The best and most delicious Arabic shawarma restaurant in Cebu city ((Shawarma Gourmet))

Hi everyone

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.
