Shawarma is a popular street food in the Middle East, and like all popular street foods, it's pretty tasty. Though you're unlikely to find a guy carving meat off a stick at a stand here in Miami, you can try this kind of fare at Shawarma in Kendall. The meat shawarma is fragrantly spiced and served with lettuce, tomatoes, and tahini sauce. If you're not ready for the full herby flavor, try the chicken shawarma. You can get smooth hummus as an appetizer or a sandwich, as well as baba ghanouj. The kafta sandwich is like a hamburger, rolled long to fit across a pita and seasoned with onion and parsley, among other spices. For dessert try the baklava or sesame cookies known as barazik.
