In the side streets of Shaab Al Bahary this small shawarma boutique has become a favorite among shawarma lovers. Their spices are picked carefully to enhance the taste of their fresh meats. The small sandwiches are great for a snack, or order more for a full meal. They serve five different types of beef and chicken shawarma, but it’s Mearmisha’s chutneys that give it a special flavor. You can go sweet with mango chutney, or spicy with green pepper or jalapeno. Choose to get it wrapped in saj bread or get it served on Lebanese bread; it’ll be as fresh either way. Our personal favorite is the Abo El Waleed beef shawarma, made with whole mint leaves; this is definitely a light and healthy choice.
Mearmisha located in Shaab Al Bahary, Al Thahaby Street, Building 32 (2261 5234). Open from 1 pm to 12:30am. Follow them on Instagram @Mearmisha.
