When your friend says you can have a bite of their Shawarma and you take the biggest bite humanly possible. ūüėÄ

The middle-east has gifted a lot of things to this world and Shawarma is just one of them.¬†The word ‚ÄúShawarma‚ÄĚ has been stemmed from a Turkish word ‚Äú√ßevirme,‚ÄĚ which means ‚Äúturning” in reference to the rotisserie-cooked nature of the meat, which “turns” around an axis. Shawarma emanated as doner kebab, in Northeastern part of Turkey and over the past few decades it has become one of the most favorite middle-eastern street food around the globe. One thing is pretty sure that once your tongue tastes these rolls of heaven, it’ll be left hankering for more. Are you looking for best Shawarma in Delhi? My Yellow Plate went on a Shawarma hunting spree and found these 5 places where you can devour the authentic Shawarma in your very own capital.
