Street Food Shawarma

Have I been away from blogging for a long week or less with no posts? Oh, my that’s kind of unbelievable for me. Yea blogging is almost my full time job. Everywhere I go or whatever I do I think of writing an interesting article from the information I gather. Yesterday was a very fine day, had a long drive from Jumeira village circle to deira. Here in Dubai the temperature is around 30-40 during the night, I am guessing based on the weather report I heard a few weeks ago. I never checked it since then will be checking after this, these days have been very busy. But believe me it’s so hot and you can never spend the night out in the streets walking for too long unless someone invents a cooler like a sweater. Walking along the streets close to al wasl or souk as they call it, everywhere you smell the exiting mouth watering aroma of grilled chicken, Which is grilled in a skewer placed along a grill vertically for almost a day or so, hot and spicy as you can call it to the Arabian level of spiciness, where as my level is way to adventurous, as we opt for a bit extra spiciness. Let’s get back to the grilled chicken, there is a grilled beef option as well. Both are delicious but chicken is my favorite when it comes to a shawarma. Shawarmas are a flat bread or Rotti filled with those grilled chicken or beef, a vegetable salad and some tomatoes with a couple of spoons of humus which goes really well with the Arabic flat bread/Rotti that is used for the shawarmas, always served with a slice of pickled green chillie, carrot, jalapeño or gherkin. I got some pictures but unfortunately I couldn’t get a picture of the shawarma as I had no patience to wait till I get home to eat it, the lovely smell of the shawarma said eat ‘ASAP’ so I ate it in the car. I really enjoy eating while driving. Oooops! I dint mean it that way, I wasn’t driving my hubby was!!!
