Type of cuisine: Middle Eastern
Shawarmas are dime-a-dozen in Dubai, and rarely can you chuck the word “gourmet” in front of them and get away with it. But at S’wich, which was launched with more than a helping hand from the former head chef at award-winning Downtown Dubai restaurant La Serre, it is perfectly justified. A quick and easy build-your-own menu makes ordering a 60 second job, as you choose one of five main fillings – chicken, veal, beef, duck, mushroom – and then up to four supplements from a list of 20, and sauce. Combinations are plentiful and by ordering online, you can save your creations for next time.
Favourite dish: You’ll be dining on these for 100 years before you’ve tried every version of the shawarmas, but a sure winner from the sides is the gorgeous and gooey sweet potato bravas.
Average price: Less than Dhs75
