Mo2armisha shawarma shop is an exclusive shawarma and sandwich, located both in Al-She3eb and in Mahboula. The shop is famous for their shawarmas, but they also offer several other kinds of sandwiches like Hallum and Moshakal. Plus, they sell several side orders like fried shrimp and jalapeno poppers.
- Their best shawarma is the Bu-Waleed. It’s a meat one that’s mixed in a minty sauce, with fresh tomatoes and onions. You must try this one (it’s the 1st shawarma pic on the left, oozing mint sauce).
- Another best seller is the Uncle Sam. Again, this is also a meat shawrama, but is mixed with a different sauce. This is also a great shawarma sandwich, because it’s so rich in savory aioli sauce (but the Bu-Waleed still tops it). I don’t have a picture of this one because it’s mostly sold out by the time I’m ordering, that’s how best selling this sandwich is.
- As for chicken, their best selling chicken shawarma is the potato king, which is mixed with fries and garlic sauce (pictured here with white garlic sauce). I didn’t like this one very much, I much rather have several Bu-Waleeds instead.
- This brings us to the sandwich size, which isn’t big or large. You’ll need to eat between 2-4 to fill up. To give you a sense of size, each sandwich is made with thin arabic pita bread (double not single sided).
Our bill was KD 3.900, and that was for 5 shawarmas and 4 chili chutneys. Their prices are a little more expensive than other places (like jam3iya and small joints), but that’s OK. The sandwiches are filled to the rim with meat, the sauces are unique, and the place is owned by The Sultan Center. All are good reasons to be more expensive.
They open from 1 p.m., but the Shawarmas are not usually ready till 1.30- 2, so you better call ahead to make sure. Also, if you’re going after 9 pm or on weekends, it’s also good to call to make sure they have shawarmas.
They have two branches: She3eb (Darwish Al-Aradi street, just behind Flex Executive Gym) and Mahboula. Their phone numbers are 2261-5234 and 2371-2580.
