While the manakish and Al Beiruti fries (the latter of which is topped with yogurt, sumac, zaatar, and parmesan) are getting a lot of attention, it's the chicken and beef shawarma platters undoubtedly continue to win over hearts.

Al Hallab

Al Hallab is one of Dubai’s more luxurious Shawarma spots. The freshly baked, pillowy soft bread that houses a juicy chicken wedge, a substantial portion of fragrant garlic paste, crisp fries, and crunchy pickles is what gives Al Hallab its Midas touch.
