Good day everyone! Teacher Em here… On this blog we are going to talk about food.
It is originally a middle-eastern cuisine consisting of meat cut into thin slices, stacked in a cone like shaped “pita” bread and roasted slowly on a turning vertical rotisserie or spit. For those of you who don’t have any idea, I’m talking about “Shawarma” (some other names includes: Chawarma, Shaurma or Showarma). Still no idea? Okay, other similar dishes are Doner Kebab, Al Pastor and Gyros. Nothing comes to mind? Okay, originally they use Lamb or Mutton for the meat it is said that Turkey and Veal are also alternatives but in the Philippines; Beef and Chicken are the most common. They commonly have tomatoes, cucumber and onions to go with it. This dish is usually “made to order” meaning, they only prepare it after you order it and you can usually see the entire preparation right on front of you. It is also great to consume it HOT…
Some F2F students love this dish for a couple of good reasons. First, you can find a lot of shawarma kiosk around Tagaytay City especially in public places. Second, this dish only takes a couple of minutes to prepare so no problem if you’re in a hurry and you can easily eat it while on the go. Lastly, it is tasty and cheap. (What else can I say????)J
But personally I would recommend only 1 shop for this tasty delicacy… “Turk’s” you can check their shops in 2 different places in Tagaytay City:
Ayala Malls Serin (2nd level before Coldstone (ice cream shop))
Fora Mall (2nd level, near the escalator right before the Cinemas)
