What is Shawarma?

Shawarma is a popular Middle Eastern meal that is made from marinated meat, such as lamb, beef, and chicken. It is one of the world’s most popular street foods, especially in Egypt, and is now a staple at most Middle Eastern restaurants. Shawarma is a mouth-watering meal that is sure to please food and meat lovers.

How is Shawarma Made?

Shawarma is marinated with various seasonings and spices such as cumin, turmeric, and paprika. It is made by stacking thinly sliced meat, typically lamb, beef, or chicken, on a large rotating skewer or cone. It is also sometimes cooked with extra fat from the meat to give it a juicer taste. The shawarma stack is rotated slowly for hours as it cooks in front of a heat source that continuously roasts the outer layer.

Why is Shawarma Cooked Vertically?

Shawarma is cooked vertically on a skewer that rotates for hours. By stacking the meat and roasting it vertically, the meat marinates in its own fat as it cooks. This makes shawarma soft, tender, and delicious!

What Kind of Meat is Shawarma Made of?

Shawarma can be made from any kind of meat! In most cases, Beef or Chicken is used to make Shawarma, but other popular meats used to make Shawarma include Lamb, Goat, and Turkey. No matter what type of meat is used, Shawarma is prepared and served in the same way. 

At Basha’s Shawarma, we serve both Beef and Chicken Shawarma.

What's the Difference Between Donair and Shawarma?

Donairs are made from ground meat formed into a cone shape, while shawarma is made with cuts of marinated meat stacked on a skewer.

Is Shawarma Healthy?

Packed with lean protein, a variety of fresh vegetables, and a rich blend of antioxidants, this Middle Eastern gem is celebrated in many countries. Shawarma not only satisfies taste buds but also nourishes the body.

What's the Difference Between a Gyro and Shawarma?

Gyros are made from a loaf of ground meat, onions and seasonings, then spit-roasted. Shawarmas are cuts of meat, marinated and stacked, then spit roasted vertically.

The employees at Basha were super helpful, patient, and understanding. I told them I had a gluten allergy and they provided recommendations, washed their hands, and changed gloves for me even when it started to get busy. Everyone enjoyed the food and it was very filling for a reasonable price. 10/10 recommend.

Great food that’s very well priced. Picked up a feast for four and everyone was really happy with the food. Garlic sauce is on point. You get a good amount of rice that’s seasoned really well. Can’t go wrong with leftovers

I tried Basha's while visiting family in Canada. Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food is one of my favorites, so I had to check this place out. I got the Mixed Grill plate so I could try all three meats. My favorite was the chicken. The plate comes with Fattoush Salad, Garlic Sauce, Pita Bread, Hummus, and Rice. It was all so delicious and very fresh! The restaurant is very modern, clean inside, and the customer service was great. Whenever I am in Ontario again, I will definitely be making a stop at Basha's for some authentic Middle Eastern cuisine.

This is now our go to place for Shwarma. I have tried the beef and chicken Shwarma plates and the meat is very savory and... almost crunchy from the thin slicing making it extra mouthwatering. Each plate comes with pickled veggies, fatoush salad and whipped garlic. The sides are pretty good but the meat is def the star of the show. We also get a side of hummus which is really good, about 2 servings, but never enough. Highly recommend getting this with your Shwarma plate.
