Shawarma Snack Center in Malate, Manila

Shawarma Snack Center
Emil Salas St, Malate, Manila

Best kabbab in Metro Manila - Tender halal beef grilled to perfection served with charred tomatoes, native onions, chopped parsley, and a piece of warm pita bread. To complete the kabbab experience, you have to douse the beef with generous helpings of the homemade chili sauce and garlic sauce. Yum. I usually order sweet yogurt drink with the kabbab to neutralize the strong attack of the chili sauce. I dont know what makes their grilled beef so flavorful, since they simply grill the kabbab outside the snack house (in the sidewalk) in a makeshift griller made out of a drum. Interesting looking contraption, I must say.
Oh, they also have authentic Mideast 'budget meals' at P85. The beef korma and chicken curry are staples. They serve it with either pita bread or with rice. Skip the budget meal if youre really hungry cause the serving size might not be enough to sate hunger pangs.
Their cook is a Filipino who spent a long time cooking in Saudi Arabia.

The Shawarma Snack Center is on Romero (not Emil) Salas Street, Ermita, not in Malate, which ends at Pedro Gil Street. It is owned by Ramesh, who came to the Philippines in the 1980s and met his wife, Aminah, a Christian who converted for love.
