Hole-in-the-wall place – you’ve heard the phrase many times. It usually describes somewhere small, limited seating, simple menu. We use it as a compliment. It is the antithesis of the franchise, of the chain restaurant, of bloated eateries with hundreds of seats and even more dishes on their menu. Shawarma Shuwaikh is both a shawarma place, producing top-notch food, and a shrine to this humble meal. The place is at once homage to, and an innovation of, the art of cooking meat on a skewer, and serving it, in a variety of ways, in bread. This is a place that is proud to be Kuwaiti, proud to celebrate its integration of other cultures, proud of tradition but also of modernity. Oh, and the Shawarma is damn tasty too!
Shawarma Shuwaikh is located in Shuwaikh Residential area (at Shuwaikh Co-op), Istiqlal Road in Bneid Al Qar, Mahboula, Ardhiya, and Jahra For more information visit shawarmashuwaikh.com or call 2220 5888. Follow them on Twitter and Instagram @shawarmashwaikh.
