Shawarma, Grilled Meat on a Spit
Shawarma is a meat preparation technique in Turkey where lamb, chicken, beef, or a combination of meats are placed on a vertical spit and slowly roasted for a long time. To serve the shawarma, long, thin slices of the meat are carved from the spit. It is then served in salads, in sandwiches, or simply on a plate. It is commonly served with chopped or shredded vegetables, pickles, and condiments like tahini or hummus.

It looks like the gyro stands we would go to when we were vacationing on Rhodes.
Very much like that, only the bread that the meat is typically served with is very, very thin although it has the same taste as pita bread.
Whoa! I’ve never seen that! Very cool 🙂
