Sizzling Shawarma

Shawarma, yes, we all know this popular middle eastern sandwich has been romancing our appetite for a while now. If the west have burgers, the east have shawarmas. In the middle east, it is a selection of lamb, beef, goat or turkey. But since us Filipinos have fused it with our own, most commonly used meat is beef.

Pita Bread

We may have a different mixture of spices and meat used in making shawarma, but there is only one way to eat it and it is to wrap it with pita bread. If you find a shawarma shop that does not serve it wrapped and ready to eat, then you are at S&A Food Hauz.

You see, the boys at S&A Food Hauz serves a new breed of shawarma, the sizzling shawarma. I bet my 16 Gmail accounts that S&A Food Hauz is the only place in Cebu where we can find this type of shawarma. The combination of middle east and Filipino is topped with egg and just like sisig, you will have to mix it all up. Sizzling shawarma is served with, of course, pita bread.


Do you notice the first time you had your shawarma and you just can't get enough of the mysterious sauce in it? Worry not because the best part of this sizzling shawarma is that, you get to make your own little shawarmas and you will get to have your own sauce! Oh, and did I mention that the sauce is unlimited? Man, I'd donate my kidneys for this one.


One might say, this is crazy. Well it gets crazier because if you buy 2 orders of sizzling shawarma, you'll get 1 order free! For an approximate price of 100.00 Php per serving (pita bread excluded), you sure will get your hard earned cash worth.

Once you pass by Mabolo, be sure to check it out and don't get tricked with the simplicity of the place because S&A Food Hauz is one of Cebu's best kept secrets. One will surely fall in love with this shawarma just like how Claudine Barretto fell in love with Mark Anthony Fernandez. (Old school huh)

S&A Food Hauz also serves Shawarma Pizza, Siomai and Siopao. It is located at Juan Luna St., Mabolo (beside Leona's Bakeshop, in front of San Carlos Seminary)
