Shawarma King

Shawarma King is a Lebanese casual dining concept located at The Garden Pantry, West Village’s leafy dining precinct. The outlet looks to showcase the best of Lebanese cuisine, streamlining the greatest hits into a menu of fantastic street food. Guests can start their culinary journey with shawarma – sliced chicken or lamb incorporated into wraps loaded with green salad, onion rubbed with sumac and sauce (chicken served with garlic sauce, lamb with tahini) or served on top of small pita. Alternatively, patrons can opt for meat served on a bed of rice or with fattoush salad, or skip the meat entirely in favour of fluffy freshly made felafel served with hummus and salad. Shawarma King’s menu extends beyond the carved meat, including dishes such as Lebanese breakfast pizza (with minced lamb sujuk, cheese, eggs and Napoli sauce), fatayer (pastry parcels filled with spinach, onion and lemon), za’atar coated pita, kofta skewers, minced-lamb-filled kebbe, dips, maamoul date-filled cookies and more. Shawarma King also serves Veneziano Coffee and folks can also takeaway alcohol with their order, including Almaza (Lebanese beer) and raki. Shawarma King is the precursor to Beirut Bazaar – a forthcoming Lebanese restaurant and bar set to open at West Village in 2021.
