Shawarma Third On The Tasteatlas List: Here’s 4 Shawarma Places to Try in Batroun

Shawarma is a popular Middle Eastern dish consisting of thinly sliced meat, typically lamb, chicken, or beef, stacked on a vertical rotisserie. Seasoned with spices and marinated, it is slowly cooked on the spit, with the outer layer shaved off for tender, juicy, and flavorful meat.

Earlier this week, the Lebanese shawarma sandwich has secured third place in TasteAtlas’s latest rankings for ‘Best Sandwiches in the World,’ marking a significant achievement for Lebanon and its rich culinary heritage.

Here are four places to enjoy shawarma in Batroun:

1- Lafet Shawarma

As you take your first bite, you’re greeted by a burst of flavors – the savory richness of the meat harmonizing perfectly with the creamy tahini sauce and crisp freshness of the vegetables. Laffet Shawarma also serves a large variety of platters and sandwiches freshly prepared with a mix of mouthwatering flavors. Their menu is rich with great options like the sojok & mixed shawarma.

2- Machewe Express

Sink your teeth into layers of succulent meat, expertly seasoned and slow-cooked to perfection. Finished with a drizzle of velvety tahini sauce, this sandwich is a true feast for the senses.
