Will The Real Shawarma Please Stand Up?

Why is Yalla the only authentic Lebanese shawarma in Karachi?

Perhaps because the makers hail directly from Beirut, at the heart of Middle Eastern cuisine. It might be because we craft each individual Shawarma as a masterpiece in its own right, with a carefully supervised process to ensure a consistently perfect flavor. The magic behind our flavor might even be the fact that our recipe is a family secret, passed down from one generation to the next, perfected over the years, with its indigenous integrity still intact. What we do know for sure, however, is that our process for constructing the Shawarma allocates just as much time preparing its components as it does cooking them.

We start with premium meat which we marinate in a careful blend of traditional spices.

Part of our highly complex taste palette is the citrus we add to the marination process; three notes result from this native Lebanese practice; the zest softens the meat, the bitterness from the rind grounds the taste, and the sweet juice provides the perfect contrast to our dry spices. All of this coalesces into the flawlessness you taste from the very first bite of our shawarma.

What you might also notice in a Yalla shawarma is that the bread is thin in texture, meaning it does not overwhelm the taste palette.

In true Lebanese tradition, this bread makes way for the fillings to be the real superstars. Roasted on high heat, each filet is compressed into a thin layer of fat that brings out all the carefully curated meaty flavors before melting away in the mouth. This is followed by the Toum sauce, a garlic-forward emulsion, which forms the foundation of our Shawarma’s flavor. The only other sauce added is the green shatta (Middle Eastern chili sauce) for the spicy variant of our Shawarmas.

This is because, given our Lebanese heritage, we believe in the mantra of “less is more” in terms of a Shawarma’s sauce.

That is exactly why we neither overwhelm you with too many sauces nor do we put misplaced condiments like ketchup and chili sauce in our Shawarmas. A Yalla Shawarma’s after-taste, then, is tradition and authenticity.

The entire process results in a symphony of flavors, which make Yalla the OG in the sea of Shawarmas!
