This is Ahmed Alshehary the Arabic intern manager in 3D ACADEMY Cebu, Philippines.
This time I’ll introduce to you an Arabic restaurant in Cebu city – Shawarma Gourmet. It is located in the Escario Central Mall, N Escario St, Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines. It takes around 7 minutes by Taxi from the school 3D ACADEMY costing around 65-70 pesos. When you arrive at Escario Central mall, tell the taxi driver to drive into the mall’s area and you will find the restaurant there.
The owner of this restaurant is Lebanese and his name is Mansour. The restaurant is successful because Mansur cares a lot about his customers. He is very kind person and he helps anyone in need anytime.
When you go there you will see the sign- Shawarma Gourmet with the logo of the restaurant Shawarma in wrap.
You will find tables with chairs outside the restaurant for patrons who enjoy the outdoor chill.
The restaurant has amazing Arabic interior design. There are minimum space with seats inside that are just enough for 20 persons.
However, they do offer spare seats when all the seats are taken.
This Lebanon restaurant serves Arabic food. Of course, the main dish in this restaurant is the shawarma. But the way to make shawarma here is quite different from other restaurants in Cebu because they serve the real Arabic style over here!
In the menu you will find the main dishes like combos.
At the back of the menu you will find many Arabic food such as the appetizers for Arabic people. From my experience everybody like the Arabic food after they tried.
*In case you want to add chicken or beef shawarma in your baba ghanoush or the hummus you can add just ask them to add.
After eating, some people like to try the Arabic Shisha. They serve shisha here but you can’t smoke inside the restaurant. You have to change your seats to outside the restaurant.
Shawarma Gourmet serves the best and most authentic Arabic shawarma in Cebu. The food are delicious, cheap and fast to be served.
It takes only 7 minutes by Taxi from the school 3D ACADEMY – 65-70 pesos. You should definitely go there for a taste of Arabic when you are in town!
