Their definition: Shawarma is a Middle Eastern-style sandwich usually composed of shaved lamb, goat, or chicken. Less often, it may contain turkey, beef, or a mixture of meats. Shawarma is a popular dish and fast-food staple across the Middle East, and is consumed across the rest of the world as well. Shawarma is known as guss in Iraq; it is related to the famous gyros of Greece. Gyros, however, is made of ground meat whereas shawarma is made of meat filets. (Source:
