Shawa Wama invades 8Cuts Burger #i8Shawa

Love burgers? Love shawarma? Well in an ordinarily normal world, these two types of food items will never ever mix. You can only have one or the other. But who ever said life is ever ordinary? The metro's well-loved shawarma joint, Shawa Wama, recently invaded the space of its sister restaurant - 8Cuts and I personally couldn't be happier.

You see, Shawa Wama opened their first branch at the Powerplant Mall and for somebody who rarely gets out of San Juan City, this has been on my to-try list for the longest time. Thankfully, I got wind that Shawa Wama will be at 8Cuts until November 11, 2018 so I made the most of this opportunity and dragged Paul out for an impromptu shawarma date at our neighborhood 8Cuts outlet for lunch one day.

I could have easily ordered my 8Cuts favorites but I was a woman with a mission that day and it was purely all shawarma, hummus and pita on the agenda for that particular visit. We got the Beef Special Set (Php. 345) which is a hearty platter of your choice of protein (beef/chicken/primo beef), rice, slaw, pita, hummus and iced tea. This was so delicious! I love how tender the beef was and the rice was fluffy and fragrant just the way I love it.

What really made our meal all the more interesting were these four homemade dips which we happily alternated in trying. I personally love the creamy white garlic sauce paired with some bird's eye hot chili (which I felt was still lacking in heat).

We also tried the Stuffed Pita Sets (Php. 299) which is good for one but we opted to still share as we both wanted to try these two dishes. This is one that I don't mind ordering to go for the movies. The ground chicken was well packed inside a warm and soft pita pocket and stuffed with creamy hummus and sweet potato fries. Once again, we drizzled this with lots of garlic cream sauce and chili before a bite.

Oh...that sweet potato and hummus combination was amazing! ♥

Both are really good but if I were to play favorites, then it got to be the Beef Special Set simply because I love rice. I think the serving size made this a good, reasonable offer. At least for now until the 11th, I can have an excuse to indulge on Shawa Wama's specialties, don't you agree?
