Mazza Shawarma: A taste you will surely miss!


My friend S, boyfie and I loves to eat shawarma and most of the time we’re just hanging around looking for something to nosh up, yes the three of us. Going back to shawarma, as we all know, the usual shawarma is a meat preparation, where lambs, goat, chicken, turkey, beef or mixed meats are placed on a vertical spit, and maybe grilled for as long as a day or until it was totally sold out. However, truly there is always an exception on every rule. Because Mazza Shawarma does have the not-so-usual shawarma setting (the one with the spit) but the taste was great and exceptional!
Mazza Shawarma
Located at the Hampton Gardens Arcade along C. Raymundo Avenue, Maybunga, Pasig City, Mazza Shawarma gives a taste that you will surely miss that build a desire of coming over and over again to taste those tasteful meals they are offering. This sumptuous food discovery is really worthy to be shared to my fellow foodie explorer as well as with my friends who always love to try something different or taste something beyond the usual.

Mazza Shawarma is owned by Mr. Aris Casino and Ms. Karen Dulay, who are both culinary graduates of Center for Culinary Arts. So, what you expect when a tandem of two chefs combined there talent in cooking – a delectable creation that will satisfy your appetite! Having a big appetite for Shawarma, that’s why they made their own shawarma place. The owners created their own special recipe of shawarma as well as the sauces. So, the unique taste will surely for Mazza Shawarma only.  

I visited Mazza Shawarma last Saturday (June 23, 2012), together with my blogger friends, Rain, Vance and Marco (who invited us!). It was a day full of excitement as we will be having a foodie adventure in a Persian Restaurant – Kebab, Shawarma, Keema and a lot more! So guys, without further ado, I wanna share you our foodie trip.
Pita with Jalapeño Hummus Dip and Garlic-Curry Dip
Pita with Jalapeño Hummus Dip and Garlic-Curry Dip | P70
Additional P15 for Jalapeño Hummus Dip
I liked the Jalapeño Hummus Dip which has bit kick of spice from Jalapeño and of course the Garlic Dip had an incredible taste! And when the two was combined it tasted great!
Beef Shawarma
Beef Shawarma | P75
The beef was not the usual shavings meat on the spit; it was patiently cut into a small pieces. How they do that, that’s a secret they will never tell! Wrap in pita bread together with cabbage, onion, tomato and Jalapeno. I tried to, as suggested by Rain, adds a lil’bit of Jalapeño Hummus and Garlic – Curry Dip into it and I liked it. It adds some kick on my Shawarma. Well, it’s better to try something unusual than wondering.
Beef Shawarma Pizza
Beef Shawarma Pizza | P195
Good for sharing, but just enough for me, though.
An 11-inch thin crust pizza topped with special cheesy sauce, onion, cabbages, tomatoes, and bite-sized beef meats. It was my first time to try this kind of pizza and I must say it is really a MUST-TRY to all the first-timer! Oh boy, this pizza really tastes succulent and if there’s love-at-first sight, well, Mazza Shawarma’s Pizza is a love-at-first-bite! Sooooo mouthwatering!

We also tried…
Beef Kebab Stick
Beef Kebab Stick | P45/ea
Ground beef marinated in spices, skewered then grilled.
And…
Chicken Kebab Stick
Chicken Kebab Stick | P35/ea
What I liked on these kebabs are they were not overcooked and doesn’t have the “nakakaumay / nakakasawa” factor. Plus, there’s no pungent aftertaste on every bite.

There’s also a…
Beef Keema
Beef Keema | P85
Ground beef marinated in tomatoes. Keema is also good for rice and pita bread, but for me I can eat Keema alone.
Red Iced Tea

Oh boy, I am now craving for Beef Shawarma Pizza! *Sigh* I already referred Mazza Shawarma to my friends especially to S who is living nearby. If you are planning to go there with your barkada, the cozy Persian restaurant can accommodate 28 people per turnover inclusive of 9 people seated in the smoking area. Moreover, you can also enjoy your online social life because they do have a free WI-FI. They also offer delivery services to the nearby customers. I am looking forward that they will open another branch (probably in a mall) soon.

Persian food in an affordable price that worth your visit. I am planning to go there on weekend with my friends. Hope to see you there!
