Food on the go

Street-side cafés offer a range of quick and delicious snacks, including the popular and inexpensive shawarma - rolled pita bread filled with lamb or chicken carved from a rotating spit. Shawarma stands usually sell other snacks including falafel, small savoury balls made of mashed chickpeas and sesame seeds which are eaten as they are, or rolled into pita bread with salad.

Another popular snack ‘to go’ is manakish, cheese melted between folded pita bread. A variation is the zaatar manakish where the cheese is mixed with zaatar ground herbs (usually thyme, oregano and marjoram), sesame seeds and olive oil.
