Food Trip #14: Jacob's Shawarma (best shawarma in town)

Wednesday, March 30, 2011
Awarded as the BEST SHAWARMA in TOWN!
(Beef Shawarma 200)

Shawarma or Doner Kebab is a sandwich-like wrap of shaved lamb, beef, chicken, turkey, or fish or a mixture of meats.
Actually Jacob's Shawarma have different menu's everyday:
  • Monday – Chicken Shawarma 120
  • Tuesday – Beef and Lamb – 200
  • Wednesday – Fish Shawarma (Salmon or Blue Marlin) 160
  • Thursday – Chicken Shawarma 120
  • Friday – Beef and Lamb – 200

Anyway we had beef and lamb that day. When we tried their shawarma, they have a 2nd year Anniversary promo, 230 for 12inches Beef and Lamb Shawarma + Baklava + Apple or Mint Ice Tea (home made).

When I tasted their baklava, it is like a Turkish kakanin, it was really sweet and crunchy. I got only disappointed because i thought it would be in a large serving, or maybe in a "medium" size serving. I only received a tiny baklava. Haha. Anyway it was tasty, and i love it.

(Baklava 50)

About the ice tea, i choose APPLE tea, so when i tasted it, i thought it will be just like powdered juice, or something like that. It was truly HOME MADE! I mean also has the authentic taste of Turkish's apple tea. Though i really don't like the taste. Haha! Even my brother! But I really want to taste their yogurt, some reviews said that it was delicious

About the 12inches shawarma, we cut it in half for my brother. It was really huge! I really love the stuffing's of it! Actually if you will order for a shawarma, they will ask you if WHEAT or PITA. They told me if you are on a diet choose Pita, so i choose wheat(i'm not on diet)! Haha. About the stuffing's, it was full of vegies and i really love the combination of it, "it can never be compared to a shawarma that can be bought in the Mall I'm 101% about that!"


Overall it was very very very delicious! All ingredients are fresh! By the way, they have lemon juice, ketchup, mayonnaise, though i really don't like the lemon juice. It's very sour and I don't like the combination. But ketchup and mayo are the best! I TELL YOU! THIS IS THE REAL DEAL WHEN IT COMES TO SHAWARMA!! Very delicious shawarma that I've tasted! I will definitely coming back in this place!
