Shawarma Station, Rome

Last night my friend Jessica and I stopped into Shawarma Station on Via Merulana in Rome for a quick bite. I am absolutely obsessed with this place. It is a Middle Eastern tavola calda (cafeteria) and kebab joint conveniently located between my apartment and Stazione Termini. I take every chance I can get to walk by it, even if just to drool a little bit in front of the window as the smell of grilled meat and spices waft out of the doorway.

I am a sucker for their shawarma, sliced grilled lamb, yogurt sauce, and veggies wrapped in a pita. I love their felafel platter with hummus, stuffed grape leaves, and tabouleh, too. Actually I have never had anything at Shawarma Station that I didn’t really like. Last night I tried something new: chickpea, chicken and potato stew over rice. It was delicious and light, just the thing to start off a Saturday night out in Rome.

And the price was right. For just 5 euros I had a huge plate of stew and rice that I couldn’t even finish (so you know it had to be a ton!) and for 4 Jess had hummus, bean salad, and stuffed grape leaves. For more about Shawarma Station, check out this post from my friends at Food in Rome.

    Thanks for the info. I’ve often wondered about this place and I reckon a visit is well overdue. Given that it’s very close to a bar where we tend to watch rugby, it sounds like perfect post- or pre-match fare.
