayo filling, semi spicy sauce and heaps of sliced cabbage. With rice.

I'm not sure how people are able to eat this rice-mayo combination without stopping, but I certainly can't without taking a sip of my lemonade. I guess it's just too rich for me or I'm not really fond of anything with mayo (save for japanese mayo, that one's delicious). Other than that, it's good.

Next time, I'll skip the mayo.
