There are few foods as satisfying and convenient as schwarma. Pieces of marinated lamb or chicken (and sometimes beef) are stacked on a vertical spit, gyro style, then grilled until juicy and sliced from the spit to order. You can get them bundled tightly in a pita with veggies, pickles, and a garlicky yogurt sauce for maximum portability, or served with a full meal of rice, hummus, and salad if you’ve got time to linger. Here are some of our favorite places for schwarma in Philadelphia.
