Even with all sort of franchise and Kuwaiti-concept restaurants and cuisines popping everyday in Kuwait, I still enjoy eating shawerma every now and then. Let’s admit it, it’s tasty, it’s satisfying, and can save you money when compared say to high-end restaurants. I tried to sum up the best Shawerma places that I tried in Kuwait with regards to taste, quality… etc. though I have to say that price of shawerma has increased a lot in recent years.
al Farooj: It’s a popular in U.A.E, and they opened their first branch in Kuwait in Salmiyah opposite to GÉANT. They serve beef, chicken, and Mexican shawarma, and they are all tasty, but remark is about the price (750 fils), that’s high wish it was cheaper.

Moqarmesha: It’s ran by Kuwaiti chef Ahmad Al Bader and located in Sha’ab seaside and Mahboula. They serve beef and chicken shawarma for 650 fils, and the taste is great and Lebanese bread is crispy and thin, the shawarma is small so you may need to eat two or three.
Address: Sha’ab seaside, 1st right turn as you enter from Fahaheel express way.

Abo Khodour: It’s from Lebanon and I still remember when it was first opened in Kuwait in Hawally, they later opened in Salmiya and Mangaf. Their shawarma is big with good price. I like their bee shawarma.
Address: Hawally, opposite to Al Bayan Bilingual School, near the round about on Beirut street.

Kurdo: They was a big buzz about their shawarma when they first opened, it does taste delicious especially the chicken. Though sometimes their shawarma is too oily and it’s relatively pricey (650 fils).
Their branches are located in Salem Mubarak street in Salmiya, Marina Mall, and 360 Mall.
Naif Chicken: A very classic but still offers good chicken shawarma for a good price (250 fils).
