Jacob’s Shawarma June 13, 2009

Posted by bigfatyellowchair in Food, Product Review.
Tucked along a side street in Ortigas lies a treasure from the Middle East. Jacob’s Shawarma, home of the real Turkish döner kebab, is a glorified shawarma. What makes this different from the run of the mill shawarma you (used to) see in every corner, is that it comes with a lemon wedge instead of the usual aioli. That fact alone already makes it a winner in the Loser’s book (Lemon has less calories, not to mention Vitamin C!). Healthier (it’s grilled on a panini maker and packed with veggies) and tastier, it enhances the flavor of the meat (chicken) instead of masking it in the garlic  sauce.
The restaurant also offers other authentic Turkish delights. Turkish coffee (as seen below) and baklava (a nutty dessert) is also available.
