9. If Al Ijaza is good enough for Faz3, it’s good enough for us

Back in 2016, the Crown Prince of Dubai discovered Al Ijaza as a tiny spot in Jumeirah that started in 1990. Today they’ve expanded far and wide- they just opened a branch in Al Khawaneej too! The hype is not just for their shawarma, but also the Hassan Mathar and their very special Fazza milkshake…or should I say, milk sheikh?

Where? Al Khawaneej, Umm Suqeim, Jumeirah 1, and more

Price? Below AED 10

1. Strawberry Corner

It’s this little corner shop that seems to have bagged the most number of votes! Strawberry Corner is an underdog in the Al Murraqabat area that seems to be getting a lot of attention for their shawarma. In many ways, this spot seems to have captured the essence of a good shawarma- a tiny store with a vague name, on the side of the street, Shawarma meat on public display, easy on the wallet, and ofcourse…plenty of karak to wash it down!

Where? The Deira branch has been the most recommended
