Shawarmas are not an indigenous street food in our city yet we can find them served on every street corner. Shawarma is one of the most liked street food items in our country.
Originated from Middle Eastern cuisine, the dish consists of meat cut into thin slices, stacked in a cone-like shape, and roasted on a slowly-turning vertical rotisserie. Initially, the shawarmas were made up of mutton but today it is most popular for the chicken variety of it particularly in India.
“Arabian Hunt” one of the exclusive street food outlets in Coimbatore exclusively serves Shawarmas without any added preservatives, colours or Ajinomoto. “Our shawarmas taste different and that is the reason for this one to be unique from others”, says Michael Raj, who owns the outlet.
Shawarma trucks have become the popular form of street food centres in the city. Arabian Hunt is located near the Perks Arch in Ramanathapuram, Coimbatore. Starting from regular shawarma the outlet offers a wide range of variants.
We could find 24 different varieties including Peri Peri shawarma, Mexican, Dragan, Mint and many others. “We use three exclusive masalas to make all the 24 variants taste unique,” says Michael Raj.
He adds, “Dragon shawarma is the spiciest and BBQ shawarma will have a tinge of sweet flavour. We also have a unique variant for kids which has nuts and dates”. They also have the “Namma Kovai” shawarma which is a blend of four different flavours.
Apart from shawarmas, they also serve many exotic varieties of alfams, kebabs and tikkas including Chicken tikka, BBQ tikka, Kashmir tikka. According to him, Kashmir tikka is the most sold variety. The outlet also serves soft drinks like lemonade, Italian grape and Red Guava.
