Definition of shawarma in English:
Roasted meat, especially when cooked on a revolving spit and shaved for serving in sandwiches.
- With few options open to us, we bought from a street vendor roast chicken shaved from a spit and served on pita bread - shawarma.
- If they were hungry for something other than the normal dining hall fare, they could enjoy chicken and hot bean sauce, shawarmas (a Middle East sandwich made in a pita), or even ice cream from the concessionaires.
- The beef and chicken shawarma are tender morsels of seasoned meat.
