We had again been to The Souq at Umm Suqeim. Last time I tried out Meat Me There. While doing so I had seen that just next door is a Shawarma Shop, La Vita Shawarma, and this one we wanted to try out today.
It is not a huge Restaurant per se, but you can sit outside and have a really nice view over the Harbor and you can even see the Burj Al Arab Hotel close by. Best time is probably evenings after sunset, but we had been there at midday. They do have a small but good selection of Chicken and Beef Shawarmas in various configurations as well as Hallomi, Grilled Veggies, Potato Chilli and Falafel.
We went the classic way and ordered a Beef Mushroom and Cheese Shawarma as well as a Chicken Buffalo and Ranch Sauce Shawarma. Additional to that we ordered some drinks and Steak Cut Fries. The Chicken Shawarma was really good and I liked my choice of Buffalo & Ranch Sauce. The Beef one was perfect as well and the beef itself was very tender.
This is surely a cool spot to hang out at evenings and eat some Shawarmas while watching the sunset. Only point for criticism would be that they have no big bottles of water and not Shawarma Platter. But that is not really critic is it? We will come back here for sure, but not during mid day 😀 .
