Tourist tip #192 / Shwarma, that delectable Mideast classic
In the mood for some hearty street food? Grab some shwarma on the go - and take plenty of napkins with you.
Street food in Israel can be wonderful, and has little in common with fast food in the United States. Flavors tend to be stronger and the food isn't mass-produced. One favorite throughout the Middle East, in various iterations, is the shwarma, reminiscent of the Greek gyro and the Turkish kebab.
