Our latest spot for a tasty bite at in Abu Dhabi
As Shish Shawarma expanded recently in Abu Dhabi, we decided to check it out at their newly opened Khalifa City A branch located in ‘The Pink Shops’.
We weren’t even parked yet and two employees came rushing to our car to welcome us and take our order. As it was our first time we preferred going inside and checking out the menu.
It was 8pm on a Thursday night and all the tables were filled and this street food cafe was buzzing with drive-in, take away and table orders.
Opting for sandwiches, we ordered a mix as they propose the regular Pita bread (10AED), Saj with sesame seeds (15 AED) on top and the Kaakeh (20AED). In less than 10 minutes, our order was ready and we couldn’t wait to taste the appetizing and warm Arabic breads.
The menu also includes different salads to get some greens, shawarma platters, mix grill and a wide selection of kaake and manakeeshe.
While the Saj comes cut in four pieces and is displayed in a pizza box, the tightly wrapped Kaakeh is rolled inside a paper for takeaway or cut into large pieces for dine-in. All our Arabic breads were bursting at the seams with grilled chicken or beef meat – you may also have a mix – served with tahini or creamy garlic sauce and pickles.
It was nice to try these different sandwiches but we still prefer the basic and classic Pita version best enjoyed with mandatory French fries.
A spot to have in mind once in a while for lunch on the go or whenever you are looking for home delivery that won’t break the bank.
There is a minimum order of 55AED for free home delivery inside Khalifa City A.
