Chicken Hummus Or Mexican? Gorge On Shawarmas At These Awesome Places

Anna posted on 01 December

One of the most popular Middle Eastern dishes in the world is the shawarma. It’s so popular that it even got a mention in The Avengers and a post-credit scene with the superheroes bent over their plates. So if you want to know where to get a superhero-approved favourite you’ve come to the right place.

Arabian Kebab Center

Along with biryani and lots of North Indian dishes like Chicken Punjabi Gravy, Tandoori Naan, Tangdi Kebab, they also serve shawarma. But their menu only has chicken shawarma which can be had as a roll {INR 50}, or a special roll {INR 60} or as a plate {INR 70}.
