We love it. Ever since the shawarma has gained popularity in India, we happen to just love the idea of pita bread that contains vegetables, spices, herbs and dressing. Though we do work with our customizations such as using rumalis instead of pita bread or probably cutting down on a few herbs or sauces, the Indianised version seems to be loved by all. We tell you places to head to for that lovely authentic shawarma or the very Indianised version in Delhi!
The list should definitely start with this place in New Friends Colony that is ever so popular for their shawarmas to the extent that this place is synonymous with shawarma in Delhi. These are not prepared in the traditional way but that really does not affect their popularity. What is interesting is that they also have paneer fillings for the vegetarian to try. The mayonnaise and mint chutney is done just right along with your food, and you don’t stand disappointed. The prices are decent and work for you to grab a quick bite when you’re on the move.
Located in Khan Market, what works for them with their beautiful interiors is also the sheesha and shawarma that they seem to offer. Comparatively offering a more authentic version, grab your vegetarian and non-vegetarian shawarmas along with pita bread, fresh salad, falafel, pickles and hummus.
One of those places serving delicious Mediterranean and Lebanese in Delhi, Al Zaitoon nails it for you when it comes to shawarmas. They are authentic and you come across four varieties which are mutton, chicken, paneer and falafel. So something in store for everyone! What is even more fascinating is that your favourite shawarma is prepared in six different styles – Kuwaiti, Emaarati, Arab, Al Zaitoon, spicy and European. A lot of choice and customization available, you will find this popular joint in food courts.
The place to be when you’re in SDA market, Spice Aangan does real good shawarmas. Their chicken and paneer shawarmas are big hits. Filling portions and delectable flavours, value for money combos are available for you to get a whole box packed instead of one roll. The chutney and mayonnaise served along totally compliment the shawarma and are a treat to the taste buds.
Ricos is an ever popular restaurant in GTB Nagar, North Campus, and these people know their food well. Well priced for all students to be able to enjoy their meals and not being too heavy on the pocket, their menu is worth a try. The vegetarian shawarma platter offers you grilled cottage cheese in olive oil with garlic, and this is served with pita bread along with hummus, fattoush and labneh. Both the vegetarian and non-vegetarian shawarma platters are absolute favourites for lots of students.
