Touted to be the best “hole-in-the-wall” authentic Middle Eastern restaurant in Manila, the original Sharwarma Snack Center or SSC as it is known, is continually bustling. Owned by a Jordanian and his Filipina wife, SSC is a veteran of Middle Eastern restaurants having been in business for over 25 years, and its success is evident from the constant stream of customers, both local and foreigners.
Famous for their prized shawarmas (your choice of chicken or beef), the menu is typical Middle Eastern Cuisine, with items such as mixed grills, kebabs, middle eastern stews and typical Lebanese mezze such as humus, motabal or baba ganoush, and foul medames. Prices are affordable and the serving sizes are decent.
Seating is available either non-air-conditioned open to the street, or indoors with air-conditioning. SSC also sell a modest selection of groceries such as canned olives, humus, foul beans, halal hot dogs, bread and even the house chilli-sauce!
A Halal certificate and is on display and verbal assurance was given that the meat is halal. The servers also wear buttons proudly stating they only serve halal meat. The meat supplier is Al-Amin Halal Meat Products.
SSC is open 24 hours a day, and even has special offers – 3 shawarmas for P100 between 2-6am!!
