This spot, deep in the market, serves the best shwarma (seasoned meat cut from a spit) in the bazaar—you can order it in a pita sandwich or as a more expensive shwarma platter, or have it wrapped in flat, fluffy laffa bread. Whatever you choose, stay at the counter at the front of the restaurant while your shwarma is being prepared so that you can point out which of the wide range of salads and toppings you would like added to your order. We don’t advise trying to eat a shwarma sandwich while walking in the crowded bazaar, so grab a table in the large, arched-ceiling dining room that dates from Crusader times. No alcoholic drinks. Cash only.
