A popular Middle Eastern food, the shawarma is a dish where thin slices of meat are wrapped in pita bread with various vegetables such as onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers, with various sauces. In the Philippines, there are many restaurants and food establishments that serve shawarma—both on a pita and with rice. But with the quarantine still ongoing, cooking enthusiasts have put a twist on the well-loved shawarma through baking. (Read: DIY Baking Substitutes for Basic Ingredients)
The shawarma bake is a deconstructed shawarma of sorts where the meat, cheese, sauces, vegetables, and sometimes rice, are layered on a tray and baked until juicy and cheesy. It’s served with pita bread on the side, and you eat it by getting a spoonful of the baked shawarma, placing it on a piece of pita bread, and eating it like a taco.
While the shawarma bake has become a trending quarantine food, there are still a limited number of establishments that serve this unique dish. Which is why we list down three restaurants that are serving this #QuaranTrend so you can have a taste of the dish that’s stolen the sushi bake’s throne!
The PUNtry’s version of the shawarma bake has beef, cheese, onions, rice, tomatoes, and their own sauce. It comes in two different sizes: 8×8 tray for P750 (good for 3-4 persons) and the 12×10 for P1,400 (good for 7-8 persons).
