Origin from- Shawarma, like gyros, is derived from it. Shawarma was taken to Mexico by immigrants in the Middle East, where it evolved in the early 20th century.
How's it prepared? Shawarma is prepared from thin cuts of seasoned marinated lamb, mutton, veal, beef, chicken, or turkey. The slices are stacked on the skewer about 60 cm (20 in) high. Lamb fat could be added to provide extra fat for juiciness and flavor. A motorized spit slowly turns the stack of meat before a heating element, continuously roasting the surface. Shavings are take off the rotating stack for serving, customarily having a long, sharp knife
