BOY SHAWARMA

I am forever a fan of the “Shawarma”, one thing is that I grew up in the middle east and Shawarma is what I crave for usually when I visit back home in Oman, ever since before when I was a kid, I would always ask my parents to pass by Rowasco (Oman) to buy a shawarma at this place called ‘ISTANBOLY TURKISH”, it is the best! If you have the chance to visit Oman, you should go there 🙂

Well living here in the Philippines for the past 4 years, there were some food places that sell Shawarma that don’t really look like a shawarma. (Trust me, I know how a legit authentic shawarma looks like).

Anyways my friend Vincent, told me a Shawarma place near their place that just got re-opened. So I decided to come along and It was lunch time so I was hungry. It was called “BOY SHAWARMA”, too bad I was unable to actually know the history and who owns it, maybe I was really hungry.

It actually easy to find the place,  its along  Estrada St. Malate, Manila. If you live near Taft that wouldn’t be a problem.

On the menu, they have the classic Shawarma, you could choose chicken (best seller) or beef. Then the best seller meal is the “BIG DADDY MEAL”, They have Kebab, Shawarma rice, roasted chicken, On the Grill: Afnan and Kabsa. Don’t worry the price rates are affordable. Students can afford it, mostly I’ve seen kids from La Salle and from CSB who came in to dine since its close to them.

I ordered the classic “Chicken Shawarma” which I usually order back home. Then honestly,so far its the closest to what I usually eat back at Oman, not bad. The garlic sauce was good, the fries were not as chunkier back home, but I am more of flavor, it tastes very good. My friend ordered the Shawarma rice, and he said it was good. My friend said it was cool, that they have expanded their menu,
