Shawermania

About

Shawermania is a Shawerma restaurant that offers unique and innovative dining space, wide variety of tasty meal and an excellent value. The Shawerma served here is not a typical Shawerma on a rotating spin, it’s the Azerbaijanian way of doing it! There is no better ending of a delicious meal than a sip of Azerbaijani Black Tea.

Shawermania, brings traditional food to the modern day lifestyle, making it easy for all customers to enjoy the goodness of the Shawarma while in their restaurant, on the go or at home.

Review

Located in Cluster Q, Shawarmania is one of the hidden gems for a shawarma with a twist! We’ve been there twice already and yes, the first time wasn’t the best experience but the second time we were present there at a sane hour and were recommended all the varieties that we had missed the previous time!

Its a cute cafe-style place which provides an indoor and outdoor seating, enough to capacitate 15-16 people! Its quite funky and colourful inside and perfect for lunchtime when you don’t want to sit in the sun!

The Drinks

Mojito:
Extremely refreshing to say the very least, it had good amounts of mint adding to the cool. But was slightly on the sweeter side.
Ice Tea:
Just what was needed on a super hot day in Dubai. A pitcher of extra cold Lemon iced tea to quench the thirst.
​Snickers Milkshake: 
Oh the sweetest ending! There was nothing that could’ve gone wrong with this! Snickers blended with milk and topped with whipped cream = heaven and also cholesterol but once in a while who cares? It was one of the good ones too, with it not being overwhelmingly sweet! Recommended to order this at the end of your meal.

The Food

​We ordered a large variety of things, just to literally get a feel of the all the fusion-ed stuff shawermania offered. starting with the:

Kaakeh Shawarma:
So kaakeh is traditionally a bag shaped bread topped with sesame seeds and is served with cheese or zaatar. Shawermania used this bread and created a sandwich with shawarma chicken and filled it with pickles and special sauce. It instantly created an impression on us as it was one of the best sandwiches we’ve eaten in a long time! the sauce bought every component together was the clear winner for the sandwich amazing-ness! It tasted the best when it was piping hot out of the kitchen.
Hummous:
While we really liked the presentation of this one served in a unique ceramic pan, the hummous itself was bland. 
Mexican Shawarma:
While the chicken was good, the sauce was more bitter than spicy for our taste. We called for some more sour cream to balance the taste.
Classic Arabic Shawerma:
This one was decent enough and special mention to the seasoned fries which were absolutely delicious. Just the perfect amounts of seasoning on the accompanying fries elevated the entire dish.
Burger Shawarma:
Killer! This was such a cool concept! Its exactly like cheeseburger but with shawema meat in it! So for example we called for the chicken version that came in a burger bun filled with shredding chicken off the shawarma stand topped off with tomato, sauce and slice of cheddar cheese! Its something so simple but the combination had a charm of its own! Its like you have no reason not to like the shawarma! The fries that accompanied it were tossed in some spices that were hot and went well with the burger! Felt so awesome.
​Hummus with Shawarma:
This was our least favourite of the lot, purely because we are so accustomed to the taste of hummus from local cafes like Al Mallah and Al Reef that this one didn’t match it. However when when bought this up with the Chef, he told us that the majority of the crowd coming here are European and they appreciate the toned down hummus and the subtle garlic sauce. So we, just amped ours with some hot sauce and didn’t question the expertise! It was something considerable that they’ve done knowing their max crowd need! 
​Biryani Shawarma:
Okay so this is essentially biryani with chicken or meat and in our case both because we asked for a combination! The rice was cooked so well and thankfully not mushy! It had an overpowering masala taste which made it very hot and hence very appetising to us! The chicken was served on the side and so was the yogurt and the combination of three was almost like a pulao but a tasty one at that! I like the fact there was an option of eating chicken with rice when you are just not in the mood for bread anymore!
