Mazza Shawarma at Mckinley Hill
Mazza Shawarma is one of my go to places at Mckinley hill thanks to their Grilled Pita with Garlic-Curry Dip. I usually order one to go and enjoy munching on it while at work. My only problem with it is that the dip would run out before I finish all the pitas.
We have also experienced dining in here and I’d like to share with you what we usually order.
16 pizza-like slices of pita with a dip! This was what I was talking about at the start of the post. The pita itself tastes bland but that changes once you dip; a mixture of garlic and curry (not spicy) flavors will entice your taste buds. A few seconds later; you will be dipping it again.
Out of curiosity; we also ordered their kebab sticks. They have a strong smell and strong flavor that screams; eat me with rice please.
would be used to be my favorite dish at Mazza Shawarma. I love ground beef and their version was also very nice! Ground beef with a Mediterranean twist!
I would also like to note that their buttered rice is actually a cup of rice topped with a slice of butter.
I haven’t tried yet their shawarma in a pita bread but this dish already gave me a preview on what to expect. The beef was cut into mini cubes and if you have tried other shawarma places; you would notice that they are bigger than your average beef shawarma slice. This gave it a more chewy feel that you may or may not like.
In terms of flavor; I find it lacking as compared to the beef keema.
With a change of heart, this became my favorite at Mazza. I’m glad I tried it again and it changed my mind instantly.
We were surprised that they also have pizza so we ordered it; again to satisfy our curiosity. It was literally thin crust because the crust was thinner than their pita bread and every bite gives you a crunch. This allows for full pizza flavor appreciation although I couldn’t recognize the chicken from the richness of the sauces they used. It may look good for sharing but actually 1-2 persons can finish this as each slice is very light on the tummy.
My next target would be to try out their other dishes such as the grilled chicken (as I noticed a few tables served) and ox brain (curiosity).
