What Is Chicken Shawarma?  

If you’ve never encountered  Shawarma before, it only makes sense that you’d wonder what in the world is Shawarma? For added context, this delicious way of preparing meat has been around for centuries in the middle-east.

People traditionally made it with thinly-sliced pieces of marinated chicken, beef, lamb, or turkey that are layered onto a rotating skewer and cooked over charcoal or electric heat. 

The cooked tender, juicy slices of meat would usually be served with a flatbread, like pita or lavash, along with a salad or other accompaniments. Shawarma became a popular street food in many parts of the world and continues to be enjoyed today.

The Halal Guys are all about authenticity and have been well-known for tasty street food people have loved since 1990.

So when it comes to introducing a new authentic taste of Chicken Shawarma to flavor-seeking fans craving new food experiences, who better than your favorite purveyors of American Halal?
