Me and my group of friends were at Shawarma Point the othr day and we had quite a good time. It’s always great to catch up with old friends.
I learnt that the joint’s aim is to bring the ‘World’s Healthiest & Tasty Lebanese Cuisine to India’ at affordable prices, without compromising on the quality and authenticity. I love healthy and I was intrigued.
We initially found it slightly difficult to find a table. I had no idea there were so many people looking for healthy food. The restaurant only uses Halal meat, which was interesting because very few restaurants do that. I was also very pleased when one of the servers told me that they use only 100% Wheat Bread. God knows how long I have been waiting for Café Coffee Day to get sandwiches made with 100% Wheat Bread on their menu, but alas. Anyway, I was overjoyed.
I liked how the servers were keen to discuss the menu and their products. They were courteous and friendly. The service was quite swift.
We started with the “Fattoush Chicken Salad”. A levantine bread salad dressed with extra virgin olive oil. It was a really green salad with a lot of seasonal vegetables. I liked the chunky pieces of grilled marinated chicken. The chunks of toasted pita bread gave the salad a scrumptious crunch. Most of my friends are really averse to healthy food and salads, (mostly guys) but when they are on a diet, they always look to order something that would taste good and be filling, even if it had plenty of greens in it. This would be a good option for such people. The aroma of the added herbs and the taste of zingy lemony spices made this salad a good decision for us. I say go for this juicy, nutritional salad.
Next in line was the “Chicken Shawarma”. It has a lot of sauces in it – garlic, mint and red chilli sauce. I liked the Saj bread, really fresh. I liked the subtle Lebanese spices and mayo in it. I am a big fan of good mayo. I liked how it enhanced the taste of the Shawarma.
We ate plenty of Falafels. I always ask for a little extra oilve oil in my hummus, it goes down very well with the falafels then. And garlic, oh garlic. I love that spice. I love cooking and I use a lot of garlic in my preparations. One of the reasons why I am a big fan of different kinds of hummus dips is because it has a lot of garlic in it, adore that.
We also ate some “Falafel Pita Wraps”, since we had eaten almost everything on the menu, they turned out to be quite good.
What was about to come next scared the bejesus out of me – tofu. Needless to say, I am not a fan. I have had some really bad tofu dishes around. I remember having Chef Vineet Bhatia’s creation of tofu for the fusion menu at Shiro, that was good. “Tofu Paneer Shish Tawouk” was marinated in herbs, it was grilled and came with pita bread. It was quite good for such a healthy dish.
The food is priced quite moderately. We paid only around Rs. 250 per person and we sure were quite content with what we ate.
We did not order the Indian Food on Shawarma Point’s menu but they did have dishes like Dal Makhni, etc. Shawarma Point’s got a lot of new outlets opening soon. I will go back again when I’m in the mood for something healthy and fresh.
