Why do we love shawarmas so much? Whether it’s seasoned lamb or chickpeas deep-fried to perfection, when tucked and rolled inside a grilled pita and slathered with tahini, our adoration really goes without saying. (Okay fine, you were partially right if you guessed we just like saying “shawarma”).

Shawarma, gyro, kebab, donair; it really doesn’t matter how you choose to define these Middle Eastern fast food bundles of joy, just as long as you have these three essentials: two hands, a lot of napkins, and a five dollar bill.

Check, check, and check? Great, then you’re ready for Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow to wrap up this week’s top 5 shawarmas for $5 or less.
